    Vinagre , can only see a black screen

    Dear All,

    I am using two computers and want to use remote desktop with them.

    I moved my desktop to a public IP and ssh'ed into it and started the vino server and tried to connect via my laptop to the desktop thru vinagre, but things don't work.

    I ssh'ed into my desktop. Used $sudo /usr/lib/vino/vino-server &
    no errors, everything is fine

    Then I type on the laptop
    $vinagre public-IP:5900 the client pops up and I see a black screen and nothing else.

    on the desktop with a public IP I see

    Composite detected, disabling XDamage extension.
    This is a workaround while XDamage extension does not work correctly with 3d desktops.
    Hopefully it will work at next vino release.

    All I get is a black screen. Things were good when both machines were in a LAN, but now it seems something has gone wrong. Any comments?

    Some extra info, when I log into my desktop from my laptop to star vino-server I user -XY as ssh options. Also I can see a

    when I run
    $vinagre <public-ip-for-desktop>:5900

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't have any experience with Vinagre, but I have used freenx server very, very successfully. If you can't fix it it might be worth giving freenx a shot.

    Thumbs up Re: Vinagre , can only see a black screen

    Try this:

    System->Preferences->Appearance->"visual Effects" set to "None" on the serving machine.

    This worked for me when only my background was showing on the client.

    I'm running vino, Ubuntu 9.10 on the server and vinagre,Ubuntu 8.10 on the client.
