    real vnc


    I installed real vnc on my computer and it was an rpm installation and it said installation finished. I dont know where to find the program to run it. In windows, you would have it under programs, here, I cant find it anywhere. Can anyone please help me with this?

    Thanks

    try going 'start' (mandrake equivilant...whatever) > 'run command'

    then type like.. 'realvnc' or 'vnc' in that command line. Then click 'run'

    Well go to a console and type vn or reand then tab to fill out, see if that gives you any clues. After that, if you have no joy try this -
    Code:
    sudo updatedb
    ###<enter root password when prompted>
    locate vnc
    You will be interested in a file in your $PATH, i.e in /usr/bin or ~/bin. The updatedb command may take a while, but locate is an excellent tool. I use it all the time. At least I did...Beagle has given me something else to play with
