I'm running Ubuntu Lucid Netbook Remix on my laptop and I need to be able to share my desktop for a Skype call. Does anyone know how to get this done?
With Skype 188.8.131.52 I have found that you - apart from finding the right menu item in Skype - also need to be on a connection with sufficient speed. Otherwise transmission will be very slow or freezes, as if congestion occurs.
When I was on my private fairly low-speed ASDL connection screen sharing did not work, but when I switched to a fast university connection there was no problem with Skype screen sharing from my Ubuntu Linux to a Windows computer.
