    • Terminal for Remote-Desktop-Plugin

      Hello,

      i installed the remoto-desktop-plugin on my omv 3.16.0. The installation worked well and i can connect to the remote-desktop.

      But i am wondering that there ist no definition of a standard-terminal (Screenshot). Can you help me selecting a standard terminal? I have just a small linux-knowledge an dont know which programm i have to choose. Can you tell me the name of a installed terminal and the path to it, please?

      Thank you very much.

      Yours,
      Alexander

    • Install xterm with apt-get install xterm. I should probably just make that a dependency of the plugin. You will probably need to install a browser like iceweasel (renamed firefox) too.

    • I have read, that XFCE 4.10 have a problem with VNC (for example here)
      XFCE 4.12 solve this problem. Unfortunately Debian Jessie only comes with 4.10.
      A possible solution for me was, to use the Mepis Repository (MX Linux)

      Source Code

      1. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
      2. deb http://main.mepis-deb.org/mx/repo/ mx15 main
      3. wget http://teharris.net/mx14repo.asc
      4. su -c "apt-key add mx14repo.asc"
      5. apt-get update

    • Have you tried it to get this issue? I don't have it on my systems. I definitely wouldn't start adding repos to your systems and you definitely shouldn't add them to sources.list. Create a separate file or use omv-extras to add the repo/key.

    • I had problems with VNC with the Remote-Desktop-Plugin, it does not work proper.
      That's the reason, i was searching for solutions.
      I have used the way above and it works for me. Now i can use VNC without problems.

      Before that i have used the solution, mentioned in the first link:

      Source Code

      1. apt-get install -t testing xfce4
      That does not work good! Updates after that are mixed with stable and testing-updates.

      It is maybe a beginner-question: why should i not use the sources.list? It looks like that it is working. Why is omv-extras the better way?

      That is because the config the plugin creates doesn't create the entry for VNC. I created it so people would use remote desktop. Hence the name. Would have called it openmediavault-vncserver otherwise.

      Yep, that is why we tell people not to use other Debian version repos.

      While you can do it and it works, that is where the main debian repos go. the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder is where .list files for other repos are supposed to be placed.

      Yep it works. It would work in the correct directory as well. The idea of OMV is to not have to use the command line. Using omv-extras to add the repo and key eliminates the need to use the command line most of the time. It puts the repo in the proper file and adds the key for that repo so you don't have to.

      These are all just suggestions. You don't have to follow any of them...
