I have a VPS running with Ubuntu 18.10 Server. I want to install a desktop GUI there, but I can't use or access the desktop environment on the actual physical machine (obviously, since it's just a VPS, running on some remote location).
Upon searching I find many answers like:
sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt install xvnc4viewer
or related stuff involving Gnome or X11 or tons of other options.
All these do seem to install desktop or GUI related things. But I am completely clueless as how to actually start or connect or access these from my own machine.
How do I setup and connect to the remote desktop, to operate the GUI on the VPS from a different location?
By the way I'd prefer to access the GUI from my Macbook (macOS 10.14 Mojave). Is that possible, or do I need to have an actual Ubuntu desktop machine, in order to access the remote Ubuntu server that is running the virtual desktop?
