I have a bunch of 11.10 laptops I'm administering. I am currently trying to start a remote desktop session to an user that's logged in. Here's what worked in the past.
- ssh -XC email@example.com
- xauth list
- su remoteuser -
- xauth add_data_from_step_2
- vino-preferences (enable remote access and don't ax me nothing)
- start remmina client and do my thing
I'm stuck at step 5, when I launch vino-preferences I get
glibc detected *** vino-preferences: malloc(): memory corruption. So I try enabling it with
gconf-editor, same thing happens. Finally, I manage to set it with
gsettings (enable access and no prompt). After I start vino with
/usr/lib/vino/vino-server & I get the same glibc blah blah thing.
Running xeyes, xclock, etc. works. Tried pidgin, firefox, they work as well.
