Here is the thing guys: I enabled my GNOME Desktop Sharing 3.4.2 on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and installed the VNC Viewer software on my Windows 7 Desktop. I can actually access the Ubuntu remotely, but I kind of need to select part of the screen with the mouse to refresh it. When I open any application, the window does not appear. I need to search for it with the cursor or even select part of the screen for it to appear. How can I improve it for better results?
