I need to enable remote connections to a machine that's running Linux Mint 13 Maya. I understand from tutorials like this one that Remote Desktop ought to be one of the options in my Preferences menu, but it isn't. It's also missing from Control Center. What should I do?

If there is a "Desktop Sharing" option try that. If not, first try and run the desktop sharing manager (vino) manually. Open a terminal and type:

vino-preferences

After you hit enter, the desktop sharing options should appear. If they do not, or you get an error message, you may need to install vino:

sudo apt-get install vino

Thanks! There was no "Desktop Sharing" option, but I was able to run vino manually. I'll report back after trying a remote login. –  Tommy Herbert Dec 11 '12 at 15:39
