    Mythbuntu: how to start a VNC server at login?

    In mythbuntu 12.04, how do I start a (x11VNC) VNC-server at the log in prompt?

    If I ssh to the machine I can run:
    Code:
    sudo x11vnc –display :0 –auth /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority
    to manually start the VNC-server, but how do I do it automatically in Mythbuntu 12.04 using a session password?

    Nope. That setting is only installing x11vnc server. You have to manually start x11vnc after logging in.
