    Opening a *graphical session* with the terminal ?

    Hi,

    I'm experiencing an issue with the remote control.

    My distant "graphical" linux session is currently closed.

    From a SSH Terminal, with lets me control my computer by "commands", how could I open the "graphical session" in order to control it by "vinagre" (VNC) ?

    Thank you very much for your help

    To use graphical applications during an SSH session:
    Code:
    ssh -X <user>@<host>
    note that you will not be able to actually launch an application in an X session on the destination machine if the user used to log on with through SSH is not logged in on the destination machine.

    Thank you for your answer, but that doesn't seem open a graphical session : vinagre is still not working.

    Vinagre is not a graphical session, but a desktop sharing utility.
    Like I said before:
    If there's not user logged in on the destination machine, you will not be able to start an X session on that machine remotely. Nor run graphical frontends on that machine.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Starting a X session remotely, it's what I wanted to do.
