Hello,
I have created two Azure VMs, one is Windows 10 and one is Ubuntu 20.04.
I can use Bastion service to both of them and the GUI gets loaded for Windows 10 via Bastion and also via RDP.
But for Ubuntu VM, it only shows command line interface via Bastion but it shows the GUI view via RDP. Does Azure Bastion needs something additional to display the GUI view for Ubuntu VMs?

    The basic SKU of Azure Bastion only provides an RDP connection for Windows virtual machines. For Linux it's an SSH connection only.

    However, the newer Standard SKU of Azure Bastion has support for RDP for Linux virtual machines.
