Thread: Trouble Running VNC Server
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
So I have an update...for the one person actually watching this thread...
So I started a new X server on display 1, then launched x11vnc.
Then I set the DISPLAY var to display 1 (value of :1.0) and started the OpenGL application. As expected, the OpenGL application started, and the debug info I have in the beginning printed out, etc., but obviously I could not see it (as I'm looking at 0).
I connect to the X11 server on display 1, and get a black screen on the VNC client. This is to be expected since there's nothing running on that server.
BUT, even when I start the OpenGL application on that display, I do NOT see it on the VNC client. I see a regular black desktop with the standard X cursor. Why isn't the window visible there? There's no errors reported anywhere in the process. I'm thinking because there may not be a window manager that is willing to run a window on display 1 but A) I've seen it run stuff on display 1 to see via VNC on there, and B) I would expect an error in trying to open the window there.
Anybody have any thoughts...I hate the way I can't find any info about this and nobody knows . Where can I find some X experts??
