Fix screen sharing when running Ubuntu GNOME

Screen sharing under Ubuntu GNOME is handled by a package called vino. However when enabling screen sharing via gnome-control-center sharing panel, it fails to start the vino daemon.

Skills required for this task are basic packaging and C coding.

Your task is to fix the launching of the vino-server daemon. The resulting patch must also be compatible with Unity, since the current behaviour does work there.
