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!
//edit: or maybe someone can suggest any other vncserver?
It's very easy to install x11vnc from source.
Download source from author's website, change into /home/user/build and extract.
tar -xzvf x11vnc-0.9.10.tar.gz
Change into x11vnc-0.9.10 directory:
As normal user:
This installs x11vnc to /usr/local. The binary is in /usr/local/bin.
