vncviewer


Hi guys,

i finally got my vncserver and vncviewer to run ! . was a journey full of learning !

My vncserver is running on windows xp home and i use vncviewer from suse to control my windows desktop.

now i have a question...

when i run vncviewer the viewer window takes over my whole screen and still there are srollbars in it (my windows has 1024x768 and the linux laptop is old ... has low resolution).

to solve the window size problem i typed

Code:
vncviewer -geometry 400x400 [server ip]:5900
this made the window smaller but i still have scrollbars .. and i hate scrolling !!!

is there any way to let the viewer window size be at 400x400 and also to compress the 1024x768 image from the windows desktop so that it fits the 400x400 window so that there are no scrollbars ...

basically i want to see the whole of windows desktop in 400x400 window on my laptop .... i dont care about distortion of the image.

any help would be appreciated. thanks

i've not found a linux vnc viewer that performs image scaling. a number do support it under windows. I'd suggest poking around a bit for various forked viewers. i saw xf4vnc which is a fork of tightvnc and i don't know for sure that either doesn't support scaling. i have realvnc installed on my kit, and i know that that doesn't support it.
