    Did you install the AMD64 version of ubuntu? If so, I'm not sure what's up. But if you're running the x86 install on 64 bit architecture, all 32 bit packages will work on 64 bit processors assuming you've installed the x86 version of ubuntu.

    Im running Dapper for AMD64. I upgraged from Breezy for AMD64.
    Specifically, this is the kernel image im running now: 2.6.15-26-amd64-generic

    My question is, is there a problem installing xorg-common and all the other packages it says it needs, like xserver-common?

    Well I'm certainly no expert, but my opinion is that there is no problem getting the additional packages it needs. That being said, it's never a bad idea to backup certian files, such as your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, your /etc/network/interfaces, etc.

    I would go ahead and let them download and install. But it might not hurt to ask around some more or browse for similar issues on these forums.

    I got some errors trying to install xserver-common. One of them said it had been replaced by x11-common, which i already have on my system.
    So I ran dpkg again, with the option --ignore-depends=xserver-common. It ran flawlessly and now its working.

    Tnx for the how-to, paperdiesel!!

    Just for reference, I had a problem with myself getting a connection reset by peer.

    Following the above advice (adding my fonts path to the config) I was able to get things working smoothly!

    I get the following when running vncviewer localhost:1 on Kubuntu 6.10 64-bit, qfter forcing the dpkg files to install without deps.
    Code:
    VNC viewer for X version 4.0 - built Oct 19 2005 20:19:45

    Same if I try to connect to 192.168.1.100 (my PC) or when changing the number after teh colon to 0 or 15900 (my open VNC port, set as such in the setup file).

    Re: HOWTO: Set up VNC server with resumable sessions - KUBUNTU VERSION

    When I try to run vncviewer localhost:1 i get this
    ReadFromRFBServer: rdr::SystemException: read: Connection reset by peer (104)
    Any ideas?

    EDIT: Oh it sounds like the solution was posted earlier in the thread, sorry for not reading. For reference my fonts path with /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc

    Is it possible to setup VNC so that you can connect to display :0 ?

    Hi all
    I just install the vnc4server ubuntu official package for 64 on edgy (4.1.1+xorg1.0.2-0ubuntu1.6.10.1). And in order to make it work i just create a link with
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/share/fonts/X11/ /usr/share/X11/fonts
    Thanks for the tuto.
    I hope it will help
