Vino is a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server allowing remote connection to your actual desktop. It is a default component of the GNOME Desktop Environment.

Installation

Install the package vino, which is available in the official repositories.

If you are running GNOME, you need to restart GNOME so that vino-server is started automatically when enabling the remote desktop feature.

Configuration

You can configure vino via the following command:

# vino-preferences

Now you can connect remotely to your desktop via a VNC viewer like TightVNC. Remember to forward port 5900 if you are behind a NAT device and to allow the connection through iptables.

If you use a standalone window manager like Openbox and it doesn't work, you can start vino-server manually or add the command to the window manager's autostart script

# /usr/lib/vino/vino-server &
