what happened to Desktop Sharing in Mint 19 (Tara)

Post by mk010101 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 12:57 pm

I need to remote into my MintBox and have just installed Mint 19. When I go to setup Desktop Sharing, it is not there anymore! What happened and better yet, how do I install it?

Thanks

tons of searching and trying out the options to load, run vino, nothing worked. However, the only roundabout way I could figure this out (and it worked!) is via these instructions:

Hi,

I tried vino but performance is not good.

you can try installing x11 vnc which works great for me.

Or, alternatively, a more advanced solution would be to give this one a shot:

Gnome made the current vino version (the default desktop sharing server in 18.x) very hard to set-up outside of Gnome Shell so it was removed during the Mint 19 beta and not replaced.

It is possible to get vino up and running if you really want to (I prefer x11vnc also) - see the tail end of this thread - viewtopic.php?f=90&t=272356

Any reason not to use the x11vnc that is in the Mint 19 distro?
