Jul 20, 2011

a server at work has been accessed through the desktop environment as root. I know this is a risk and since I have never done it before I was wondering if there are any files created by the desktop that could compromise the system and how could I clean it up.

Ubuntu :: Can't Remotely Access Desktop / When Desktop Is Asking For Keyring Password

Nov 20, 2010

I can't remotely access my desktop when the desktop is asking for a keyring password. Why does this happen? it means that remote access is useless because you would need to enter the password locally before you can vnc to it. I do not wish to disable the default keyring but is there a way of making vnc work so I can enter the password.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Access "Your Desktop Is Only Reachable Over The Local Network. Others Can Access Your Computer Using The Address Or Tabatha.local"

Feb 19, 2010

Running Ubuntu 9.10. In the Remote Desktop config dialog I get: "Your desktop is only reachable over the local network. Others can access your computer using the address or tabatha.local." I understand this means only the loopback ip address is available. All my other machines show their true local ip address (e.g., in this dialog. Thus I cannot log on to this desktop from other machines.

When I try to do a remote logon from another Ubuntu 9.10 box (or from an XP box using a VNC viewer), I get: "Connection to has been closed." What steps are needed to make this machine show its actual ip address? All file sharing between the various machines is working properly and all windows shares back and forth between XP and 'nix, and among the the vaious XP boxes and linux boxes are available as designed.

OpenSUSE :: Access The Desktop From A Windows Machine?

Mar 12, 2010

I want to access the Linux desktop from a Windows machine. I am able to get a terminal window with the TightVNC Windows client, but I only get a terminal window. Does anyone know how to get the entire desktop?

Also, from other discussions, it seems that I am supposed to be able to get a web session going, but I'm not sure how to do that. Does anyone know how to get a web session going through VNC? Do I need to run something other that vncserver?

Ubuntu Servers :: Linking Several OS - Access The Windows 7 Desktop Via Laptop

Sep 12, 2010

I am currently finalizing a SSH Tunnel (gSTM) via Ubuntu Server (see: [URL]). The gentleman who helped me there went above and beyond the call of duty as we used to say in the military. Accordingly, I wanted to start a new thread to explore options to the pending completion. So, several systems in play here. I will list two of the three with the presumption that the SSH situation is in play (testing it today from outside of my network).

Systems Currently in Play: Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition with all updates as of today's post: Server: Acer Aspire AST180-400A. It is currently being accessed from Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition with all updates as of today's post from a laptop: Toshiba Satellite A200. Router: Netgear N300 WNR 2000v2. Modem is Motorola Netopia 2210-02-1006. Proposed System To Add: eMachine ET1331G-05w running Windows 7. Why? Well, my girlfriend is terrified to ditch the Bill Hates way of things. It is running through the router currently as well.

What I would like to be able to do is access the Windows 7 desktop via my laptop on the road as well. Specifically, I need to be able to access and view documents and photos. Now, the docs are at least in OpenOffice; she switched to it finally. I would like to also be able to view my desktop to access docs and pictures on the server, but that may be a new thread as the Win7 situation is the priority right now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Use Remote Desktop Viewer To See The Desktop On A Windows XP Machine?

Nov 20, 2010

I have my main box, Ubuntu 10.04lts, and I am trying to use remote desktop viewer to see the desktop on a Windows XP machine. The machines are side by side The Ubuntu box is hardwired to my network router, and the XP machine is connected via wireless. Both get to the internet fine, and I can ping the Ubuntu box from the XP box. But, I cannot ping the XP box from the Ubuntu box, and Remote Desktop Viewer won't establish a connection to the VNC server I have running on the XP box.

Ubuntu Networking :: Using A Laptop As A Wireless Access Point For A Windows 7 Desktop

Mar 3, 2011

I have a windows 7 (64bit sadly) desktop computer with no wireless capability. Now before I go out and spend money on a wireless usb thing, I was wondering if I could use my laptop (Ibm think pad T60 running ubuntu 10.10 dual boot with crunch bang) As a wireless access-point and connect via Ethernet cable the laptop to the desktop (Probably through a modem?) so I can use the Internet for games on the desktop computer. (Games that wont work in wine, sigh). Just a note though, 64 bit windows 7 will NOT run anything.

OpenSUSE Network :: Dot Desktop Files Have To Contain Access Rights For Smb/http?

May 27, 2011

Problems with launching data files of the nas and saving to them is a kde problem. The dot desktop files have to contain access rights for smb/http etc and even when given these it still will not work. I have mainly concentrated on getting the VLC video player to work as it is capable of playing from just about any source, comes with codecs etc etc. Amazing package really.

Pure K apps such as kwrite at least work fine. I tried setting up samba but to no avail.

As dropping a file into VLC's focus didn't do anything I created a vlc desktop icon and dragged the nas file onto that. It plays and a kde error message pops up from plasma shell - can't find file!

I enable kde automount. The content of that when it starts is disturbing. It shows my system disks a detachable and not attached! No need to worry though. I selected mount on log in and attachment where the server was shown. VLC still wouldn't work.

Next I enable NFS file transfers on the NAS. This has allowed me to use open with directly onto an avi file on the nas. I can also click launch them. Remaining problem is opening files on the nas from within VLC. Up pops the kde message "you can only select local files". The file manager here seems to be an instance of dolphin. This suggest that there is going to be a problem saving files to the nas as well. Looks to be the case. VLC can convert formats and all sorts of things. If I select a file locally and try and convert it and save to the nas up pops the "you can only select local files" as soon as I select ok having set the path and file name.

Strange thing is that working transfers seem to be using CIF even though it took an NFS enable to get it partly working via KDE's automount. Dolphin only allows a CIF set up which has a distinct advantage as a direct ip address can be entered. The automount has introduced a very very long delay before kde is up and running following a log in. Samba is even worse in this respect and both seem to lack a method of direct ip input which means they have to find the server.

One other aspect. As far as NFS is concerned from a very recent post elsewhere nautilus works. Pass on CIF. And of course it's all instantaneous and ok on windows even on vista. Enabling the TV protocol on the nas has confused Vista as it only wants to connect like that and needs drivers. Might also be down to having NFS enabled though. MS might not like that.

I have filed all of this on bugzilla if anyone would like to vote - bug number 695648. Seems to me that the CIFs route should be the default for ease with many users on home networks. I'm also sure that the problem is basically KDE preventing aps from accessing the nas.

General :: Can't Log In To Desktop - Root Can't Access My Files Mint 9 XFCE?

Mar 9, 2011

A couple weeks after I installed the xfce desktop version of Linux Mint, I became unable to log in to my own desktop. I enter my password, but the screen fades to black and then fades back in to the login screen.

I am able to log in using the recovery mode terminal and everything works as expected. I can log in to the Mint desktop as root, but the superuser can't view my files. Instead, there are only a .desktop file and a README telling me that my files have been unmounted (they're not on their own partition) and they give me instructions on how to remount them.

So I follow the instructions. Running the .desktop through the browser GUI quickly opens and closes a terminal, doing nothing. Running ecryptfs-mount-private, as the README recommends, reports:

ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly
And that's where I'm stuck.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Connections - Access Files On The Other Computers In My House

May 22, 2010

Alright so i just wanted to try and get remote desktop connections running so i can access files on the other computers in my house. For my first try i went after my laptop. I'm using rdesktop.

First couple times i tried i typed in


After about 15 seconds it would pop back with


I realized that my laptop's firewall was blocking the packets, so i created a custom rule that allows all TCP packets on port 3389. So i fired up rdesktop again. Now it pops back with:


But instantaneously, not after 15 seconds (not sure if thats significant or not.) I checked my firewall's log and it allowed the tcp packets.

Software :: Remote Desktop And Multiple Desktop Windows

Dec 14, 2009

I have VMware server installed on this machine. I also have a Windows XP VM running all the time. I have it bridged so it gets a valid IP from my router and such and is in my network. I use KRDC to remote desktop to it and I make it full screen. However if I want to go back to my desktop I have to minimize KRDC.

Is there a RPD client out there I can use so I can go full screen on 1 desktop and have everything else on another desktop then use KDE's Desktop switcher or ctrl+alt+arrow keys to switch between desktops to flip between Windows XP and Linux without having to minimize?

Ubuntu :: Desktop Showing Files That Are Not In The Desktop Dir

May 20, 2010

I accidentally deleted a system directory so I had to reinstall. I reinstalled, and setup my users again in the same way. When I tried to copy my user files from a saved source, they now appear on the desktop in mass. What I expect is that only files in the Desktop directory show on the desktop, instead all files in the home directory show on the desktop, less the dot files. I can not figure out how the system controls what files show up on the desktop. Comparing the problem user to a working user failed to disclose the difference.

I really liked having files on my desktop and being able to change my background by right clicking...

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Files Between Desktop And Laptop (Windows 7)

Sep 11, 2010

I followed these steps to try and connect my Desktop(Ubuntu) and Laptop(Win 7) together so they could share files.


sudo apt-get install samba
sudo su
cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.comf_default
gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf


sudo su was not originally in the steps but it wouldn't give me permission to edit the samba file unless I did.Also at the end it said command not found or something like that when I tried to restart samba, so I just logged out and then back in.So now I can identify Ubuntu and Win 7 from on each other, but I can not access either of them. Ubuntu goes into windows network, then workgroup, shows the computers on the network but when I try to access one this comes up:When windows tries to access Ubuntu it request for username and password. I type it in but it does not recognize it.

P.S. I allowed the Documents folder on Ubunto to share across the Network, and while it shows up in along with myshare on Win 7, it still requests for username and password.

Fedora :: Where To Customized *desktop Files Go For System Wide Changes

Jul 4, 2011

making changes to *.desktop files in /usr/share/applications works for all users, but gets overwritten when those packages are updated. You lose all customizations. Placing the customized ones in~/.local/share/applications works, but you have to do that for all users (pain!). So, what folder do they go in for system wide changes, but safe from updates?

General :: Chainload Into A System In A Fully Loaded Windows Desktop?

May 4, 2010

Out of curiosity, can you chainload a Linux system via a Windows executable within Windows at the ordinary desktop?Knowing windows there would be enough holes to write at any memory address without "permission", but can it be done with a humble executable? Or is Windows just too active, without the chance of nothing happening at any one pointo that everything can be exited cleanly non-existent?I'm not asking for a program or guide to do this and neither do I aim to do it. As I've stated it is all out of curiosity on whether or not some sort of protection is in place to stop this kind of thing

Software :: Program To Full Remote Desktop From Windows To System?

Apr 6, 2010

I'm a student and I'm already able to access the university's Linux machines from Windows using a combination of Putty and Xwindows with Cygwin. The computers I'm ssh-ing into have Ubuntu on them. Is there a way to remote access them to get the entire desktop? Like having a virtual OS window, but be using a remotely accessed computer. Is there anyway to do this or should I just settle with the X11 forwarding through Putty? Thanks!

EDIT - Just wanted to mention that these are public lab computers so I can't just have myself logged in with a remote desktop set up and waiting. I'd need something that allows me to log in remotely as well on the server without needing to to change what's on the computer there.
