I need to grow a disk on my Ubuntu server but only have SSH access to the machine and need GParted to do that.
Here’s how I’ve done it:
sudo apt-get install vnc4server openbox gparted
vnc4server -kill :1 sed -i -e 's/x-window-manager/openbox-session/g' ~/.vnc/xstartup vnc4server
Open port 5901 incoming, and access with a VNC client. Right-click to start the terminal within openbox, and you’ll be able to run any GTK+ apps, including gparted.
