Remote Desktop in Linux Mint 2.1 January 11, 2007Posted by NAyK in How-To, Internet, Linux, Linux Mint, Other Distros, Software, Windows.
In reponse to the previous post about RDC (Remote Desktop Sharing), as it turns out, while openSUSE has the remote desktop sharing tools installed by default, in Linux Mint 2.1 they don’t exist… you have to install them manually.
Using Synaptic I installed all the rdc clients I knew, and a few VPNs. I was able to test a few RDC clients and it was successful.
The most extensive (read feature-rich) one is: tsclient (terminal server client)
The simplest one is: grdesktop (gnome remote client)
ps. Linux Mint (probably like Ubuntu) does allow desktop sharing access to other systems, though I’m not sure whether Ubuntu has desktop file sharing options by default.
