I've been using Ubuntu 12.04 for around 8 months, but I have a question that probably a "newbie" should be asking. I'm unable to find the "remote desktop" icon that is generally accessible from Systems-> Preferences. The following link mentions the "remote desktop" icon. (I know the link talks about ubuntu 7.1, but the feature should be there in Ubuntu 12.04 as well.
I need the remote desktop feature to enable others (in other networks) to view my desktop.
Any help would be welcome!
Thanks in advance!

If you need to install it type: sudo apt-get install -y rdesktop-vrdp
