When I search for desktop sharing it is always standard ubuntu help. I can't find desktop sharing preferences to enable desktop sharing. I want to be able to fix another computer not on my network. I have the IP address. I've tried typing it in to remote desk top viewer and it comes back connection closed after a few mins.
Chrome Remote Desktop Sharing feature in Ubuntu
In this tutorial I will introduce you with the Chrome remote Desktop sharing feature. This is an alternate as similar to team-viewer type property for sharing the screen with remote clients. It seems to be very useful for remote desktop control features. I will install the webplugin in Ubuntu 14.04.

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 ).
I am using Ubuntu for the first time. I enabled desktop sharing and tried RealVNC viewer (on Windows) to connect to it. However it failed with the message "Unable to connect to the VNC server using your chosen security settings". The connection dialog box has a drop down for Encryption, which defaults to "Let VNC Server choose" but there are four more options, I tried all but none of them works.
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?
