I'm currently a little confused: what I'd like to do is to remotely access my Ubuntu 12.10 machine from an external device. I thought it would be straightforward, but I'm finding lots of issues and a scarcity of help.
Looking around I was finally able to pin-down the solution to FreeNX: it should be able to give me remote control over my machine with visual interface (not command-line). The problem is that its installation is a real hell: I tried to follow both official ubuntu documentation and different tutorials (such as this one which should be specifically tailored on Ubuntu 12.10), but I always ended up with errors and a non-functioning server.
Is there somebody who was able to create a functioning FreeNX server on Ubuntu 12.10? How did you made it?
