I'm completely new to lxc. I've installed lxc and lxd and created a Linux mint container. I'm getting into and out of mint via the CLI, but as I'm messing around with it I'm wondering: can you, say, launch this and see its desktop environment (provided it has one installed), as in the case of a full-blown VM, or can you only deal with containers in headless mode?

lxc will not provide anything similar to vm GUI but you can try running GNOME shell as per this article https://www.linuxjournal.com/content/running-gnome-container

when dealing with container I do not prefer any kind of GUI as it create multiple process to support GUI itself and container best practice always prefer single task or process in a container.
