View Full Version : [ubuntu] vino-preferences - different settings when run from terminal

October 29th, 2012, 11:40 PM
I have opened the 'desktop sharing' gui and set my preferences. Password, allow other users to control desktop etc.

I then read a guide that (after having no success with connecting from client) suggested I opened vino-preferences from the command line.

When I open this gui I have the same options but the settings are not the same as when opened from the 'desktop sharing' gui. At the command prompt I have previously run 'sudu su' so am running as root?

Why do these two GUIs that are the same - show different settings? Which one is showing the true settings for the server?
