How to start gnome on server

Postby msmoose » January 23rd, 2016, 6:26 pm

Hi

So I followed the directions on how to install gnome-core and vncserver and I am able to connect to vncserver with a computer. However my server is an old laptop and every once and a while I will want to take it with me and use it at someone elses house to share files. When I do that it would be nice to have a GUI so it would be easier for others to use it. During the instructions there is a step where we modify a file so the gui won't come up on the server on start up but how do I start it from the terminal for those occasional times when I don't want my headless server to be headless?
