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.

How to Install on Arch

# pacman -S vino

Then you can configure it via the following command :

# vino-preferences

You can now connect remotely to your desktop via a VNC viewer like TightVNC.

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