Installing GUI on Suse


I am accessing a Linux desktop remotely via SSH. I get logged in successfully but would like to install the GUI interface

You're going to want VNC for that, assuming it has a desktop installed.

Thanks for your response. I have downloaded the VNC viewer on my remote machine, but it appears that I need to install the VNC server on my Linux host.

Can you provide a quick script or command line commands to do that?

Thanks in advance

You should find a number of vnc server programs in YaST or with "yum provides" if you have local access to the OpenSUSE box.

I use x11vnc, but tightvnc also works nicely. Those are the only two I've tried.
