Can I install a GUI via SSH and later connect via VLC or the like?
What package would I need and how do I configure it via SSH?
Yes, use VNC:
1. apt-get update
2. apt-get install vnc
(remember returned screen number. i.e. :1)
1. Install a vnc viewer
2a. Port number is 5900+screen number. We'll assume the screen number
2b. From terminal.app: ssh -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5901 debian-host-name
3. Open your vnc server to localhost:5901
