[SOLVED] control my ubuntu pc from my ubuntu netbook using only terminal instead of vnc
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 25, 2010
ok my ubuntu server sits in my kitchen and is a headless box, though it uses ubuntu desktop not server
my netbook is a samsung n110 running ubuntu remix (love that os)
now vnc can be slow and awkward (specialy when using a internet dongle) and 90% of what i do is done in terminal so i wondered is it possible to somehow log a terminal season on my netbook into my server pc and use it as though i was using the terminal on my server pc
the things i vnc into it for
burning discs (i use grow something... forget the name but its all terminal based)
editing config files (normaly sudo gedit /home/me/.aplication name/config.cfg ) this triggers gedit so not sure if that would work as the cfg would have to be sent to my netbook to be opened in gedit of my netbook then sent across to my server pc
installing stuff to mess about with (normaly sudo apt-get install app name
so is it doable?...by a ubuntu newb?
I can't see my shared Windows Vista folders or printer in Ubuntu 8.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 8, 2008
I have an ethernet crossover cable connecting my Ubuntu and Vista PCs. I've been able to share the internet connection, and my Vista PC can access files on Ubuntu. However, Ubuntu can't see anything in Vista.
When I go to Places > Network I can see the Vista PC host name. But when I double-click on it to explore the shared folders and printer, it acts like there are no shared folders/printers to browse.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Which Linux is right for my hardware?
location: linux.com - date: October 10, 2011
Good Afternoon All!
So, I finally bought a new machine!!! After a lot of research, I decided that a Dell XPS 15 laptop was what I wanted. I would of liked to buy another mac, but they're way too expensive. I've heard some really great things about Linux but before I installed just any distro, I thought I should try and figure out which distro was right for me. Is it Ubuntu, Fedora, etc? Here are the specs for the computer I bought:
1 2nd generation Intel Core i7-2630QM processor 2.00 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GHz
1 6GB,DDR3,2 DIMM
1 Backlit Internal Keyboard - English
1 15.6HD TLF WLED LCD L50xX
1 NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 1GB graphics with Optimus
1 750GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive
1 Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Service Pack 1, English, No Media
1 Tray Load Blu-ray Triple Writer (reads and writes CDs, DVDs, BDs)
1 JBL 2.1 Speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 3
1 Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 and Bluetooth 3.0
1 90 WHr 9-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery
1 Microsoft Office 20
Ubuntu GNOME 13.04 x Ubuntu (Unity) 12.10 x Windows 8 My experiences
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 24, 2013
Ubuntu GNOME 13.04, my experiences
It's still a daily build, but yeah, very stable and working well. For me, Ubuntu GNOME rocks and I'm loving this work. Everything I wanted = the Ubuntu power + the GNOME3 amazing interface. Everything working flawlessy and blazing fast. I tested UGR 12.10 too, but 13.04 is way faster.
Still no bugs, very good graphics performance and all my apps are working. GNOME 3 is so easy and intuitive, fast and beautiful. You find what you search in seconds, Empathy and Evolution integration are perfect and non-intrusive.
Default icon pack is ok, native apps are fully optimized for GNOME 3 so it looks awesome. Chromium default theme doesn't look good, but with GNOME 3 theme for Chromium you'll get an unified design, beautiful like GNOME 3.
Ubuntu (Unity) 12.10, my experiences
Unity is beautiful, you can find everything with speed and no difficult. Works well but Ubuntu GNOME is faster, at least for me. Window organisation and Unity bar is fine,

Can't send out any mail in all my email clients
location: linux.com - date: April 23, 2010
The other day, my KlamAV anti virus program stated it had intercepted a virus in my evolution Mail program, which when I open to view my mail, the last received mail in the inbox, unopened was right after my anti virus scan. I have been online with Evolution techs, with no results or clues to the problem. After checking all the available mail clients installed, each of them can receive mail, but not one of them can send it out with my smtp account settings. The outgoing port is the same with all [ 25 ] this is showing in evolution, kmail, thunderbird, and a host of others I intentionally installed to test. Now, I have a virtual guess windows setup [ Vista, with outlook, and the mail functions are ok, both receive and send. Whatever my anti virus program detected, as I quarantined the results, nothing the hell works in relationship to sending mail. How can I reinstall the proper mail files needed in Linux, Ubuntu 9.10 or is there a repair feature on my cd or a diagnostic program I can
