X on Pi
« on: January 19, 2019, 01:31:41 AM »

Does anyone use X11 on Raspberry Pi ? Or do people use something like RDP or VNC instead always now? Or just stick to SSH or telnet?

VNC as it's built in on the Pi.

As Deathstar said, it's an option that can be enabled from the GUI, as can SSH & telnet.
VNC Connect from RealVNC is included with Raspbian. It consists of both VNC Server, which allows you to control your Raspberry Pi remotely, and VNC Viewer, which allows you to control desktop computers remotely from your Raspberry Pi should you want to.

Depending on how VNC is being used, it may be that there's both X11 and VNC running on the Pi.

It does of course depend on what software and operating system you're running on the Pi. ;)

I only use the command line on my Pi 2, so it's usually SSH only.
