hi everyone , i finished installing openstack newton and everything works good ! i would love to ask if anyone have a website in which i can find a cloud image of ubuntu DESKTOP .
i tried to install ubuntu 16.04 lts.iso ( not a cloud image ) but it keeps demanding installation after reboot like i have nothing done .
i need a desktop version in which i can run a cloud config script .
best regards

Simplest way to create ubuntu desktop is

  • create instance based on Ubuntu Cloud Imagesyou can find it here https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/
  • To install Unity desktop use the command
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop gnome-panel gnome-settings-daemon metacity nautilus gnome-terminal

But on a server I dought that you will be using Libre Office and other software that come included with the full desktop. So I suggest installing lighter version of Unity desktop using the following command, and then building on it as you go.

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop gnome-panel gnome-settings-daemon metacity nautilus gnome-terminal
  • Probably you wabt to acces server diferent then ssh. Install VNC server
sudo apt-get install vnc4server

VNC connections take place on port 5900 Grab the TeamViewer debfile:

 wget https://download.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_i386.deb

Install the downloaded DEB file:

 sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_i386.deb
