Hi All,

Thought I would share this with the group, hope it's understandable.?
I have installed and tested/tried "Teamviewer" and it works really well.
I wanted something a bit "Lite"er for use around my home network.
So after some research, here's what I found and did using repo options.

1. Full Remote Desktop
First Part, On the PC(s) you want to Connect TO and control

Open a terminal Ctrl-Alt-T and type:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install vino
sudo apt-get install dconf-editor

You will now have 2 new programs, in the Menu
type: dconf and select dconf-editor
then
type: Desktop and select Desktop Sharing
   

In dconf-editor navigate to > org > gnome > desktop > remote-access and untick the [X] require-encryption,
just click on the the X at the top of the window to close it.

In Desktop Sharing Preferences set the options shown, you can set a password if you wish, then close it

Open a terminal Ctrl-Alt-T and type:
Code: [Select]
ifconfigand find your IP Address, it will say something like inet addr192.168.1.10
Keep a note of the IP Address for the next part. You can now re-boot the PC

Second Part, On the PC you are going to Connect FROM

Open a terminal Ctrl-Alt-T and type:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install vinagre

You now have a new program, Remote Desktop Viewer
in the Menu
type: Remote and select Remote Desktop Viewer and then click on the Connect

You can use these settings but use your IP Address the one you noted above, then press "Connect" button

Hi Scott(0)

Thanks... I'm the kind of person who can show/explain in words
But when it comes writing things down my brain gets out of sync...!!!

I have another one I have been playing with openssh.
If I just want see if another PC is O.K, or see if some things running
I can open a terminal and connect to it, and say just run htop from cmd line.
Will post something later

Dave

How odd, I set it all up over a year ago, never needed it since. It disappeared off the menu
Open a terminal, and enter:
Code: [Select]
vino-preferencesit will launch.


I also noticed dconf-editor missing from menu.!!!
Open a terminal, and enter:
Code: [Select]
dconf-editor

If you were desirous of a lightweight remote desktop app for use in a home network, was there a shortcoming with Remmina?  It's an app downloadable via Lite Software.
Want to thank me?  Click my [Thank] link.
