Beaglebone Black - Network Manager & VNC

Hello
I’ve flashed an 8 GB micro SD card with the Debian (4 GB) version found on the BB site. I now want a GUI to use the built in network manager and VNC. What desktop do you recommend I use i.e Gnome, KDE etc. Also I have an Archer T2U Nano V1 WiFi doggle that I’d like to use. Does anyone know the commands I needed to download and install the driver for that?

Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.

wouldn't bother with the flasher images for LXQT at all -- they leave
barely enough free space to even log into the device <G>)
{Heck, even an 8GB uSD card could be uncomfortable with an LXQT image, if
one is adding enough application stuff [GNAT, etc., your VNC]!
