Remote Ubuntu Desktop

Goal is to setup an Ubuntu Desktop which is accessible by RDP Protocol

– The desktop will run in a virtual instance with no fancy graphics card, only plain 2D
– The protocol should be RDP as nowadays on every client RDP is available
– if it’s nice looking it’s a plus
– performance should be similar to a RDP session to a windows system

After several tries with different distros i liked Xubuntu the most, for me the advantage is that i know Ubuntu server quite well.

To get it to run i had todo the following tasks:
– Install Xubuntu
– run the scripts from here: X11-o-matic script

apt-get install git
git clone
cd X11RDP-o-Matic
sudo ./ --justdoit
sudo ./ 

– last problem remaining is that i have us keyboard instead of swiss-german keyboard
