Question OpenSuse 11.4 VNC Howto


Hi There,

I am getting crazy of getting my RealVNC server to work. I have an license from work and installed x11vnc and VNC-E (which is realvnc enterprise).

First off all if I run the RealVNC Server (user-mode) from the application launcher it works, but first I need to kill x11vnc to get port 5900 free.
I want the RealVNC server to start automaticly on the start of my X session.

I created an Autostartscript in /home/<username>/.kde4/Autostart called x11vnc it contains the following data:
Code:
#! /bin/sh
x11vnc -rfbauth ~/.vnc/passwd -bg -rfbport 5900 -gui tray=minimal,iconfont=14x17 -forever -noxdamage &
this is why I need to kill x11vnc when running RealVNC server manually.

Problem is that I now have an x11vnc tray icon in stead of a realvnc tray icon.
Secondly It does not ask for any password, to get an password I did the following (in a terminal)
Code:
vncpasswd
Code:
x11vnc -usepasswd
Code:
x11vnc -usepw -display :0
next I restarted my opensuse box, but still no password...

If anyone knows where I did wrong, it would be a great help.

I just saw that the x11vnc icon had properties where I could enter a password and a view only password. I did this and rebooted my opensuse box, now I get an tray Icon error and still no password:

Code:
tail: cannot watch `/tmp/x11vnc.tray.qJoDsk': No such file or directory
tail: cannot watch `/tmp/x11vnc.tray.qJoDsk': No such file or directory
    while executing
"close $channel"
    (procedure "read_client_info" line 25)
    invoked from within
"read_client_info $client_tail"
    (procedure "read_client_tail" line 5)
    invoked from within
"read_client_tail"
Crazy

by the way I see that the command for the realvnc server is:

Code:
x0vncserver
I think this should become x11vnc? or am I seeing this wrong?

I have found the solution

I made a new Autostart file with the content:
Code:
#! /bin/sh
x0vncserver
Now my VNC server is starting.... :-)
