Ubuntu XDMCP Client for Remote Desktop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 31, 2009
I have two machines (Fedora and CentOS) located at the LAB on which XDMCP is enabled. I usually connect to them via Xmanager/Xbrowser on Windows machines.
However, now I switched to Ubuntu on my PC and I need a way to get connected those machines. Unfortunately, The tutorials I found on the Internet usually focus on how to configure the XDMCP sever on Linux. As I said I need something like remote desktop access on my Ubuntu to the other machines.
I would appreciate If somebody could provide a step-by-step guide for configuring/installing an XDMCP client on Ubuntu so that in the future people can use it. In fact I don't know what are the availbale client programs and how popular they are...

Remote login to Ubuntu 10.04 or Ubuntu 10.10 from Windows XP with XDMCP

I have to say that using XDMCP with Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP is exactly what I was looking for to remote in without a monitor. Thanks for those who posted to this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=16953. Even though it isn't installed initially for 10.04 it is possible to set this up. I hope this saves others time in their search and if I left out anything please let others know. I tried several things including Remote Desktop so I might of just in overtly left out something.
Since the original post I have also upgraded to 10.10 and it everything still seems to be working fine.

XDMCP : Ubuntu to Fedora host recognition problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 12, 2009
I've successfully used xdmcp to transfer a desktop of a remote Fedora host onto my local machine. The method I used was the xdmcp option from my GDM login screen, this in turn opened a separate window which automatically looked for any serving hosts. Alas it does not find my fedora host using this technique. However, when I manually add the host IP address it recognises it as a serving host and I can click the fedora icon and login into the remote machine. Why could Ubuntu not be automatically find this host when the original scan was done ; it would save me the bother of manually adding the host IP address.
configure lightdm for xdmcp in ubuntu 14.04 server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 27, 2014
I installed ubuntu server 14.04 and install lightdm.
I extract lightdm.conf from /usr/share/doc/lightdm/lightgm.gz and put it in /etc/lightdm.
And then commented off as followings:
For client, the following command is run under win8.1 (cygwinX is installed)
# X -query 192.168.0.88
But, it is terminated with error such as
"failed to connect display :0"
is there anyone to help to resolve this issue or how-to configure xdmcp in 14.04?
Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must
Ubuntu vs Mint
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 16, 2013
Just when I was about to install Ubuntu, I had a "why not look at Mint" question thrown at me. The reasons, my friends said, is that the Mint desktop (Cinnamon) is more like Win 7 plus the fact that Ubuntu has "lost its way" like Microsoft did with its illegitimate child Windows 8, in trying to be both Desktop and Tablet Operating System. True or False?
1) I am a Desktop only user - for business, no gaming whatsoever
2) I never have used the Windows Start Button except to shut down the computer. I never start programs from the Start Menu. I Do Not Need a Start Button.
3) I prefer to organize my icons with a program called "Fences"; and would like my Taskbar on the bottom of the screen(s) and absolutely not on the side of the screen
4) I need to network with Win 7 workstations and a file server.
2) Which of the two is faster? Ubuntu or M
