[SOLVED] ssh x11vnc ubuntu 10.04
it has been a while since i have set up ssh/vnc/ubuntu 10.04 ssh is working fine what i did was
sudo apt-get install x11vnc
i start the ssh connection to the computer with the server like this
ssh -L5900xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5900 firstname.lastname@example.org
then once logged into the ssh server i start the x11vnc server like this
sudo x11vnc -xkb -ncache 10 -display :0 -usepw -q
then i get the standard 8 -10 paragraphs of it failed then some possible causes so i installed the standard xorg.conf files i have that i have used many times before and it still failed i changed the driver from vesa to fbdev cause that is what fail safe x server uses to fall back on still the same thing.
