I'm trying to use the remote desktop. I can connect fine to the other 
computer, but then I can't do anything. I can see the screensaver of the 
remote machine. But the mouse and keyboard don't work. Are they supposed to 
work? The documentation seems to be broken, both that which comes with Suse 
9.1 and also what is on the website. I was hoping to find some magic 
incantation that transfers control to my mouse, or some such thing, but when 
I get to the page in the docs called "Controlling the Remote Desktop 
Connection", the link is broken in all versions of the docs that I can find, 
online or otherwise. Also there seems to be an indication that this is based 
on VNC, so I went to their website. Didn't find any docs there either on how 
to use it!!
