As VNC is currently topical, can anyone tell me how to connect to the second desktop running as a separate X window, (two separate 
screens, Screen 0 and Screen 1) using VNC on mythbuntu 9.10?  One is mainly used for mythtv (distant TV) and the second for the 
desktop on a much closer monitor.  VNC just connects to the close desktop and there seems no option to get onto the second one?

It depends how you have VNC set up, but usually it's a matter of connecting to "host:0" (which is also the default if you just use 
"host") and "host:1".


The client I am using is on XP using client 4.1.3, which may explain why there is no option to select the various hosts?  Perhaps it 
is an intended limitation of the free version?
