    i need an app that allows me to control the cursor on an ubuntu machine. there may have already been an post about this, but i cant search for it. many things in firefox arent working because i have a virtual machine running and it is busy. and i dont feel like stopping it. but back OT, i have an app that does this for my mac, but i am not finding on for linux mainly because i dont know what the search terms would be. anyone know of one that is available? or a hack that will get a win/mac one to work on linux?

    Just set up a VNC server on Ubuntu, then find a VNC client for iPhone.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC

    Just search the App store for 'VNC' to get a client.

    Hope it helps.


    Hmm, upon rereading, it seems you're looking for a trackpad type thing, yes? I don't know of any trackpad servers for Linux.

    no, you are missunderstanding. i have ubuntu as my host OS. i am running a Vista VM because i am formatting a microsd card. does that clear it up? i already have Jaadu VNC, and it works great, i just want an app that controls the mouse of linux machines so i can be lazier
