VNC for KDE?


I'm lloking for a VNC viewer/client for KDE. I've found Keystone, but that doesn't seem to have seen development for at least 3 years. I'm having problems with vncviewer and xvncviewer (I think that they
are the same program). When I start it from the command line I get a
very small window that says "VNC Server:" and there I suppose that I
am to enter the foriegn address, such as "12.34.56.78:1234", which I
do. There is no OK button, so I simply press Enter on the keyboard.
After a few seconds I get a windows that says "Server Dialog" in the
title bar, with a small textbox and nothing else. I tryed entering my
password into there and pressed Enter, but that did nothing.

So, how can I either use [x]vncviewer, or install somethign else?

Thanks.

Are you sure the server connecting to is configured correctly. This does not sound like a viewer problem.

I use xtightvncviewer because it small and very lightweight. Also I can easily call it with an argument in to an address, like this:

xtightvncviewer 127.0.0.1:4

There is also an xtightvncserver, which is the server. There is another VNC client for KDE, but I cannot seem to find it or what its name is....

The server that I'm connecting to is Browsercam, and I can connect with kdrc. However, kdrc is _slow_. I'd actually like to use TighVNC as I've used itin the past, but I can't get it to install on this kubuntu system. The tarball doesn't seems to include a configure script, but there's no executables in there either. How is TightVNC installed?

Yeah, I remember KDRC. It is not fast. I am not sure it makes use of the tight-vnc protocol advantages. Anyway, in Kubuntu/Ubuntu you can just install it with apt. I am not sure how if you are using adept, synaptic, or the apt system on the console. The server package is called 'tightvncserver' and the client for tight-vnc is 'xtightvncviewer'. You want to find and install those packages. From a console you can just do this:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tightvncserver xtightvncviewer
That should install both of the programs for you. Then you can create vnc sessions with the server and connect to ones with the viewer. The viewer has a graphical interface, but the server does not it seems. But you can create a vnc-session like this on the console:

Code:
# To create a session
tightvncserver :1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16

# To kill a session
tightvncserver -kill :1
