Project Description

Must use Google Computer Engine for this project.

For this project, please use Google Compute Engine (GCE, [url removed, login to view]) to create an Ubuntu [url removed, login to view] VM.

After the GCE VM is created, run these three commands:

sudo apt-get install xfce4

sudo apt-get install xrdp

sudo startxfce4

Confirm that the following error is encountered:

Fatal server error:

(EE) no screens found(EE)

See attached TXT file for the complete error.

Thereafter, find some simple step(s) to avoid/fix the above error when running startxfce4 . Document these steps and send to me.

My goal is to use my Microsoft Windows 10 laptop computer to RDP into XFCE running on a GCE VM with an Ubuntu [url removed, login to view] image.
