    How to enable desktop sharing through terminal

    I would like to know the command to enable desktop sharing through command line

    I can't get it switching on with gsettings, I'm unable to find the right command.

    All guides I've found always show this step through gui, Ubuntu settings/sharing, switch on the gui button...

    It is possible the command for switch on/off desktop sharing doesn't exist!?

    Please share with us your config: which DE (gnome,kde,...) is used ? which kind of sharing is expected ? (local/remote); sharing with other OSs ?

    Re: How to enable desktop sharing through terminal

    I'm not trying to use anything different from Ubuntu builts-in.

    Desktop environment, the same default Ubuntu bionic haves (i think is gdm3)

    Not expecting any kind of sharing / screen / remote desktop.

    The question is incredibly simple:
    Using the user graphical interface, you can go to Ubuntu settings, and then you can switch on enable sharing option. Nevermind if you gonna share desktop, image, audio, remote desktop control...

    My question is, the command to put that switch on or off through the terminal.
