Fastai Paperspace GUI Desktop

Does anyone know how i can install ubuntu GUI desktop on fastai paperspace machine. Everything works fine but i am not used to using the terminal and i know it migth be for someone who know how to navigate the terminal commands but I believe Desktop environment would make my life easier for now.

I actually did install using this command using:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

but can’t find a way to start the GUI Desktop.

I haven’t tried it but you can try this

Thanks. This does not solve my problem. But i got hint from there and i could use my local machine from Gitbash to log in paperspace with ssh.
Then i found out a way to export data from my local machine to paperspace using this resource.

I am now set to continue learning. Thanks

Good to hear. I can recommend bitwise ssh. (no affiliation) Its free and has SFTP so you can easily copy files without scp, if you are more comfortable with GUI interaction.

The majority of your work in this class will be on a jupyter notebook, which will give you a GUI interface. I think you’ll probably spend more time in the terminal trying to get a ubuntu desktop working than you would setting up ssh and jupyter. Once you figure out a few basics, the terminal becomes much less intimidating, and not that different from the coding that you will be doing in this class.

True. Excactly, I feel it now that i have set up the ssh, every thing works like a charm. Less intimidating actually. Thanks
