Trying to link up laptop to desktop using KRDC
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:32:44 am »
As the subject header says, I'm trying to link up two computers.
Desktop is Kubuntu 14.04 and Laptop is Kubuntu 16.04.
How do I connect one to the other. I have done some 'Googling' and not got far as the stuff I find talks about clicking a 'configure' button and then instructions after it, but I can't see anything like it, the instructions are all out of date.
Here are the sites I've been on...

Link how ? .. what are you trying to achieve ?

remote desktop, or just shared folders ?

Both really, so I can attend either one from the other and play video/edit files from the other.
