HOW TO: Setup Debian VNC server (XFCE4 Desktop)

Below are commands to setup the VNC server with LES Debian 8 minimal image.
(If you encounter any prompts, just hit enter, Y, or next. "#" below means comment.)


apt-get update
apt-get install apt-utils
mkdir /dev/fuse
chmod 777 /dev/fuse
apt-get install fuse
apt-get install vnc4server
apt-get install xfce4
apt-get install iceweasel
mkdir /etc/vnc
vi /etc/vnc/xstartup
#add "startxfce4" to this newly created file, then save and exit.

vncserver
# configure the vncserver with password.

vi \usr\bin\vnc4server
#replace 5900 with your allocated port.
#assuming your allocated port is 11101 to 11120, then you can put 11110.
#when you access, the port will add displayNumber.

# reboot the vps, then login again. Start vncserver with display number 1. The port to access will be 11110 + 1 = 11111.
vncserver :1


#at your client PC, run vnc client, connect to your vnc server using the public ip and allocated port.
#the format is something like 1.1.1.1:11111
#When success connect, you will see a terminal in vnc program windows. start the XFCE4 Desktop
xfdesktop

#Right-click to view menu and enjoy!
#Ram usage show 97mb with Top command, SolusVM VPS control panel shown 60mb usage.
