You can install Teamviewer in text only mode – yes it will show the console on the remote connection! You need to assign it to your Teamviewer account in this case as there is no way for it to show you a password… It works fine in graphical mode too of course.
If you try to download and install Teamviewer on a 64bit aarm64 distribution, it will show you lot’s of dependencies that can’t be satisfied because of the missing armhf architecture. But don’t fear, we can install them easily by just adding the architecture, similar to x64 and x86 based systems.
It’s really easy with the MDA option from fetchmail. I’m on ubuntu-18.04 but it works with similar versions and debian too. Make sure your version of fetchmail supports the MDA config option!
I will not cover how to install and configure spamassassin here, we assume it’s installed and has a basic working setup. Same for fetchmail of course. You can run fetchmail as a system service, call it from cron, have global or per user config, the only “magic” is to add the mda option like this to call spamassassin and have it deliver the mail locally afterwards:
poll mail.server.tld with proto whatever user remoteuser there with password "s3cr3t4ndS3cur3" is localuser here use ssl and fetchallmda "/usr/bin/spamc -f -e /usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -f %F %T"
As you can see, keep whatever your poll line looks like, just add the MDA option in the end like the example shows. It assumes your MTA comes with a sendmail compatible wrapper (most do, certainly postfix does).
After having installed the new Trusty 14.04 LTS release – finally, I came across a problem that showed to be caused by the “new” default security setting of Gnome Vino. I was no longer able to connect to the console through XRDP:
Fix is simple:
user@localhost:~$ gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false
Of course you need to enable desktop sharing, allow other users to view your desktop and require the user to enter a password when connecting in the preferences, like before.
After that, login again and you are able to connect to the console via XRDP again.
