x11vnc for 13.1 (SlackBuilds.org)
 
Hi!

Ive been using Slackware64 13.0 and used to ssh onto my machine from remote and start x11vnc to get graphical access from time to time.

Today I installed Slackware64 13.1 onto a second partition, to test it and see if I can get everything to work and I must say Slackware64 13.1 is really good work, excellent!

One thing though:
I used to install x11vnc from Slackbuilds.org. Unfortunately there is no x11vnc for 13.1. I installed the 13.0 version but I cant start it, it doesnt exist after installing (compilig without any errors) - so I removed the pkg and installed it again. No luck.

Is there any possibility to install x11vnc apart from waiting till Slackbuilds.org 13.1 version is out?

Thank you very much for any replies in advance!

Greetings.

//edit: or maybe someone can suggest any other vncserver?

If you're using kde then krfb comes with stock slackware and is worth a try.

krfb works fine, but I need to start the vnc-server through ssh. I dont want to have it running permanently, for Security reasons.
This is what I normally do:
wake my machine on WAN.
login through ssh
startx
start x11vnc
start the vncviewer.
shutdown.

upto now I only know bout x11vnc.


//edit: the real question is: why wouldnt it be installed?

It's very easy to install x11vnc from source.

Download source from author's website, change into /home/user/build and extract.

Code:

tar -xzvf x11vnc-0.9.10.tar.gz
Change into x11vnc-0.9.10 directory:

Code:

cd x11vnc-0.9.10
As normal user:

Code:

./configure
Code:

make
As root:

Code:

make install
This installs x11vnc to /usr/local. The binary is in /usr/local/bin.

Thank you all very much. I managed to compile it from source and it works expectedly.

Greetings.
