This seems to be what I was looking for but I run into the same problem as when using the Gnome built in desktop sharing. When I use VNC to connect to the computer I don't get a full use of my keyboards char set.

When using a keyboard plugged into the computer I can type ÞÆÐÁÖ etc. as well as keys that require AltGr to be pressed @€[]{}. This is a icelandic keyboard btw.

When using vncserver to start a session I get full use of these keys as well, but I want to connect to the existing screen session so not much use there.

So when connecting to the existing Gnome session via VNC there is something lost in translation.

Any suggestions?

This works, but seems really, really slow for redrawing. And I've yet to add ssh. :(

I've been using xf4vnc for this kind of stuff. It's very fast and runs with Xorg just fine.
