VNC starts the whole X server, so it consumes more CPU cycles. X forwarding is always there, while you have to install VNC.Joe Schmoe wrote:With the caveat that it should, of course, "just work", I have to ask:
Is there any reason to go the "X forwarding" route, as opposed to going the VNC route?
The VNC route seems a lot cleaner and normal-er to me.
It would be most useful to say on which machine of mint 13 and the raspi you do this; it's not very clear from your post (don't assume it's obvious).Working from mint 13 to raspbian using putty. Under Connections--> X11 set "X display location" to localhost:0 . Test with xclock & to see if working.
Thanks! This is a nice solution for me!
