I'm trying to run a program on an ubuntu 14.04 server instance on Amazon, but it needs a gui. I can install lunbuntu and use x2go to view the desktop, but as soon as there is a hiccup in my internet connection, x2go's connection drops and the desktop environment seems to shuts down (along with my program).
Is there a way to have the desktop running all the time on the instance and use x2go to access it (instead of it being created when I connect), so the desktop runs even if I lose my connection? The whole point of running it on EC2 is to have increased stability vs my sloppy connection.
After many hours on this problem with tons of reading and trying out different solutions to set the DISPLAY and xauth file, I can't seem to get it to work. Can it even be done?
