dtlogin: -auth /var/dt/A:0-UgaaXa
The problem is, with Kubuntu (which uses kdm, the KDE Display Manager), the auth file is NOT located at /var/lib/kdm/A:*, like it says in the example, and it took me forever to locate the file.
In this case x11vnc also says:
Sometimes the command "ps wwwaux | grep auth" can reveal the file location.
which can be a handy way to find whereever the cookie file is being kept on an arbitrary distro.

This info should be printed closer to the dm list.
