VNC + LXDE-Desktop on Debian

Update the system first,

  apt-get update
  apt-get upgrade

Install LXDE Desktop

  apt-get install xorg lxde-core

Install TightVNCServer:

  apt-get install tightvncserver

Start TightVNCServer for the first time, it will copy config files and prompt you for a password:

  tightvncserver :1

Stop the VNC server, so we can continue to configure it:

  tightvncserver -kill :1

Edit the xstartup file:

  nano ~/.vnc/xstartup

Add the following to the bottom of the file:

  lxterminal &
  /usr/bin/lxsession -s LXDE &

Save and close the file.

Start the VNC server with your desired resolution:

  tightvncserver -geometry 1024x768 :1

You can now access your server's remote GNOME desktop with a desktop VNC client. Enter your server's main IP address, Port 1 (or 5901, alternately), and the password you set earlier to connect to the desktop.


Install optional fonts

  apt-get install xfonts-100dpi
  apt-get install xfonts-100dpi-transcoded
  apt-get install xfonts-75dpi
  apt-get install xfonts-75dpi-transcoded
  apt-get install xfonts-base

Install iceweasel (Web-browser)

  apt-get install iceweasel
