You can either use the X forwarding method to log in via the greeter or use the TightVNC method to directly login to a desktop. Google either or both options for more info.

Hi I used this post to set up my friends machine the other day. He uses Xubuntu.

Note: This was only for his internal network, if you even think about using this from the internet make sure to tunnel through ssh. Make sure to lock desktop after n amount of inactivity as well.

When logging in to my Linux box at home from my Linux box here at work, I use the following:

ssh -X -l (username) (IP or Hostname)

for example:

ssh -X -l yournamehere yourbox.yoururl.com

From there, you can execute any X-Windows command and the remote window will display on your local display.

For instance, if you were to enter "dolphin" or "konqueror" (or whatever file manager you use) it will then display the gui filemanager on your local display.

You can also use the & if you want to still be able to use that cli and have the app run in the background...

ie: dolphin &
