Headless?

Postby Gigs on Fri Feb 15, 2013 10:48 am

I'm fairly new to linux. I'm running Mint 14 XFCE and I'm trying to run it without a keyboard/mouse/monitor. I have teamviewer installed and set to run on startup, with the monitor attached, and with no mouse/keyboard, I can see the computer boot into linux and teamviewer starts fine, everything works, the problem is when I take out the monitor. I boot up the computer, leave for a bit, then try to connect with teamviewer, but I'm not getting a response. I only have one monitor and two computers.

So is there a way to get mint booting properly without the monitor?

Slgith update to this, I've been searching for quite a while and the only thing I seem to be able to find is making changes to a xorg.conf file, but when I go the directory, the file isn't there. This is really wrecking my head, any help at all would be appreciated vv;

If the computers are on the same desk a KVM switch is the best solution:

I have a PowerMac G5 running headless, I used a KVM to fool it into thinking it has a monitor connected. It works well and I use Remmina to connect to it to do any admin. Its the easiest route I have found. xx

I also followed instructions I found on how to modify xorg.conf, only it wasn't there so I created it. It didn't work, though. I would prefer not to have to go get a KVM. There has to be a way to get the gui to boot without a monitor -- no?
