I am a true nuewbie here, and really could use some advice. I am using elive linux, and just downlaoded RealVNC and trying to get it installed. I downloaded the tar.gz file, and ran the tar -xvzf command and created the new folder. This is where I am stuck.
1. What am I suppoed to do from here - the readme file gave some instructions but it was unclear.
2. I find I am having problems changing the dirctory to the new folder. In the terminal, I cd /home/sam and can see the new folder - VNC, but when I do a cd /vnc it says that it does not exixt, but I can see it and access the files in the File Manager.
I have also read that I needed to be in root to do this? In elive, when I go to root I cannot find the terminal anywhere.
Can someone help me? This is the first package I am trying to install. I also used synaptic and installed the VNC package, and it says it was successful, but how to I launch VNC? I use listening mode, server and viewer, but don't understand how to do this in Linux. You help is greatly appreciated.
