    Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions

    The localhost:1 works now poppi! As for the remote desktop VNC... all goes well for a split second and then the windows begin to pop up infinitely. Here's a screenshot to explain.

    Any help is MUCH appreciated, thanks!

    First of all Dethecus, thank you for this!

    I do have problems though. If I do vncviewer localhost:1 I dont get a GDM login window, just a blank screen with some checkboxes.

    EDIT: FIXED. Followed the instructions here.

    Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions

    When I do the last command in part 2 of the tutorial "vncviewer localhost:1" I didnt have vncviewer. So I managed to figure that out and got it. After that when I type in the command I get...

    Hi guys, I'm getting the same issue, I followed the newer guide in post 458 but I'm still getting this

    Code:

    Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions

    I followed popie's instructions and it seems to work, However, when I try to connect from my laptop I get this error message from VNC viewer: "Error: couldn't find suitable pixmap format". How can I solve the problem?

    Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions

    I followed popie's instructions, everything went well until i rebooted and nothing had changed. I still can't vnc unless i log in the physical desktop, and then it only controls the physical desktop... Am I connecting wrong?

    I really hate this side of Ubuntu.. So far i am unsuccessful at installing a vnc server.. This definitely needs to be address by the ubuntu admins in their documentation.

    As far as getting the VNC server running, that is as simple as clicking in GNOME System>Preferences>Remote Desktop, then clicking Allow users to view your desktop, and Allow users to control your desktop under General Tab subsection Sharing.

    Getting VNC to work independently of sessions on the physical display, is another issue, apparently.

    Question Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions

    Hello everyone, i am trying to get my laptop to run the vnc4server on Kubuntu 8.10; which as you may know uses KDE 4.1.3.

    I followed the instructions exactly as described on post #458 of this thread and Im having the same type of problem as many other people have posted in this thread and in other forums:

    Code:
    diego@raziel:~$ vncviewer localhost:1
    Connected to RFB server, using protocol version 3.8
    vncviewer: read: Connection reset by peer
    To which my /var/log/syslog says:

    Code:
    Nov 11 21:09:35 raziel xinetd[15191]: warning: can't get client address: Transport endpoint is not connected
    I made the following configurations in /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc:

    Code:
    [Xdmcp]
    Enable=true
    Port=177
    Xaccess=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xaccess
    Willing=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xwilling
    Is there anything new that i should take into account for 8.10? Did the vnc4server get any significant changes between last release and now?

    Thanks in advance.


    Edit: Fixed the problem, had to edit /etc/kde4/kdm/Xaccess like this:

    Code:
    *                                       #any host can get a login window
    *               CHOOSER BROADCAST       #any indirect host can get a chooser
    Now it works great! Thanks to the howto posters....
