NoMachine & LXDE Installer for Ubuntu/Debian
This is the first in a line of tutorials I am working on for less experienced linux users to effectively use their VPS. I've been tinkering with a little script that some of you might find helpful, it's designed to install LXDE and NoMachine on a fresh VPS installation. All it requires is that you have sudo installed (defualt on ubuntu). Just tell it which architecture you're using when you run it (x86/x64) so it fetches the appropriate packages and it will fetch and install everything else you need to boot into nomachine. It's my first bash script so there may be some unforseen kinks but that's why I'm posting it :p
This script is designed to run on low resource VPS's so it installs minimal packages, but you may add any addition features you need (web browser, etc..).
Let me know what you think.
#! /bin/bash # script to fetch and install nomachine, LXDE for x64/x86 debian/ubuntu # nunim ~ sonicboxes.com echo echo Please select your operating system arcitecture echo read -p "Is the system x86?

When you login with nomachine, configure the client to run "startlxde" and nomachine will load right into the lxde screen.

Thanks for sharing this script. Tried to install NX on Debian manually and failed many times, will try out this script on my dev box.
