Thread: KDE Desktop Sharing

    KDE Desktop Sharing

    Hello Everyone!

    I just got my April edition of LJ. There is an article that talks about
    setting up KDE for desktop sharing. Sort of like, PC Anywhere.
    Has anyone tried this?
    I downloaded, compiled and installed the
    software(www.tjansen.de/krfb)and when I attempt to run the software I
    get an error: "There was an error loading the module" Under "Details:",
    This diagnostic is blank and the "Possible reasons:" An error occurred
    during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module.
    and.... "You have old third party modules lying around".

    I'm using RH 7.3 and KDE 3.0.3-8. and RH8.0.

    Has anyone tried this?

    Thanks.
    Gary

    If you are trying to use X (and therefore any X app, like KDE) remotely, all you need is to export your display across a SSH tunnel. http://www.afn.org/~afn57538/xforward.htm for details.

    No, this is more of a case where I can "take over" controls of a user's desktop for administration purposes. Same as PC Anywhere for Windoze.

    In this case, the user's desktop is actually displayed within a window on my desktop. Then, I will be able to do anything that was needed.

    I believe this was released with KDE 3.1. Correct me if I'm wrong?

    No, you're correct. It's packaged in with 3.1.
    Are you saying bite the bullet and upgrade?
    I dunno, it just came out. Sort of... the bleeding edge. So, I tried the install. I know that 3.0.... is stable. 3.1 isn't even dry yet!

    3.1 is stable, you shouldn't have any stability issues with it. I know I haven't. And plus, it's a nice step up from 3.0, I definitely reccommend going for the upgrade
