[solved] How to use VNC (vino) in LM14 Cinnamon?

Post by aelfinn » Sat Feb 23, 2013 12:02 pm

Hey guys,

I am trying to use the built-in remote desktop in LM14 but can’t seem to find the setting to change the display port. In Gnome, that could be set via the gnome-conf-editor. Any ideas where is this hidden in Cinnamon?

Okay, got this solved. This is what you do:

1. Install dconf-tools from standard repositories.
2. Start dconf-editor via the Alt-F2 launcher
3. Go to desktop–gnome–remote access
4. Check Alternate port and change port number accordingly.
