Is this doable this way? Thanks for helping alan -=o=-If I have decoded "how to turn console into the remote desktop" correctly, then you would need NX/freenx and log onto the remote system as root (where the "Push new icons..." are located). You could *try* something like this(assuming KDE for the moment): ssh -X -l root remotemachine '/usr/bin/startkde'But I don't think you would like the result. NX is more efficient, you cansuspend sessions etc. NX/freenx would be the right tool.
That, or VNC if bandwidth isn't much of an issue (VNC is less work to setup). No SSH needed, that's why I was confused. Of course you can also just add users from a regular SSH shell, but I take it you're not very comfortable using the command line? It is much faster than any remote desktop method. :o)
