vino crashed/stopped working, restart vino manually without rebooting

The normal solution would be as follows:

export DISPLAY=:0.0

/usr/lib/vino/vino-server &

But what happens if that doesn't work?  I haven't been able to find much documentation about how to find the list of displays and how their numbering works in Xorg.

Sometimes you'll get this error when trying to restart vino:

Cannot open display:

For some reason my display is not on 0.0, maybe it's because I restarted X a few times:

View a list of all X displays:

ls /tmp/.X*-lock

/tmp/.X10-lock  /tmp/.X11-lock  /tmp/.X12-lock  /tmp/.X13-lock  /tmp/.X14-lock  /tmp/.X15-lock  /tmp/.X1-lock  /tmp/.X2-lock  /tmp/.X3-lock  /tmp/.X4-lock

I exported each one manually and restarted vino-server until I found that mine was 4.0 (if you use X2 or X4 lock) then you need to pass it as 2.0 or 4.0 or X10 is 1.0 etc...

export DISPLAY=:4.0

/usr/lib/vino/vino-server&
