I have 2 Ubuntu 14.04 machines running the default Ubuntu desktop, I only have a monitor for one so I'm trying to setup remote desktop on the machine without a monitor. How can I setup the non-monitor computer to accept VNC connections from my computer with a monitor? **I tried X11 forwarding over terminal, didn't work. Don't care about X11 forwarding as long as i can access the other with built in remote desktop client. ***Also if possible how can I do remote desktop with 2 Xubuntu machines?


You might try using the suggestion here: How to make VNC Server work with ubuntu-desktop without xfce to see if that does what you need.
