Using TeamViewer on Ubuntu Linux to manage other systems

TeamViewer provides software that will allow you to remotely control a system from another system. You can use it to remotely troubleshoot a system, share a desktop remotely, or transfer files between systems. The software runs on Android, iOS, Linux, OS X, Windows, Windows Phone, and Windows RT systems.

You don't have to install client software on a Linux system to use it as a remote management system to manage other systems. You can simply use a browser, such as Firefox, to connect to the remote system through the TeamViewer website. But installing the TeamViewer client software on a Linux system and using it will give you additional features not present in the browser-based method. E.g., you can adjust the screen resolution for the client's display of the remote desktop, take screen snapshots on the remote system, transfer files, etc.

ASCII Art

Before today's Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs), computer users were presented with an entirely text-based interface. Those old enough to remember those days may also remember ASCII art where artists constructed images entirely from the characters available to them via their keyboards, i.e., the 95 printable characters available from the 128 possible characters one could have using just 7 bits. The term "ASCII art" was used because the characters were defined by the ASCII Standard from 1963, a standard that on March 11, 1968 U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson mandated that all computers purchased by the U.S. government support.

An example of such art is the "smiling dragon" below.

For anyone nostalgic for the days when online art was text-based, textfiles.com has a subdomain, Art Scene where you can peruse some of the old ASCII art.

Some of the oldest examples of ASCII art were creations from the 1960's by Kenneth Knowlton, a computer graphics pioneer and artist who worked at Bell Labs.
