Question tightvnc and slackware


Hello, folks!
I want to configure my tightvnc server installation to use my already running X session (on current :0 screen), but as i understand its not really and its working only at another screen. How can I configure to use it on my current screen?

With tightvnc that will not be possible.
But if you use my tigervnc package instead (http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/tigervnc/) you can use the included x0vncserver to export your already running X session.

Remove tightvnc, install tigervnc. Then, set a password and start the x0vncserver like this:
Code:
vncpasswd
x0vncserver PasswordFile=~/.vnc/passwd
From another computer you can now start a vncviewer and connect to "yourcomputer":
Code:
vncviewer yourcomputer:0
The password that you just configured is the password that has to be entered in the vncviewer.

Thanks Eric! Another one question: how to automatically starting this service with X server?
