Full Description


Ubuntu Core 14.04 + LXDE desktop + Firefox browser + TightVNC server. Runs as a daemon by default by using tail.


Include password.txt with the password for TightVNC (by default this is "password"). This must be at least 8 characters and is truncated if longer.


The default password should be changed. To do so start up a container and then run docker exec <id> bash -c "echo -e '<password>\n<password>\nn' | vncpasswd".

For automatically mapping a VNC port use docker run -dP kaixhin/vnc and docker port <id> to retrieve the port.
For specifying the port manually use docker run -d -p <port>:5901 kaixhin/vnc.
The shell can be entered as usual using docker run -it kaixhin/vnc bash.

@haggaie Sorry it's just 14.04 now. Several users and myself have had issues with installing further software without proper 16.04 support. Once 16.04 is more prevalent I'll reconsider supporting both.

I see the 16.04 version replaced the 14.04 version. (Although the title still has 14.04 in it). Any chance of having a different tag for 14.04?
