My cousin needs some help with his computer (I know a bit more about MS then Linux at this point). He has VISTA HOME EDITION, Which as far as the internet tells me ... cannot do RA without a third party software. But he says he found it and sent the invite to my email.
I have already download rdesk (I think that's what I want) so I can initiate a RA from terminal with IP or server URL, But everytime I try to access his through IP it says:
me@linux:$ rdesk ip.cous.comp.here
!!--'DISPLAY FAILED TO LAUNCH'
I was going to also look at getting tightVNC, but am not 100% sure it does what I want...
Other then this I have no idea what to do. I have never done remote with a Linux and a MS system ... Open to any and all ideas. Thanks.
(By the way, I am running Dreamlinux which is Debian based. It is the latest -far as I know- which is 3.5 built on Lenny stable. My desktop session is Xfce, but I can enable KDE or GNOME for applications that may need it. My cousin and I are 100 miles apart at the moment so this seems to be our only option. Thanks again.)
