[SOLVED] Ubuntu - VNC loads but does not refresh.

I am playing with UltraVNC from Windows 7 to Ubuntu. To resolve the problem with VNC refresh we should turn off all visual effects.


right click on the desktop, select "Change Desktop Background", click
"Visual Effects", click the "none" option

  1. Yes...I have been looking around for a solution to this problem and you found the solution. I had made so many changes to the settings and option on ubuntu and windows and this 'no visual effects option' saved my day....thanks

  2. There is no option "no visual effects" on Ubuntu 13.10.
