I am given a project that needs to be done in CentOS. So I rented a CentOS 6 droplet on digitalocean.com. I created a user for myself.

Everything was going easy until I got to install a huge program called Xilinx ISE.

Here is the documentation:

Till here it was so smooth, I installed everything so far. But ISE is more complicated than I thought.

So I think I need to install a graphical interface to the droplet and another package to communicate through ssh terminal somehow. (I am using putty). I've been searching for ways to do it but I really could not. So, could you suggest me something here? Any easy way to install this huge software on to centOS 6?

Note: Remember I am at remote desktop reaching to remote server through SSH(PuttY)

  • Xming (for remote X11 over ssh) or using VNC (again over ssh) are two approaches. – thrig Sep 7 '16 at 19:50
  • Which one is easier you think? – Alper91 Sep 7 '16 at 19:54
  • Xming is probably easier to get working, though sucks if the connection is slow (e.g. only for local area network use), or if the connection drops. – thrig Sep 7 '16 at 20:23

Use ssh X11 forwarding:

ssh -X user@host

Then you can start xterm or any x11 application.
