How to Install and Configure VNC on Ubuntu 14.04

Also you may wish to consider the alternative remote access and control solution - TeamViewer (free for personal use).

Thank you, VinDSL, let me try to describe this small task a little better.

It is not any problem or issue, I can resolve this small matter in various ways - (1) keep using the long Ethernet cable, or (2) use old Apple Airport Express in bridge mode (right now I can't find it quickly, but it must be somewhere in the house), or (3) buy a new WAP and configure it as a bridge to cable modem/WiFi router in another room.

When I installed Peppermint on this NUC and configured WiFi, it connected on 5GHz band (the cable modem/WiFi router is dual band, 2.4GHz and 5GHz), and the file transfer speed on LAN via 5GHz WiFi appeared to be considerably better, compared to 2.4GHz, so I thought maybe I can ask this NUC to do a little more - to perform a bridge function for the nearby Ethernet devices, so I can connect them to the same LAN on 5GHz WiFi instead of the Ethernet cable.

I have Intel NUC (7i7DNHE, to be precise, but I guess in this situation the model is not important), running Peppermint OS 8 Respin-2 64-bit - 5-port Ethernet switch - some Ethernet devices nearby (macmini, NAS) which I need to connect to the existing LAN without dragging a wire to another room - Wired/WiFi router and some other wired/wireless devices in another room - need to create/configure a WiFi bridge to that LAN using both WiFi and Ethernet in NUC (WiFi in NUC connects to WiFi router, and Ethernet devices connect to Ethernet port in NUC via Ethernet switch, obtain IP addresses from the WiFi router etc).

In Preferences / Network Connections I can add Bridge, is this the way it can be done? ... please point me in the right direction.

If you're setting up a dual boot system it's normally best to install Windows FIRST .. otherwise it'll overwrite the Linux GRUB bootloader.

That said, reinstalling the bootloader isn't that difficult .. if you find yourself in that situation again, just ask :)
Maybe in this case it was possible to restore the bootloader to its original state, I just had a feeling that it was safer to re-install Peppermint from scratch.

There is one thing in Windows that actually makes sense, and as such is worth considering for Peppermint - during Win10 installation, when rebooting after fresh Win10 installation from USB Flash (first boot from the hard disk) and the bootable USB Flash with Win10 is still inserted, the message appears "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", if no key is pressed during certain interval, then the system proceeds to boot from the hard disk; but in the same situation Peppermint will just boot from USB Flash again, when logically it should boot freshly installed OS from HD instead, so at this point it would make sense either to warn user to remove USB Flash in order to boot the installed Peppermint from HD, or to provide a similar opportunity to press any key, if another boot from the USB Flash is indeed desired.

Welcome to the forum!

From my side the only question is do you use Conky?

Thank you, 10i. I haven't used Conky yet, just installed it to try, and now for some reason I cannot find it anywhere in menus (except that it shows in Software Managed as 'installed'). Then I tried to run it from Terminal, and it worked.

Hi regulus and welcome to the nuthouse forum :)

The inxi -Fz output is fine on its own unless you have any problems.
Thank you, PCNetSpec ... no problems related to Peppermint so far (except that I was silly enough to install Win10 in a separate partition, naively hoping it would behave and restrict itself to that partition only - so then I had to re-install Peppermint from scratch, beginning with the hard disk reformatting).

Hi, I just installed Peppermint OS 8 Respin-2 64-bit on Intel NUC 7i7DNHE, inxi -Fz output attached below.

So far everything looks good (no m.2 drive at the moment, and I did not test Bluetooth yet).

Please advise on applicable tests/benchmarks other than inxi -Fz, I'll be happy to run on this computer any programs Peppermint developers and advanced users may suggest.
