here at my workplace we have a 60" tv that's used for monitoring stuff. A laptop PC is connected to it at all times. I have experimented with replacing this laptop with a Raspberry PI unit. But it's not working out like I'm wanting it to; no doubt because of my lack of experience with the platform.
I've installed a tightvnc-server into the raspberry pi, and ensured it starts up automatically when the unit is powered on. That works ok. But - when I log into the server, I'm getting a 'local session', so to speak, where I was aiming to 'take over' the device, and be able to work with the default desktop on the 60" screen, and, for example, open browser windows for everyone in the room to follow.
Can anyone suggest a way of doing this via tightvnc or a different remote-control application?
Many thanks in advance.
