General :: Remote Desktop With Vinagre On Getting Command Line?
I'm playing around with trying to access a Fedora 13 system from a Ubuntu 10.04 system. Both are relatively new vanilla installations.I went into System - Preferences - Remote Desktop on the Fedora system and enabled Remote Desktop. When I connect with the Ubuntu system (ssh), I can login, but all I see is an ssh terminal session. I was expecting the desktop environment (GNOME right?) to come up.

Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop To Another Computer AFTER RESTART Using Vinagre?
I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 on a home server. I can connect to it using vinagre from another computer just fine. However, if I restart the server I can no longer vnc to it because I need to log in (start a gnome session). Is there a way to do this using just vinagre? Do I need to install another vnc server on my home server? The problem is that I don't want to carry a monitor from another room just so I can log in and start a gdm session if the home server gets restarted.

Ubuntu Servers :: 9.10 Server - How To Setup Remote Desktop / VNC Via SSH + Command Line
I am playing around with the idea of being able to use a cloud or instance based service to install Ubuntu 9.10 Server. This will enable me to have remote access via SSH command line.So far, I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 Server + Ubuntu Desktop to a virtual machine. I can access this via SSH and locally via the desktop. However, in the real environment the only access I am going to have initially is via SSH.
I would like to be able to connect using Windows Remote Desktop or VNC (whichever is easier and most importantly - most secure) to the machine.. even though the desktop is on there, I need to somehow configure the remote access all from the command line.I've had a read of various forums and have been trawling support forums for days but can't find a working solution for 9.10 Server or that fits my situation above where I will not have any physical access to the desktop or machine to configure remote desktop. It all has to be done via SSH/command line.

Networking :: VLC Remote Access With SSH And Command Line?
I am using my Nokia N800 as a remote control over wifi in my home network. I am using ssh to tunnel into my ubuntu box and start up music and movies. The command i use to do this is "ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org" I know that the -X option brings X to my N800. This is ok for music, but I want the movies to play on my desktop X screen and not my N800. Remember, I want to use the N800 as a remote control over wifi. What commands should I be using for vlc from the command line to do this? I want to be able to start, pause, fast-forward, and rewind movies from the command line just like you can with mplayer.

Ubuntu :: Command Line Gone After Removing Desktop?
i'm running a 9.1 server. I had the ubuntu-desktop installed for training purposes and I decided to remove it.I followed these steps:URL...Now when I restart the server, I do not have access to my command line. Or more correctly, I dont have a prompt to enter anything into. the last thing it shows on startup is:restarting OpenBSD Secure Shell server sshd.I can login remotely with no issue. Apache is working fine. MYSQL is working fine, Memcached is working fine. But no clue how to manage the server from the server itself.

Fedora :: Killing Desktop Windows From The Command Line?
What's the best procedure to kill a desktop window from the command line? I'm having the problem on a FC 12-64 machine that using the File Browser window locks up most of the desktop. This might be software problem or it could be due to a defective mouse. I haven't had time to see if other windows cause the same problem. To do that, I'd like to kill the File Browser window.
The only windows that work are terminal windows. So I tried using the command line from a terminal to kill the file browser. When I do a kill -9 on the process involving nautilus, the process dies, the File browser window flickers off and back on, and then a new process involving nautilus appears in the list displayed by ps -ef. Is there a way to kill the File Browser window and make it stay dead?

Ubuntu :: Change Desktop Environment From Command Line?
I installed the latest version off the download site yesterday, when first booting an error message came up that my hardware does not support the most recent desktop environment so I should switch to classic. After a bit of googling I found out how to do this.
The problem is that my hardware really doesn't support the current desktop environmet, I can't get the windows to appear, I just get black rectangles in the middle of the screen instead, so the GUI is inaccessable.
I am looking for instructions on changing the desktop environment from a command line (which I can boot to).

Ubuntu :: Change Desktop Environment/Session From Command Line?
I had chosen automatic logon. Then updated to 10.04. During logout to change Desktop Environment/Session, I noticed that GDM login screen had an option for KDE session although I had not installed KDE. I got curious. So I tried it. System hangs. Restart does not help because somehow gdm proceeds to the KDE session although I did not choose it to be default session. So I had only CLI left.
I got over it by stopping gdm (/etc/init.d/gdm stop) and removing gdm and installing xdm. Anyway, what is the proper way? How to order desktop environment from CLI and/or where is the default desktop environment option written in a file?

Fedora :: Adding Variable Command Line Parameters To Desktop Launchers?
I have added an application launcher to my desktop and it works fine. However, I want to be able to feed parameters to the launcher before I launch the application. So, for instance, if the command is normally "/usr/bin/foo something" I want to be able to add the "something" parameter dynamically after clicking the launcher but before the application launches. Is this possible in Fedora?
