X-options arguments to Xvnc(1) for vncserver(1) program
 
Hi to all,

Well, I want up VNC server with 'vncserver -dpi 150 -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf' on Slackware 14.

"-dpi 150 -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf" is X-options.

output of error:

# vncserver -dpi 150 -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Couldn't start Xvnc; trying default font path.
Please set correct fontPath in the vncserver script.
Couldn't start Xvnc process.

How is the correct sintax of X-options for vncserver(1) program ?

Thanks, see you.

As you see -config option is not recognized by xvncserver. You need to specify paths to fonts. You can use orginal "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" by writing there something like:
Code:

Section "Files"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"
EndSection

Or with newer versions you can create file "/etc/vnc.conf" or "~/.vncrc" like
Code:

$fontPath = "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc,/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1,/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi";
Check what fonts you have or install some.

I do not mean to hijack this thread - but I have a rather related problem:
1: we have an application that makes use of :0.0,:0.1 ... :0.3
2: we do not want to startx (as such), but to use vncserver instead (the machine might well be headless)
3: as far as I know (and I might well be wrong), Xvnc does not read xorg.conf (where the additional displays are defined)

So, my question is: How to let Xvnc know that I want 4 screens on the particular display-node ':0' ??
