    Well, a monitor does not demand a GUI. It can display the CLI just as well.

    Just curious, but what do you need the GUI for?

    I figured out how to get it working. I changed my GRUB config. I shall post the answer once I'm done testing in a few days.

    True. I agree. I have both GUI and CLI use cases.

    To test few GUI applications I make, run VMs and couple of other GUI only applications I use.

    Another option? I have zero idea if this works on 19.10. Way, way, too new for me.

    I use x2go, which isn't tied into any GPU. Local or remote access are separate, so the x2go desktop is separate from the X11 session if you happen to be logged in. Some programs, mostly web browsers will only allow 1 instance running per username by default. There are ways to override that for most or just run each in a private firejail container.

    My main desktop runs inside a virtual machine and the VM host doesn't have GUI libraries loaded. x2go works fine, but it doesn't like heavy GUIs like Gnome3. There are plenty of other DE/WM options which work fine. openbox, fvwm, Mate, and other gnome2-based DEs should all work fine.

    One liability of x2go is that it uses ssh tunnels, part of the NX protocol, so external ssh connectivity is required. Also, an x2go client must be loaded on the clients. Many NX tools have slightly different interfaces which make them incompatible.

    Don't know if x2go is useful for your needs.
