Sharing an X session with VNC
Is there a way I can use VNC so that it uses the same desktop that is normally on DISPLAY:0? VNC in XP shares the desktop. Remote Desktop lets a user have 1 desktop and can share between local and remote displays. But with VNC in Linux, I am stuck running 2 desktops/X servers.
This gets really frustrating when I try to use firefox, but I left firefox open on VNC, and it won't let me open 2 sessions by the same user. In order to open firefox locally, I have to killall firefox-bin.
Or if you are running pidgin on it, you want to see the messages whether you are on VNC or locally. Some clients like Yahoo do not support multiple logins.
