Hi all, I have a computer with xubuntu 9.10 and a pc with kubuntu 9.10, and I need to operate on the xubuntu desktop from kubuntu.
On KDE there are Krfb/krdc for the desktop, but what can i install on xubuntu to do this?
Thank you :)

I like to use the minimalist method: install xvnc4viewer and then run it from the terminal or Alt+F2:

xvnc4viewer 192.168.1.100
(Replace the IP address, of course.)

I have an unexperienced user on the xubuntu side, so I hope this method won't be so difficult :)

what do exactly I have to do? I have to launch that command from xubuntu, without installing anything? and what do I do then after that on kubuntu?

I really need to control my remote computer at home, it's going crazy, and I'm 2000 km distant. Can anyone help me?
I have a newbie user on the xubuntu side, so I need simple instructions to tell him.
Thank you

Needs securing, but for easy access:
