ubuntu 12.10: remote desktop is not refreshing [solved]

When connecting to another computer using remote desktop or another vnc client (such as vncviewer available in xvnc4viewer package), initial screen is the remote computer screen but after that there is no screen refresh. Mouse is moving but screen is not refreshing.

Apparently this is caused by the nice visual effects of new ubuntu interface.

Solution

Disable these effects.

Ask remote user to do the following:

  1. logout
  2. In login screen, ensure username is selected/active
  3. Right next to username, click on icon
  4. Select “Gnome (no effects”)
  5. Enter password to log into the computer

That’s it.

Connect with vnc and everything should be fine by now!
