Dockerized CentOS or Ubuntu Desktop with HTML5 noVNC Web Browser Connectivity - Get a Docker container setup with a CentOS or Ubuntu Desktop that you can connect to with a browser

Here is a nice one for making a Docker container with VNC and noVNC access. noVNC allows you to access the container using a HTML5 web browser so you do not need to install software.

Here is the GitHub of what we are using:

Step 1: Pick CentOS or Ubuntu

Step 2: Launch container:
CentOS
Code:
docker run -d -p 5901:5901 -p 6901:6901 consol/centos-xfce-vnc
Ubuntu
Code:
docker run -d -p 5901:5901 -p 6901:6901...

Crazy fast! You can use DNS instead of IP to connect.

You can also re-map ports and setup multiple, so if you wanted CentOS1, CentOS2, Ubuntu1, Ubuntu2

It took me under two minutes to have four Linux desktops. Total storage for the image is <1.1GB. If you're on a slow WAN download that can be an issue. After the image is downloaded, that's really fast to get them launched.

I used this to check if a site was down for just me. You aren't kidding that it's a 2s launch.

Can some kind soul show me the step-by-step to install the package from GitHub on Ubunto?

Basically, I have no idea on what to do when looking at a GitHub link/

I've never done the docker setup.

turns out I don't have a docker username so I need to run the command with sudo.

@nk215 if you want to add your user to the docker group so you do not need to sudo:
Code:
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
