Re: [PLUG] Shared desktop on lxde

NX free versions have not been kept up to date and might not be a good choice anymore. NoMachine used to provide a free version but no longer does. I'm told by my colleagues that it also changed in ways that they did not like and could no longer use*, so peruse the features well and make sure it does what you want.  It used to be very nice, in particular very speedy. 

*I forget details. But we used to use it for standalone remote detachable sessions. Now I have the impression it *only* works as a screen-sharing mechanism. I could be wrong.
