1 Hi all!
3 I'm looking for a solution to the following problem.
5 My relatives live 200 km away. They have a daughter, and I need to help
6 her out with school homework etc. At the moment we cannot do it on a
7 regular basis, because doing it over the phone is really difficult and
8 time consuming. I thought some screen sharing software would solve
9 this. A video conferencing or a VoIP feature would be a nice bonus,
10 too. For easy writing I would probably buy graphics tablets since
11 writing math formulas or drawing isn't particularly fast or easy with
12 keyboard and mouse.
14 So, is there some easy-to-use Linux program? I have Linux desktops on
15 both ends (Ubuntu and Gentoo), so portability or OS-independence is not
16 a requirement.
18 Do you have any other ideas? For the record, we have a 2 Mbit DSL line
19 on one end and a 6 Mbit on the other. Those are, of course, downstream
20 bandwidth rates.
23 Best wishes,
24 Renat
