So I've been trying for the past day to get my Ubuntu server to boot to desktop without a monitor connected to it. If it doesn't boot to the desktop, the vino server won't start. Which in result makes the VNC server not start.
I've tried to add a dummy monitor, followed this tutorial (tried to change the folder where the
xorg.conf file was in, to no avail), either it hangs in the boot screen, or it simply boots me to the login screen.
I have enabled automatic login for my user in the settings page and in the GDM config, so when a monitor is attached to my server, I'm automatically put to the desktop. But, when a monitor isn't attached, it opens the login screen where I have to manually click "Login" for the VNC server to start.
So I'm wondering if there is a good way of making a remote desktop connection to a headless Ubuntu server.
