    Remote desktop

    How/where can I configure remote desktop so that other PC can access my lubuntu, since lubuntu doesn't has "System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop".

    Ok, I found the way.

    Install "vino" from synaptic package manager then run "vino-preferences" in run.

    Thanks.

    Hi.
    Thanks for writing your tip. I got Vino installed on Lubuntu and it seems to run.
    But when it is checking for network connectivity it end up telling me that others can connect to it only as "local Host". when i connect to it via IP adress the connection gets closed.
    I have two Ubuntu machines on the same network, and they connect just fine with each other, so it not related to my network.
    Did you perform anything else to get it working on Lubuntu?

    I recommend x11vnc server for use with Lubuntu, which you can download via Synaptic.

    It can be run for single use from a terminal:-
    Code:
    x11vnc -display :0
    ...but is more useful when run like this:-
    Code:
    x11vnc -forever -display :0
    ...so you can connect/disconnect/reconnect when needed.

    I run it from a simple script that auto runs on startup.
    Create a new file called "startvnc.sh" and add this:-
    Code:
     #!/bin/sh
     x11vnc -forever -display :0
    ...then put it in /usr/bin (which is in the $PATH) and make it executable.

    Then to autostart, in terminal:-
    Code:
    sudo leafpad /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart
    ...and add this at the end of this file:-
    Code:
    @startvnc.sh
    You should be able to connect via almost any remote vnc client like this: {IP}::{port}
    e.g. 192.168.0.7::5902

    It works well, but the server complains about that i dont use a password. Will anybody be able to access it from the internet?

    If you are using a firewalled router, the vnc ports are probably blocked, but read the notes here: http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/faq.html#faq-passwd ...and use password protection if required.

    The full reference for x11vnc is here: http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/

    Yes. It's not a problem.
    I do not remember what was wrong, but now i use vino server on Lubuntu and Remmina on Ubuntu (client). It works just as in Ubuntu.
