Drag and drop not working on debian squeeze when connecting over VNC
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 25, 2011
its a known bug, reported via debian bugs, it appears on ubuntu as well. The problem is, if i connect to my headless (no monitor connected) debian server over vnc and iam using a gnome session, i cant drag items. Icons on the desktop just move back to their old place, and cant move or copy anything in nautilus as well as icedove / thunderbird. Especially in icedove it gets annoying, not being able to sort my email.
Somebody posted a workaround in the replies to this blog:
But its written for ubuntu, somebody got any idea how to do this on a debian machine? Or do you think pinning an older gtk+2 version is not a wise idea?
VNC Viewer Grayscreen Debian
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 10, 2013
I've setup my vnc using this guide http://tipupdate.com/vnc-server-on-linux/
This is on Debian-6.0-x86
After following the instructions, the VPS was set-up perfectly.
But after a sudo reboot in putty. I get the typical gray screen + black cross.
I tried commands: vncserver, tightvncserver and tightvncserver -geometry 1024x768 :1
But none of those seem to work, any suggestions?
Tiger VNC on Debian
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 30, 2013
I recently install tigervnc on my Debian server.
I changed the port to 5905, But I could not get that port open.
I saved the port in iptables and when I check the IPtables I could see that the port is listening. But when I check the port in netstat the port is not shown up.
Also when I telnet to the port I am getting a connection timed out error. Any hint what the cause could be?
Also I need to Install tigervnc on ArchLinux. Any useful link I could refer to Install the same?

Debian/Windows remote administration (VNC)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 29, 2010
Our office has a debian server, running as a samba PDC. My boss wants to be able to remotely access some administration functions of it, so I'm trying to figure out how to do it.
the main remote access device would be his Windows Vista laptop, and possibly also his iPhone.
A friend advised me to look at using VNC, and it looks like a suitable program, however the free version only seems to support windows XP and earlier. Does that mean the server only, or both client and server? we have no need to run VNC server on vista.
If that won't work, will the java web version do?
What we need to do, ideally, is just running a few scripts which are located as launchers on his desktop. These use Zenity dialog boxes for some basic user management functions for our system. (he's not a very technical user and we want to avoid making him work with a console). If it's really too complex to make zenity work, I could write non-gui versions of the scripts, although he'd be annoyed at hav

I have a debian server. It is running the latest stable version of Debian.
The following commands have been entered:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS versus LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) 201204?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2012
http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1979 I'm really having to ponder this one? Mate 1.2, when idle, really does use half as much RAM as Unity. That was a surprise, especially since I'm comparing 64-bit vs. 64-bit. I have yet to notice any of the rough edges and quirks that are typical of a Mint release.
Ubuntu vs Debian
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 28, 2010
Nearly all Ubuntu and Debian users are probably aware that without Debian, there would be no Ubuntu. Debian is the father and Ubuntu is the son. But I've noticed that there are numerous Debian users in the blogosphere that seem to consider Ubuntu the unwanted illegitimate son. Slamming Ubuntu whenever they get a chance. Not necessarily here on these forums, but I've seen many highly negative statements by Debian users regarding Ubuntu on other forums and blogs.
I guess my question is Why? If you're a Debian user who does not like Ubuntu, explain. I'm genuinely curious about the Ubuntu hate I've seen lately. After all, were all Linux users whether it be Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, Slackware, Fedora or whatever.
Ubuntu vs Debian

I am curious just in general, what the real difference between Debian and Ubuntu actually is? I thought they were basically the same, just different Ubuntu specific software installed on a Debian system but I have come across a few packages that stated they would not work on a Ubuntu system but can on Debian. So Im just confused now.
