Thank you to the person who recommended x11vnc; I installed that, and it's working swimmingly... provided I start it manually on the linux box each time I want to use it. Not so good if the idea is to have it start automatically when the user logs in. And when I place the script- or any script, for that matter- in the .kde/Autostart directory, all I get is the text editor Kate opening the file. And, yes, I was sure to run chmod +x on the file when I put it in the directory. This is the same thing which happens on my home PC, too: scripts placed in the Autostart directory are opened as text files, even if I chmod +x them.
Second issue: autologin. I set the account to automatically log in, but it does not do so. Has anyone else had success configuring Kubuntu 8.1 to do this?

This, too, shall pass.
