Vnc kde4


This is a screenshot from KDE4's built in VNC server... nice.

Which version of KDE4.

Is that the Krfb, Desktop Sharing. If so, how did you get it to work. All I can get is an initial screen, which looks great, but it never updates.

If not, then what did you use.

Cheers.

Yes, its krfb.
Version: KDE 4.2.3
I didn't do anything to get it to work... just ran krfb.

Wow. So... when is KDE4 going to be out of beta?

KDE4 is not in beta. It is in production. It may need some getting used to when you are currently using KDE3, but IMHO definitely worth the transition.
Slackware 13.0 will have KDE4.

Has anyone tried NX?

I have NX packages for Slackware 12.2 and for slackware64-current. I use NX (with the FreeNX Server) almost daily.

other alternatives include X11rdp or tighVNC, not to mention the xrdp wrapper server.

I've used NX (the non-free version), and it works well.

The "Free For Life" version, of NX, works well. Install it via RPMs, and when it complains about not knowing the distro, use RedHat.

Cheers.

I've been using realvnc (free version) a little. Do you like tightvnc better? Neither offer encryption I don't think. Not a big deal though since I usually tunnel through ssh.

Tried to get NX up in the "lets skim through the documents quickly and get it running in 5 minutes" way, but I'll have to come back to it when I have more time later.

I've never used realvnc on Linux. tightVNC works for me, and I do use ssh tunneling as well when needed. On Windows I liked UltraVNC.

NX is easy to install, but I seem to remember that the uninstall script did not remove everything, but it was easy to clean up manually.
