Description Felix Botner univentionstaff 2015-07-22 13:45:11 CEST
x11vnc - VNC server to allow remote access to an existing X session

UCC Client (as root)
-> x11vnc -noxdamage  -display :0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/\:0  --accept popup

or via ssh tunneling

-> ssh -t -L 5900:localhost:5900 root@ 'x11vnc -noxdamage -localhost -display :0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/\:0  --accept popup'
-> xvncviewer localhost

Maybe we can somehow incorporate this into UCC (UMC) to offer a "remote assistance" feature for UCC.

Intersting. I do a similar command.  I just use the lightdm authority file.

Dangerous as without authentication or encryption.

apt-get install -y x11vnc
x11vnc -display :0 -auth ~lightdm/.Xauthority
xvncviewer ip::5900
