Install VNC for Raspberry PI

                Refer my previous posts, though you use Xming. I personally recommend to use VNC. VNC(Virtual Network Computing) is a graphical desktop sharing system that allows you to remotely control the desktop interface of one computer from another. It transmits the Keyboard and the mouse events from the controller, and receives updates to the screen over the network from the remote host.

Step 1:

- On your raspberry pi, install TightVNC package:

$ sudo apt-get install tightvncserver

vnc server raspberry pi

$ tightvncserver

- next, run TightVNC Server which will prompt you to enter a password and an optional view-only password.

-start VNC server from the terminal. e.g.:

$ vncserver :1


- On your computer install VNC client.
VNC on mac looks like this. The entire desktop of pi is seen on Mac.
