I am setting up a ubuntu 12.04 LTS server that several non-technical users will need remote access on to run GIS (Geographic Information Systems) software, and other software.
I need users to be able to log on to this machine (remotely) to do their work. Also, multiple users will need to acces the machine simultaneously.
Because I have non-technical users working on this machine, I would like to allow each user to have their own unique remote GUI desktop session for whoever is logged in. Obviously just using some kind of screen-sharing or screen-control software wont work because the users will need individual sessions.
How can I accomplish this? Does software exists that can accomplish this task?
I though maybe I could just use "ssh -X -Y user@host", but it seems like that only brings up a window for each individual program that you run, rather than a full GUI desktop environment.
Any ideas will be appreciated, thanks!
