    I just downloaded Jaadu VNC for my touch earlier today. I'm using Linux Mint 7 on my computer (an improved derivative of Ubuntu), so I can't use the official Jaadu Connect software. Instead, I just used the built-in remote desktop utility to set up a basic VNC server.

    Jaadu connects quickly to my computer over home wi-fi, and displays my desktop with no trouble. I can move the cursor around, click on things, enter text, et all from my iPod, but here's the trouble: my iPod screen does not update as I do these things. If I'm watching my acutal computer monitor at the time, I can see it working, but my iPod for whatever reason does not update.

    To use Jaadu when I'm not staring at my screen, I have to click something, then actually disconnect and re-connect to view an updated desktop - and on and on and on, making it so time-consuming as to be virtually unusable. I have the refresh rate set to "fastest" and everything. Does anyone have any tips for me?

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt
