No, you can't. Which desktop env. is it that makes problems? Maybe using
another one is an option.

OTOH, why can they start it up on the other host at all? There's no need
to install one in the first place since users can login using ssh with
X11 forwarding and their windows will popup on their local X server display.

And then there's VNC.
