Linux/Gnome Access?

I know Terminals supports SSH access, but is it possible to access a Gnome or KDE desktop through SSH, as when using NX clients like NoMachine?  I have many Linux VPS machines where Terminals' SSH mode works fine, but I have at least two which have a full desktop, and I would like to access those via the desktop itself.  I know I can probably use VNC, but was wondering if more direct access is available.

If not, is this functionality in the works?

Hi, until now there was no requirement to support such scenario. There are known issues with SSH and it may happen, some of them are related to your problem.

Personally I recommend to try VNC. What I know, there is no request to fix configuration combination  you described.

Thanks for the response.   Terminals is so great already, I think support of the NX /NoMachine protocol would be awesome.  Of course, there has to be enough of a demand, and if you say there is little to none, then so be it.    I believe that, as a workaround, I could probably install the NX web plugin on my web server, and set it up as a Terminals connection.  Would that work?

Meanwhile, I ask that do keep my suggestion for direct support of NX in the queue for the future?
