Your help would be very much appreciated!
I have 20+ years programming experience but I'm not a real Linux expert. I am trying to remote desktop from Ubuntu (16.04) to Lubuntu (16.04) using vino-server (the Ubuntu default).
The remote server is on Google compute engine. I can successfully SSH into the remote machine.
I have spent approximately 60 hours over the last 10 days (outside of work) trying to accomplish this; but, I have not been successful and for the first time I'm approaching a forum. I have (unsuccessfully) tried so very many permutations that I'm not sure where to start.
I've tried many variations on
ssh (-X, -Y, -L),
export DISPLAY, etc. At best I can remote via
remmina but strangely it shows my client desktop. Perhaps someone could kindly point me to a solution that explicitly spells out the command line steps required to launch Lubuntu remotely (for 16.04).
I'm using Remmina/VNC as the client. If I apply suggested steps and they fail to work (for me) then I'll respond with the specific command line output.
Thank you for taking the time to help me in this matter. I don't normally give up but in this case I need some help from those wiser Linux community.
