    VNC startup error


    I'm trying to start a VNC server. Part of the problem is that I'm not really sure what I'm doing. When I try to start, I get:

    Couldn't start Xvnc; trying default font path.
    Please set correct fontPath in the vncserver script.

    However, it starts and I can connect with a viewer, though there doesn't seem to be any http responce.

    I'm not really sure what the font path should be. I'm using a default install of Slackware 10.0.

    And, does the VNC viewier work for KDE sessions, and if so, how do I get it to work with one?

    Wait? Http response? VNC isn't http based afaik. And yes VNC can be used with KDE, i suggest you read the documentation which came with your installation of VNC.

    The docs don't really say much at all, let alone how to get it to work with VNC.
