Enable Remote Desktop on Ubuntu from command line

3 08 2008

On some of the workstations i happen to use, at times it’s neccessary to have Remote Desktop enabled.
Here’s a quick and dirty way to turn it on and off.

sudo gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/remote_access/enabled true

To disable it set it to false.

In a similar way you can enable disable the confirmation request:

gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/remote_access/prompt_enabled false
