Can Wireguard be used with Ubuntu's GUI VPN interface?

With OpenVPN, I set it up so that I can download the .ovpn config file, import that via Ubuntu's GUI, and then I can just turn the VPN on/off in the interface. With Wireguard, I can't find any explanation on how to do that, everything says I have to use the terminal.
Is it possible?

ASAP - Please help! Stuck in command line upon reboot in Ubuntu 18.04.4. Can't access Ubuntu GUI

ASAP - Please help! Stuck in command line upon reboot in Ubuntu 18.04.4. Can't access Ubuntu GUI
recently I restarted my Ubuntu laptop for the first time and was met with a command line that asked for a login and then a password. At first, I was unable to figure out my password but was eventually able to reset it using recovery mode. However this is when I realized that I was in the command line for Linux, fully logged into the system, mind you, but unable to access the GUI. After doing some research online I was able to find a solution using the "startx" command. However, when I do that it simply throws the error "xinit: connection to X server lost". Upon further inspection, it appears that this command is intended for server-hosted Linux machines, not my internally-run one. I also tried "sudo init 1-6", but they all just reset me to the same command prompt. I've provided a screenshot below that shows what I get when I login to the command prompt and attempt to use "startx". Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks!
I should add that what lead me to reboot my laptop was a weird glitch I experienced with Ubuntu on the GUI login screen, where it would constantly give an authentication error upon selecting my user icon from the list of icons. Basically, I would click on my user icon (techi) be prompted with the password window where you type your password, but before I could type anything some orange text (the type you normally get for mistyping the password) would appear saying that there was an authentication error. after like 1.5 seconds it would then immediately go back to the user selection window.

Ubuntu GUI Lag

Hello everyone, I am currently running Ubuntu on my Intel Hades canyon NUC and I just had a question about the UI and restarting it.
So every day or so when I return to my computer and unlock it the UI can become quite sluggish and for instance you can drag a window and you will notice it stuttering every so often as you drag it around. Upon logging out / re-logging in the problem goes away, so I'm guessing this has to be something to do with the UI... So, basically what I'm looking for is something such as a terminal command I can type to just reset it so I don't have to logout. (Something similar to restarting explorer.exe on windows). Eventually I'd like to make a shortcut key to do this command on the keyboard.
I've been checking around the internet but there are so many answers to this, and alot of them involve re-booting the computer etc.. which is not what I'm looking for. Right now logging out is easy enough, but I would just like to make it a tad easier.
Thanks in advance!

Copying data from Netgear Stora drive (XFS, I think??) to a regular NTFS drive using UBUNTU (GUI preferrably)

First, let me start by saying that I have zero experience and knowledge of Ubuntu.I was told and advised that I would be able to use simple and dumb copy and paste GUI in Ubuntu, by utilizing a USB bootable Ubuntu majig. I did that and the problem I encounter is that while Ubuntu sees and mounts all my NTFS drives, it does not see the Netgear Stora drive (which according to my research is XFS filesystem. Someone please double check me on this.
What is the easiest way to copy all of this data to my NTFS drive? If I MUST use terminal, please provide exact instructions because I truly know nothing about Linux. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ubuntu gui wont load with AMDGPU-PRO driver

System is working fine with two MSI Armor RX570s until I follow AMD's instructions to install the latest AMDGPU-PRO driver (amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261) Ubuntu will boot up to the user login page, when I give my user password, the screen goes black for a moment and then back to the login page. I am able to switch over to TTY1 and login using the command line interface. Anyone else experience this?

Very Simple Instructions - Ubuntu GUI Wallet

I believe the developers did their best with the time and resources they had, but they missed a few things. One of them is a working wallet for Ubuntu 13.10 (perhaps other revisions, but this is what I use). Well I managed to get it compiled from source and thought others could benefit from me sharing the instructions.
How to Build the Maxcoin Wallet GUI on Ubuntu 13.10
Based upon the developers instructions posted here Linux Build Guide
Start in your home directory (or wherever you want your wallet binary)
cd ~
Install the required tools
sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev libgtk2.0-dev libminiupnpc-dev qt4-qmake mingw32 synaptic qt-sdk qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libqt4-core libqt4-gui libdb++-dev
Create the final destination of the source code. I like a simple directory structure
mkdir maxcoin
Grab the source code from the repository
git clone https://github.com/Max-Coin/maxcoin.git
Enter the directory
cd maxcoin
First compile the command line version (sanity check of sorts)
cd src
Execute the make command
make -f makefile.unix
Now to build the gui
cd ..
(you should be in ~/maxcoin/maxcoin)
qmake
execute the next command (it will fail)
make
The failure I got was:
"src/qt/bitcoin.cpp:5:24: fatal error: QApplication: No such file or directory #include ^ compilation terminated. make: *** [build/bitcoin.o] Error 1"
This is where I expect most people get frustrated and start hitting the keyboard. The fix is actually very simple. The problem is that Ubuntu uses qt5 by default, but the wallet is built around qt4. So lets tell Ubuntu to use QT4
qmake-qt4
now execute the make command
make
Viola! You now have a maxcoin gui wallet.
I am sorry if this does not perfectly meet the preferred formatting for instructions. Please share with me ways to improve it and I happily will.
Maxcoin donations are graciously accepted: mY6JCZR4DuMxm1NMvw4yxgovmfHhjo5snt
tldr: Follow developers instructions but don't use qmake, instead use qmake-qt4

How Do I Open a Bash Shell Script via Ubuntu GUI?

I have a .sh script file and I would like to open it via gui. I found This online, but it tells me to go to Edit>Preferences>Behaviour and I have no idea what this means. Where is edit? Am I supposed to be in an application of some kind? Surely I'm not looking for an application named Edit.
I have attempted to open up the preferences via alt+enter and tried checking the properties of the file itself, all I can figure out is how to set the file as an executable, yet it wants to be opened with something regardless of what I do.
Any help would be great, thanks, apologies for my noobish nature.

Remoting into ubuntu GUI from Windows 10, only SSH capabilities currently on Ubuntu machine

So i had ubuntu running for a makeshift server at my house in NC, I moved to MI and i would like to remote login to the server from here, with the capabilities of GUI. I can only access the server through SSH at this moment and i am not sure of how to get into the GUI, any advice is appreciated. I tried google with no luck.

GUI access to Ubuntu

I run Ubuntu on an Intel NUC to act as a web server. I'm about to get rid of my desktop monitor, which I currently use to access the Ubuntu GUI environment (it's the default for 18.04).
I want to avoid SSH access for a number of reasons - I only locally access my server at the moment.
I have a laptop and an iPad Pro. What are the most elegant ways to connect to my Ubuntu device, that are robust to power outages (I'm a bit worried about relying on RDP in case there's a problem I need to fix).
My question could easily be phrased as "how can I use a laptop or an iPad Pro as an external monitor for Ubuntu" but I figure someone here may have dealt with a similar issue and have a good resolution.
My backup position is buying a small external portable monitor, but I'd like to have less stuff than more stuff.

How to auto-start xrdp?

Hi. I've determined that for me, using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is an easier way to get access to graphical programs in my linux environment than trying to make an Xserver work in Windows. I have installed xrdp in my Ubuntu instance (on WSL2).
Currently, I have to open an Ubuntu terminal and run "sudo xrdp" before I can launch. Is there a way to have xrdp auto-run at boot? (It seems like systemd is the missing factor.)
Thanks!
EDIT: It looks like just launch xrdp doesn't work. I think this works for me: sudo /etc/init.d/dbus start; sudo /etc/init.d/xrdp start
See https://www.nextofwindows.com/how-to-enable-wsl2-ubuntu-gui-and-use-rdp-to-remote for more info.

Easy/Dumb Persistent rsync terminal between shares

Hi all,
Quite possibly a really dumb question, but I'm personally struggling to find a solution.
What's the best way to run a simple rsync between two shares, with some way to monitor the process?
If I use the webterminal for unraid (and use the /user mountpoints as inputs), as soon as the client disconnects, I can't access that instance anymore, and so can't access rsync "progress" info. For now, I'm running rsync in an Ubuntu (gui) VM, which obviously persists between connections, so I can simply log back in with VNC to check on it, but I don't necessarily need that VM running full-time, and so would like to know if there's a more elegant way to handle this. As an added disadvantage, I'm mounting the shares as network shares in Ubuntu, which seems unnecessarily complicated, as far as moving things around on the unraid "box". For what it's worth, I'm currently moving things between the array and unassigned devices, though I think the "share" logic should work the same regardless.
Many thanks in advance, hopefully it's a dead easy one.

Is it possible to only run the desktop GUI locally for a remote Ubuntu server?

Is there a way to run an Ubuntu desktop GUI locally while using it to control an Ubuntu server remotely?
I don't know if I am asking that right.... I am not talking about VNC.
Do you know how you can use Visual Studio Code to remotely develop apps on Ubuntu? You get the advantage of running your Visual Studio Code UI locally but all of the development is done remotely.
Is the same thing possible (local UI but remote server) with the Ubuntu desktop GUI?
If not, why not?
