My apologies, as I'm sure this has been discussed a lot. I did dig through the search and found some ideas, however, no solid solutions.
I have Amahi Server installed on Fedora 9. I am rather new to Linux, but want to be able to remotely access this box from within my network - mainly so I can lose the monitor, mouse, and keyboard. The remote computer I use is a dual boot Vista/Ubuntu machine.
I got the Putty/Xming thing to work pretty well. However, my problem is that being unfamiliar to linux I don't know what commands to run which will open up certain windows. For example, if I want to get to System>Admin>Network, what would I type in?
This made me want to see the full desktop, so I found the gnome-session command. This ran incredibly slow at full screen (using the Vista boot). Is there a way to get the X11 windows in Ubuntu?
I'll take an answer to either question: What do I type at the command line to get the GUI programs, or how to get X11/some GUI in Ubuntu. Thanks!
