View Full Version : [ubuntu] VNC xvnc4viewer

June 29th, 2011, 05:32 PM

Installed xvnc4viewer, after looking thru forum - was unable to get keyboard to work with vncviewer, and it kept hanging.

However, keyboard still wont work - have disabled compiz effects on client and server.

Any help appreciated. Karl

Try checking off the xdamage option in the machine you are trying to connect to.

Press the ALT + F2 keys and type


Navigate to desktop > gnome > remote_access > disable_xdamage and tick the box. Close out and reboot, then try VNC again ?

If it doesn't work, then easy enough to reverse and uncheck.
