VNC fixed font file


Hi people

I am unable to get the vnc server to run

my setup is

dual cpu HP LH3 server with 512MB Ram
software is slackware 10.0
default desktop is KDE which runs fine

I have tried the following
edited the vncserver script to have the following options

$cmd .= " -fc /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/charBI08.pcf";
$cmd .= " -fn /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/charBI08.pcf";
$cmd .= " -fp /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/,/usr/x11r6/lib/x11/75dpi/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/";

I have also put this in a vnc.conf file in the etc directory

I have also uncompressed the fonts and and ran mkfontdir in each directory

I downloaded and built the vnc on the server and had no errors its not from a package

after all the messing around and getting rid of a few errors i still have the following in my log file

Xvnc version 4.0 - built Jun 14 2004 12:01:28
Underlying X server release 40201000, The XFree86 Project, Inc

I have a Slackware VNC package which is basically a re-packaged binary downloaded from realvnc.com with a little editing in the vncserver file.
It works like a charm for me. You could try it out, and report back any findings.
