Set up gutsy box for remote gui sessions

First thing I did was to install xfce, a lightweight gui. I just used synaptic, and chose the recommended beginner package.

Then I downloaded xming. Putty is already installed – you need to get this if you don’t already have it.

More to come.

Doh! When I messsed with my graphics settings, X stopped loading. I have an ATI video card, which apparently are very very buggy. So I’ve done a reinstall. More on this when I get the box actually doing something.
