Do read the README for instructions on setting it up: the checks in autotools for required programs are by no means perfect yet.
How this is different from X forwarding:
- Most importantly, because it works (or will soon work) over Telepathy tubes, so you can share windows with your chat contacts.
- Less importantly, it uses VNC so that it's platform-independent. There is only an X implementation at the moment, but eventually I'm hoping there'll be Windows and OS X implementations as well.
- I have proposed a talk on xzibit at LCA in January. I don't yet know whether it will be accepted.
- The protocol is explained here, and you can see a diagram explanation here.
You may clone the git repository from here.
I'm now working on 0.02, which will have proper working Telepathy support.
