I plan on getting an acer c7 chromebook and installing Ubuntu on it. I don't plan on using a desktop environment much, expect for playing games. My plan is to setup a server with Ubuntu, virtualgl, wine, and some games. Then I want to use turbovnc to remotely connect to play games.
Do I need a specific desktop environment, like gnome, kde, xfce, etc. to do this?
I'm writing a script that collects data on PC1, ssh's into PC2, downloads the latest build to PC1, exits ssh, and installs the latest build on PC1. Very simple script but problematic when dealing with command line output while shelling.
And is this possible to do without installing anything that is not currently on a standalone machine?
