To allow desktop access for the bitnami user, follow these steps (source):

Debian
Install the gnome-core package:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-core

Reboot the machine.

You should now be able to log in to the desktop as bitnami user.

Ubuntu
Install the ubuntu-desktop package:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Create a new file named /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/60-bitnami.conf and add the following lines as shown below:

[SeatDefaults]
default-user=bitnami
greeter-show-manual-login=true

You can create the file by executing the following command:

sudo sh -c 'echo "[SeatDefaults]\ndefault-user=bitnami\ngreeter-show-manual-login=true" > /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-bitnami.conf'

Restart the virtual machine.

You should now be able to log in to the desktop as bitnami user.
