I've been tampering with this during the day, and I can't figure out what to do.
Im stuck at where I start the vino-server
(btw, why does " /usr/lib/vino/vino-server" work but not CDing to the vino folder and typing vino-server?)
anyway when I type "/usr/lib/vino/vino-server" I get the following message:
(process:13701): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Cannot open display:
Run 'vino-server --help' to see a full list of available command line options
Prior this I did this:
gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/remote_access/enabled true
That I found in a guide somewhere. I did not get any confirmation that the command actually did anything, but I suppose it would if anything went wrong?
So, where do I go from here?
If you are so kind as to reply to this thread, please keep it simple. a few days ago I didn't know how to change directories, little less what ssh was. Come to think of it, I most likely still don't understand
what ssh is.
I do realize I need VNC Viewer, which I have installed on my Windows 7 computer.
I don't have a screen attached to my ubuntu machine, and have to use SSH until I get remote desktop working.
Port 5900 has been poperly forwarded in my firewall(ClearOS).
I did some google on the matter, and some places said to run the command "export DISPLAY=:0.0" - however that changed nothing.
