Ubuntu tightVNC

To setup and use a Ubuntu machine...

  1. Get tightVNC server and client using the Synaptics package manager
  2. From a terminal start the server using "$tightvncserver -nolisten tcp :1" See
  3. To connect, a) For a PC, download and install. Start and connect. Don't foget to specify the full name including the terminal number, e.g. "computer:1" b) For another linux box, from a terminal start the client using $tightvncclient

My favorite server configuration:

$tightvncserver -display 1280x800 -depth 32
