VNC Failure with a LINUXMCE Core-Hybrird Configuration
« on: January 04, 2008, 05:39:37 am »
When I remove the S99kdm from /etc/init.d and use the original kdm.saved which runs the kdm daemon, I can launch vncviewer sessions without getting the Grey Screen problem.  In other words, if I setup the LINUXMCE system in "PC Only" mode the VNC client/server configuration works fine.  What must I do to have the LINUXMCE system start with Launch Manager at boot in Core-Hybrid mode and successfully launch VNC sessions.  I'm trying to follow the steps described at this site to have kdm listening at port 177 for VNC requests  newbielink:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=259448 [nonactive] but I only get a grey screen.

My family would  like the  LINUXMCE system to startup with its nice interface, and I want to work on the server in the background.

Thanks,
Dan ???

Personally, I'd simply ssh into the core, and work from the command line.. ;D ;D

I know that's not what you were looking for.. You want KDE to start up with lmce, and vnc into kde, right?

The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.
My other computer is your windows box.
I'm out of my mind.  Back in 5 minutes.
Q:  What's Red and smells like blue paint?

A:  Red Paint.

I personally like NX server works great on my 0704 non dedicated setup
 Have not tried it yet with my 0710 beta setup yet.

>ddamron-You want KDE to start up with lmce, and vnc into kde, right?
 Yes, I found that I can do this using the RFB protocol via "KDE Desktop Sharing" which is compatible with all regular VNC / RFB clients.  The only problem with this, is it requires me to select the "KDE Destkop" from within the LINUXMCE menu-ing, disrupting folks watching MythTV.  As well, I have to setup a "personal invitation" to launch a session.  And this takes the "LocalHost:0" console.

If the KDE Desktop Sharing works, there should be a way I can launch a remote VNC session on a separate display:# which allows me to free up MythTV, no?
