    Connecting to an X session from Windows


    Hello everyone,

    I've been using the NX (nomachine) platform to connect to my linux desktop but it often breaks my desktop (I'm not sure it's causing the problem though)

    So I have a double question:

    1- How do I find out what's causing my desktop to break up (I lose the bar where the open applications are displayed when minimized, and I get a lot of error messages suggesting to delete some stuff)

    2- What do you suggest as an X-Window client for MS Windows to connect to a linux desktop?

    Thanks,
    B

    Hi, first of all sorry, I can not help you with the first one. for the second one I can suggest you:

    RealVNC - RealVNC remote control software

    and install vncserver on your Linux

    Code:
    apt-get install vncserver
    for Debian, etc.

    Code:
    yum install vncserver
    for RedHat ones.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply, I tried to install the vncserver and i was told that there's nothing to do (I'm running a FC7 distro btw)

    I then tried to go to the < /etc/init.d > folder and from there tried < ./vncserver start > and the server failed to start...

    So I tried to update/upgrade and it didn't work

    I then tried to remove the vncserver < yum remove vncserver > and got this:

    Setting up Remove Process
    No Match for argument: vncserver
    No Packages marked for removal

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    B

    Hi,

    Which repositories are you using? later I will try to install in my Fedora, and tell you how to do it.

    sorry, at my office I only have Debian.

    Sorry, I made a mistake, in Fedora is:

    Code:
    sudo yum install vnc-server
    it is in the updates repository
