The former start menu item Share Desktop seems vanished.
Looking in Synaptic I found that vino is still listed as installed, but it is obviously broken: no vino-preferences available and no means to start it. Using remmina I cannot connect, of course. Why is vino still included in LMDE, then?
I did uninstall vino and tried x11vnc which complains a few seconds after startup:
Code: Select all
The x11vnc program failed to start!
Maybe there is another VNC server
already listening on port 5900?
although there is no other VNC server running, and changing that port no. did not help. What's the problem there?
I did not yet try Teamviewer which is recommended by many — is there really no working open source solution about?
