[GRASS-user] Running Grass Remotely

If you would like to grab the session on your monitor display, there
is the x11vnc package which will get that session.

Alternatively to getting the session active on the monitor, is using
virtual sessions.  I have used vnc4sever, but with the newer versions
of KDE and desktop, it had a lot of artifacts and hard to read the
display.  I moved over to NX Machine, http://www.nomachine.com/.
There is also an open source equivalent FreeNX
(http://freenx.berlios.de/) in Ubuntu repositories.  The one by
nomachine allows max of two connections I believe, where the freeNX
does not have that limitation.

hope that helps.
