    Hey everyone. I have my old laptop set up as an ubuntu machine and I want to control it from my mbp. My only problem is that I cannot get the viewer to update on my mac side. I have them side by side while setting them up and I can see all the mouse clicks and keystrokes on my ubuntu machine but the mac side just stays the same. Its just stuck at whatever it was at when I connected to it. I've tried multiple viewers and they all have the same result. I tried chicken, jolly, screen sharing, and vncviewer. I used to remote connect to the same machine when it was a Win7 laptop and had no problems. I'm pretty sure I have the remote desktop on ubuntu set up correctly. I'm using the built in one in 10.04. Anyone have any suggestions? It connects fine so I'm not even sure which side is making this happen.
