I'd like to share Ubuntu 11.10 Desktop to my OSX computer in the LAN. What options there are? I have been using VNC in the past, but I was wondering could I open X server connection directly from OSX?

Also looks like Unity has horribly killed VNC support: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/759349

Also looks like xrdp is no go: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xrdp/+bug/846407

  • Is Teamviewer an option? – Uri Herrera Sep 10 '11 at 9:59
  • Is Teamviewer VNC based? – Mikko Ohtamaa Sep 10 '11 at 12:45
  • Yes it is VNC based but i never had any issues with it even when using the Android version if you have problems with Unity, you can use the Classic desktop as you may know Unity is a compiz Plug in, yet as a comment mentions in the bug you linked. – Uri Herrera Sep 10 '11 at 22:55
  • There is no Classic desktop in 11.10. However there is something called Unity 2d. – Mikko Ohtamaa Sep 10 '11 at 22:57
  • AH yes sorry i read 11.04 Yes, use Unity 2D by the way, the bug you linked to mentions that 11.10 should have resolved whatever problems VNC had with slow refresh. – Uri Herrera Sep 10 '11 at 23:03
