    Remote Desktop with Vinagre on getting command line


    I'm playing around with trying to access a Fedora 13 system from a Ubuntu 10.04 system. Both are relatively new vanilla installations.

    I went into System - Preferences - Remote Desktop on the Fedora system and enabled Remote Desktop.

    When I connect with the Ubuntu system (ssh), I can login, but all I see is an ssh terminal session. I was expecting the desktop environment (GNOME right?) to come up.

    I'm probably missing something really basic...

    Thanks in advance if you have my solution.

    The 'remote desktop' is actually referring to a vnc server setup, on your ubuntu just launch vncviewer followed by IP,
    Code:
    vncviewer x.x.x.x
    a full desktop view of your fedora should come up if the vnc server is configured properly.

    Sigmax,

    That worked to get a shared desktop up. Thanks!

    What about if I wanted a separate desktop session running?

    coopstah13,

    Would the XDM install available in Unbuntu be the best package to use?

    It says it supports the XDMCP protocol, so it should work. I'm just not sure if there is something better. There is also KDM and the GDM "GNOME Display Manager" package is already installed with the default options.

    Since GDM is already installed, I will play with that, but I'm just not sure if the other packages are better or have more features.

    Thanks again for your help!
