I managed to get my RPi3 running on an old TV with a composite-RCA cable. I have since enabled SSH on Raspbian, and I can access the Pi using my Ubuntu laptop - but only through terminal, as far as I can see.
I'm wondering how I can access the whole desktop, for example, of the Pi on my laptop. In other words, is there a way to access the Pi as if it were my laptop? I'm not sure if this is the same thing as simply running the GUI, or whether this could be done with TightVNC. It seems at least related but I'm new, so not sure.
Thanks very much.
