This post shows how to setup a workstation for various Linux distributions.
This uses the lxc scripts described in this blog post: http://www.pokorra.de/2015/02/setting-up-a-server-hosting-several-containers-with-some-useful-lxc-scripts/
Inside a container, you can install an LXDE or XFCE desktop and X2Go server. If you route traffic to port 22 of the container, you can connect with the x2goclient to your workstation.
For Ubuntu 14.04:
apt-get install lxde-core apt-get install software-properties-common apt-add-repository ppa:x2go/stable apt-get update apt-get install x2goserver
For Fedora 20:
yum install @lxde-desktop google-droid-*-fonts yum install x2goserver
For CentOS 7:
yum -y groupinstall "Xfce" rpm -ivh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-5.noarch.rpm yum install x2goserver
