I bought an LCD, connected it to my gnu/linux computer. Now I had my LCD ready. However when working in the office, I had to use a CRT because my main machine has a CRT. I started looking around to see if 'Remote desktop' is available for gnu/linux.
After a little bit of searching I found the rdp protocol. Windows XP has something that uses this "Remote Desktop Connection". A little more searching brought me to rdesktop. You can install it on Debian by 'apt-get install rdesktop'.
Man pages for rdesktop revealed the commandline arguments. I use the following command:
desktop -f -u drwho -a 24 10.0.x.xxx -r sound:off
I have to provide the -r sound:off switch because of some problem with the sound. If I try to play a sound file from my rdesktop (winamp->play), I get some ridiculous DirectSound error.
What this means is that I have to have my headphones connected to the windows machine.
Now I can use my LCD and still do the development.
There seems to be a lag with the keys (key repeats). Will try to figure it out.
