Xubuntu Remote Desktop (VNC)

Posted by on Friday, 22 May, 2009

Xubuntu 8.10 has no remote desktop / vnc server setup by default.

This will allow us to simply remote desktop the console session (must be logged in to work), which is all I need.

sudo apt-get install x11vnc
x11vnc -storepasswd

Put this into a script and make it executable:

# Start x11vnc, require password, shared sessions, keep running when clients disconnect, and something...
/usr/bin/x11vnc -usepw -shared -forever -noxdamage &

And add to Applications > Settings > Settings Manager > Autostarted Apps
