Remote control KDE?


Hi, I'm running a SuSE 7.3 server.

I have SSH set up and I can connect to it from other computers. Now is it possible to control my KDE desktop as well?

There are two ways you can do it.
1. Have a X11 client on remote machine, and run X11 server on
your machine.
2. Use software like VNC(Virtual Network Computing). It essentially
send the screenshots over network to the client, and mouse/key
board events to server.

When ssh is configured to forward X, you can ssh from X (using a termianl) and then start remote X apps (also KDE apps). If it's not enough, use VNC as suggested above.

I still don't have this working. I got the remote Xwindows stuff working on my Win2000 pc.

But I would like the complete KDE desktop. Is this possible?

At least with linux-linux this works. It's some time ago I used (not configured) it. It was something with broadcast. So there is hope

Complete KDE desktop? Well, you can use ssh, but it would take a lot of bandwith. VNC is a lot better idea. What is the problem now?

I have VNC working for display 1. But my KDE desktop is display 0.
If I try to run it as display 0, I get the message that a VNC server is already running at that display.

How are you starting your vnc? If you're doing it manually you'll have to specify the display nmber.

Windows has a default display of 0. So for example LinuxBox -> WinBox your display will be zero
something like /path_to_vnc/vncviewer [ip address]

For WinBox -> LinuxBox you'll first have to start your vnc server by using the /path_to_vnc/vncserver [:displaynum] for example /path_to_vnc/vncserver :1

Additionally you can options for naming your desktop so you can connect to something other than a simple IP address.

Remember though from Win -> Linux you'll have something like [IP address:displaynum] ex:linuxbox:1

Hope it helps -

You can always kill your other processes aswell and ensure a manual start with a new display number

Run an X server on your win2k machine.

export DISPLAY=ipaddress:0

where ipaddress is the address of your windows box.

then run "startkde" (I think that's the right command).
You may want to try kdeinit also, can't recall which it is. For gnome2, use gnome-session. This will launch a new desktop to your windows display server.
