I use VNC and also sit locally at my computer. If I’ve started LibreOffice locally, any document I open in VNC opens locally, invisible to me in VNC. And likewise, if I’ve left any docs open in VNC, when I return home and open a document, it opens in the VNC window and I have to log in, close all open docs, then restart VNC again.
Is there a way to have the same user (I’m running Linux) open two separate instances of LibreOffice or force it to display a window on a particular display? My VNC is at :3.0 and my localhost is :0.0. I’ve successfully done this with some programs using the --display parameter but this doesn’t work for LibreOffice.
It’s a very frustrating limitation. Especially since when I’m working remotely, the only way to get LibreOffice to run on the VNC terminal is to kill it, causing any work or open documents to risk being unsaved. They usually are safely “Recovered” but still…it just seems silly to have it not spawn a separate process in whichever display is being used.
Any thoughts or work-arounds would be fantastic.
