I am pretty new to Linux and I have a problem of remotely controlling my Linux computer from another computer, in particular, my Windows laptop.
With my Mac Pro, I use Vine Server on the Mac and VNC viewer on my Windows laptop to control the Mac.
I tried to access my Linux computer with the same VNC viewer but access was denied. I have searched for an option to allow remote access in PCLInuxOS' menues but, surprisingly, it produced no result!
Reading this Forum, I have found pretty complicated instructions on using TightVNC. I followed instructions, installed TightVNC on both machines, set the password to ask for the access in the X-Terminal of my PCLinuxOS computer. After that I was able indeed to connect to it via TightVNC viewer from my Windows laptop but I do not see more than a square with a gray-brown pattern. Also VNC viewer can now access my Linux PC but the result is not better.
Does anybody know a simple solution to this problem?
