    Default Launch Spoon on ubuntu 18.04

    Hi All,
    I have installed pentaho on ubuntu server which is running on GCP. I have followed all the steps to install and the installation was fine. I ran the job from terminal using kitchen and it works fine. But when i am trying to open spoon, I'm facing the below error.

    If you read the other posts on this subject, you will find that you would need to have X running in order to use Spoon on a Linux machine
    This is not recommended.

    Do your design work on a workstation (which has a GUI) and upload your transformations to your server. Then schedule them to run via kitchen or pan (as appropriate for transforms and jobs)
