So, I’ve searched for literally hours on this subject. Seen various solutions. But practically all of them are for people who want to see their Ubuntu desktop on their Mac, with both machines on the local network.
I want to log into an Ubuntu server that lives across the continent. I can easily log in over SSH, and I managed to get X11 configured such that I can SSH in, run
sudo synaptic, and get the Synaptic window to come up on my machine to manage packages.
However, what I would really love is to be able to log in to the remote machine and see the desktop as if I were physically standing there.
Remote machine is running Ubuntu 10.4, I’m on OS X 10.6.8. I have admin rights on both machines. I also updated the bundled X11 on OS X to the latest version of XQuartz.
Anyone know if (and how) this is possible?
