x2vnc allows the console (keyboard and mouse) on an X terminal to be used to control another console running a VNC server. It also provides ancillary functions like clipboard sharing.

The software was developed in 1998 by Fredrik Hubinette, based on source code from x2x and VNC.

Problems Using x2vnc With Windows 10

Windows 10 has a feature, turned on by default, where moving the mouse over the "show desktop button" in the taskbar turns on "Desktop Peek" which shows the desktop every time the mouse moves over that button.

x2vnc by default moves the mouse to the lower right corner when the remote user moves their mouse away from the target Windows desktop.

This is over that button on a default taskbar layout, which makes the windows on the screen be hidden every time, which is annoying.

Known solutions

1. To get around this, you can disable the "Desktop Peek" in the settings for the Taskbar.

2. There is also a modified version of x2vnc which has options to get around this problem.
