Hi there , after seeing a lot of people having trouble starting with the vps I have decided to basically make a step by step tutorial in which we install a desktop environment for a ubuntu vps , we install chromium , firefox and flash in order to run any te without problems.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Cheap Linux VPS
- Ubuntu 14.04 64bit
- Bitvise SSH Client Download (Connect to your VPS and execute the below steps)
How to setup a Linux VPS and access it from Windows
Setting up your VPS for the complete installation
apt-get update apt-get upgrade
installing Kubuntu Desktop
apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
installing xrdp (this is the software which let’s us connect to the vps)
apt-get install xrdp
install firefox , chromium and flash plugin
apt-get install firefox apt-get install chromium-browser apt-get install flashplugin-installer
And that’s all there is to it , now you can access your vps from you windows machine and run both firefox and chromium without any issues because flash is also installed on firefox. I hope this tutorial was helpful.
P.S. If your vps is a bit slow try apt-get install lxde-core instead of kubuntu , this is a very lightweight desktop environment which uses about 35mb RAM.
