Well... you can just enable the remote desktop feature (VNC) on the "client computers".

You can reach this setting by going to:

system -> preferences -> remote desktop

No i want manage more then one Ubuntu desktop. – Deepak Rajput Nov 3 '11 at 8:36
Thank you for -1... Maybe you should ask more precisely next time. You can manage multiple ubuntu desktop using this. What you might want is to manage multiple ubuntu desktop clients with one click, means making them all equal, but you didnt say that. I do not want to research this anymore, you were too unfriendly, sorry dude – Michael K Nov 3 '11 at 8:43
Sorry i don't mean that – Deepak Rajput Nov 3 '11 at 9:07
