No cursor seen in VNC viewers when connecting to TigerVNC server


Hello, everyone.
I start x0vncserver like that:
Code:
x0vncserver --PasswordFile=~/.vnc/passwd
But clients that are connected to me cannot see the cursor on my desktop.
I have tried to play with options in clients (Vinagre and TigerVNC viewer) and server with no luck.

P.S. I cannot use standart Vino server because of its poor performance with Gnome3.
P.P.S. My system is Fedora 15

not a networking question. Moved to Linux - Newbie.

btw, VNC is horrible. I'd *very* strongly suggest looking at NX instead. Also integrates well into the default remmina client (which is better than vinagre)

Thanks for a suggestion.

My goal is simple:
1) I start the server.
2) Clients connect to me. They can see my desktop, i.e. they connect to an existing X session on my computer.
3) Both clients and me can use mouse and keyboard to interact with my desktop.

Can I reach my goal with FreeNX? Links to the tutorials and manuals are very welcome.

ok, how about a simpler goal, where you don't even start a server in the first place?

I said NX, not FreeNX. for up to 2 connections you can use the PROPER NX server, which has a much friendlier and nicer user experience. nomachine.org
