While setting up my Plex I noticed that I couldn’t connect from my laptop to configure the server that I installed on a Ubuntu Server due to that they existed on different subnets. To solve this I installed Ubuntu Desktop temporarily on my Ubuntu ServerĀ and set up the server from a browser on the local machine.

But as I like minimal installs and not a bloated server I later decided to remove Ubuntu desktop completley. Here is how you do:

  1. Install Ubuntu Desktop without install RECOMMENDS
    $~: sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop
  2. Remove Ubuntu Desktop completely
    $~: sudo apt purge ubuntu-desktop -y && sudo apt autoremove -y && sudo apt autoclean
  3. Done!
