  • To install VNC just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

    sudo apt-get update
    

    This updates the package list for apt.


    Then you'll need to install the Gnome components using Software Center:

    Install via the software center

    Or Using Terminal:

    sudo apt-get install gnome-core
