Vino! You wonderful thing!

I setup a Gnome desktop machine based on Gentoo on my dad’s spare laptop a couple of months back, to see if the centrino-based pile o' junk would work properly, and it did. (for the most part) One of the things that was included in the Gnome install was Vino, a program that helps with setting up remote desktop sharing of the desktop in use. I never knew what the program’s name was, and I couldn’t work out how to get it working on my two-year-old install of Gentoo, and I didn’t want to go to all the effort of reinstalling Gnome just to hope that the program would be installed at the same time. I was cruising newsforge as I do when I’m at work, and I found out what it’s called! Hooray!

Well, I don’t know what the point of this post is, but it’s probably good to remind myself of what the program’s called, so I can install it when I get home so I can use my desktop machine’s stuff from my laptop when I’m lying in bed being lazy 🙂
