OK. Using SSL/SSH Viewer and tapping in the IP address, I can fully screen share my MAC Mini which is upstairs, in fact, I'm writing this question right now in the OSX environment on my Laptop screen running Ubuntu 12.04. Easy.
However I cannot log into Ubuntu from the Mac -> Go -> Connect to Server, tap in the IP address of the Ubuntu Laptop.
So when I was on windows and working with a colleague I used to use Webex and would share my desktop, I could lock it down to showing only a single monitor - I can't find a equivalent on Ubuntu and was hoping someone could help...
My goal is to share only a single monitor ( I have two monitors currently setup in Ubuntu at present ).
When I connect to another Ubuntu 12.04 box via remote desktop sharing, I want the desktop to be gray (no wallpaper), because the connection is slow (DSL). In older Ubuntu versions, I'd use gconf-editor and tell it to display the background for remote_access.
How do I do the same thing with Ubuntu 12.04 running the stock Unity?
Hmm got Ubuntu 12.10 x64 and Windoze 7 x32 client machine . I want to run the Ubuntu headless and control it remotely .
Its supposed to be easy but im having technical difficulties . im using the steps 1-14 below . However I get to step 10 and Windows give me a Biatch 'cant connect'error .
