Graphical login from Mint laptop to Ubuntu desktop

Post by hexter » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:13 pm

Hello.

From a laptop running Mint Sarah, how do I login to a desktop running Ubuntu Xenial from the Mint login screen? Both are on the same LAN and have static internal IP addresses.

Thank you kindly.

Edmund: Well, the normal procedure is to leap 200 feet into the air and scatter oneself over a large area.

You don't. If you want to login to a remote system then you need something like Remmina, TeamViewer or VNC Connect, and you need to login to the remote system from the local desktop, not the local login screen.
There are no silly questions, but there are silly answers.
