Remote Desktops

Debian Packages: vino grdesktop xvncviewer

The ability to view a remote desktop is particularly useful when we need to help someone out with some problem they might be having on their GNU/Linux system. This ability is particularly useful where we want to support family and friends who have no computing experience at all and are getting started with GNU/Linux. These friends might live thousands of kilometres away and need regular help, at least in the early stages of using GNU/Linux. To help them out we might use our free Internet telephone for audio connection and use remote desktop display to control their desktop from a window on our own computer. It works well!
