Remote Desktop in Ubuntu 11.10 using Unity-2D


Hi,

I'm just setting up an old laptop for a friend using the (currently) newest version of Ubuntu (11.10) using the Unity-2D environment.

How do I enable desktop sharing for this computer?

I've been searching for hours for the usual panel that is present in all older Ubuntu versions. It's not part of the system-settings.
I do find a remote desktop viewer, but it's the desktop of THIS laptop I want to share.

Do I need to install an additional package - in the old days it was part of the base system - or did I simply miss it?

Thanks

The package provide the remote desktop server should be vino. Do you have a system settings item for "desktop sharing"?

Access Ubuntu Remote Desktop

You can go into system settings and there is a button for remote desktop connections. Go in there and start the service then on your other machine you are trying to access it from type the ip address or display name into your remote desktop sharing appliction. That should work. There's a decent tutorial here if you are having trouble. http://ubuntuforum.webs.com/rdpubuntu1104.htm
