Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I usually use vinagre or vncviewer to work from home, but since my screen size is not the same on both computers (Ubuntu on laptop, Fedora in the office) it's not comfortable at all.

I'm currently trying to use X, but when I use it to open firefox4 it opens the local version, which is not good for me (I want to have access to articles so I need the university's IP).

  1. How can I fix this?
  2. Better yet, is there a good remote desktop viewer that dosen't care about different screen sizes?

To solve the firefox problem, use the -no-remote option.

For a complete remote solution, I suggest FreeNX.
