I just switched from Gnome to Xubuntu (adding the
xubuntu-desktop to my laptop) because I decided that with an Atom processor and 2G of RAM the full gnome shell experience is a bit, well, slow.
All is ok but for the remote desktop sharing.
I can activate
vino-server correctly following these instructions (or similar --- there was the entry in the session manager already), so far so good.
The problem is that
vino-preferences has been removed from the
vino package (1)--- see this bug report for more info. It says (in Spanish) that now the vino preferences have to be set from the "Sharing->Desktop Sharing" in
gnome-control-center. I have the
gnome-user-share package installed.
But under Xubuntu running
gnome-control-center gives just a minimal thing (correctly, I think), and I cannot find any way to reach the preferences settings of
By the way, the server works (I am connected with it now), thanks to the fact that I had the preferences set up from the previous Gnome desktop session... but how can I access them in Xubuntu?
(1)asus-romano:~% dpkg -L vino | grep pref (1)asus-romano:~%
(1)asus-romano:~% apt-file search vino-preferences app-install-data: /usr/share/app-install/desktop/vino:vino-preferences.desktop vino: /usr/bin/vino-preferences vino: /usr/share/applications/vino-preferences.desktop vino: /usr/share/vino/vino-preferences.ui
...probably referred to some older package.
