just wondering if anybody else found a solution to this problem? I tried installing the vncfix with:
rpm -ivh --nodeps --force libqt3-common-3.1.1-14tex.i586.rpm

and I'm still only getting a blank desktop with konsole.

my log says:
*** kdesktop (12152) got signal 11
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":1.0".
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding

over and over...

any ideas? fixes? solutions?

I'm running Mandrake 9.1 with KDE 3.1
My xstartup is:


[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
startkde &

Well if you only issued the command "rpm -ivh --nodeps --force libqt3-common-3.1.1-14tex.i586.rpm" then you've only install the libqt3-common you still need to install libqt3 with
rpm -ivh --nodeps --force libqt3-3.1.1-14tex.i586.rpm

once you've done that if it still doesn't work get the 3.1.2 version of the files.

You can get them here

get libqt3-common-3.1.2-9.1tex.i586.rpm and libqt3-3.1.2-9.1tex.i586.rpm

You must install both packages you can do this with one command or two.

rpm -ivh --nodeps --force libqt3-common-3.1.2-9.1tex.i586.rpm libqt3-3.1.2-9.1tex.i586.rpm

Notice the last two arguments are both files to be installed. You could also install them one at a time.

I forgot something. After installing the packages I also had to modify the xstartup script in your $HOME/.vnc directory. Mine looks like this


# Mandrake Linux VNC session startup script
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
#xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
exec startkde &

There is an even better solution.

Go to

and download the binary Xvnc- ...

replace /usr/bin/Xvnc with this new binary. It has both GLX and RENDER extensions built in!!

KDE 3.X works fine for me now on Mandrake 9.1 over VNC
