I'm really new to Ubuntu 12.04 and I've been trying to get remote desktop services between me and my server. I don't have any spare monitors, keyboards or mice. I did connect said items too the server and got teamviewer running and connected, but I can't use those components every time I want to go remote desktop. I have ssh but I want a GUI on hand for annoying stressful situations.
I read somewhere that ubuntu doesn't start a GUI if there is no monitor connected, and tried those
xorg.conf setups to no avail. I believe this is the reason why my headless setup isn't working.
How can I get my GUI to startup while headless?
