I want to use desktop sharing. The vino package aand dependencies are installed. Throughout the web I read references to vino-preferences. Yet no such file exists and looking at the package contents at the Debian web site indicates the file is no longer part of the package.
Thus I have no idea how to a user is supposed to allow connections using vino.
When I manually run vino-server I receive the following error:
"The desktop sharing service is not enabled, so it should not be run."
I looked through the init scripts and services and do not find anything obvious. I do not know what 'desktop sharing service' is not enabled.
I installed x11vnc server and connected just fine. Yet x11vnc is ugly and crude looking. I prefer an app or dialogs that match the desktop environment.
Is vino broken or am I missing something obvious?
siguendo you indicate the link:
the end is the mystery:
# Sudo apt-get install gnome-user-share
After installing the package the option "Screen Sharing" it adds in
"Share" in "gnome-control-center"
And that's all

It would appear to be only a Debian thing or maybe an LMDE thing.
but 'x11vnc' was what I ended up doing
