Having dumped M$ a few weeks back I am busy trying to learn enough Linux to function. So far so good although it is a "learning experience" Have Fedora 17 Lxde spin (updated a few days ago) runing on a Dell box (Working). Same spin set up on ooooold box (Experimental) where I can play with the OS without worrying about what I break while I am in endless learning mode. In future will use for test bed and just f'ing around while keeping the Working box stable. Both boxes networked behind Netgear router with fixed local IP's
Using old CRT monitors which take up more room than I have available so planned to make Experimental box headless using Tiger VNC server on Experimental and client on Working box. Using this thread and smr54
setup page, managed to get it working to the point I can use the client (Remmina as shipped config modified via gui to enable copy/paste, and so on) on Working to access a desktop session on Experimental. xstartup file on Expermental is same as MotherDawg's
file on post 43
vncconfig -iconic -nowin & <<<<===== Needed for clipboard transfer
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
/usr/bin/xfce4-session & <<<<===== Seems to be more stable...
Copy/Paste functions either via mouse or control v/c do not work in either direction although they function fine on Experimental desktop via vnc.
Cannot access/use some functions of desktop eg:
Logout dialog only allows logout, restart and shutdown options greyed out. (Can reboot from terminal using sudo reboot)
Add remove software gui semiworks but when it reaches "authorization required" popup, popup does not appear on client desktop (Still have second monitor hooked up to Experimental and interestingly enough popup appears there Not the rest of the dialog just the popup)
It would seem to me that I need to setup Tiger to allow me to "shadow" the running session on Experimental but I have not figured out just how to do that yet. Suggestions?
Last config info ... Single user on both boxes and vnc server, same user name, same privleges (admin) same pswds, selinux permissive, firewalls on - default settings
TIA for your input (assuming someone is still watching this thread) and tks for all the work. Only recent info I have been able to find pertaining to latest fedora distro. And believe me I looked everywhere.
P.S. curious if you all have tried freenx in lieu of tiger?
