Install Ubuntu 9.10 server edition then connect with Putty :
Code:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freenx-team
sudo apt-get update
sudo aptitude install freenx
sudo /usr/lib/nx/nxsetup --install
Desktop edition with NXClient setup for you! (username : root, password = same as putty)

Works great!

I'm aware that it's relatively easy to install NX software in the Server distribution to run a remote desktop.

I cannot give you an estimated time for the Desktop version, I'm aware that some works are going on regarding the remote desktop software to use. we'll keep you informed.
Rats! I was looking for an easy point and click fix.

I have tried to upgrade 8.04 desktop and played around with getting a desktop on the 9.10, but I keep messing something up. I suppose if it were too easy I would never learn anything.

Thanks

1 year on and I can't see this as an option in my available distros. Any sign of it?

I was actually talking about operating system that we will soon offer, upgrades should be ok. The only problem we are aware of is the sound does not work. But we are looking into it.

Uninstall (sudo apt-get uninstal freenx) FreeNX that OVH uses with there Ubuntu Desktops and install NXServer.

You need to download and install all 3 from that page and a guide in the below link on how to install the deb from command line

I've just upgraded my Ubuntu Desktop from 8.10 to 9.04. I can connect fine through FTP but the NX Client starts suddenly closes when trying to display the desktop.
Someone told me I might have updated too soon and the OVH Jaunty repositories aren't ready. Is this the problem? If so, will I have to reinstall back to 8.10 or is there a way of fixing it without losing everything?
I'd be grateful for any advice.
Thanks in advance.
