vnc questions

This might be an easy one but here goes. I installed vncviewer/server from the projects page onto my QNX 6.2 computer, it was working. Then the next time I logged on all I get when trying to run from command line is “command not found” for either server or viewer.I’m not sure what else I need to do, thanks in advance for any help.

Find out where the command is and make sure that the directory which contains it is in your $PATH environment variable, also make sure that it is executable by your user, and not just root (assuming you don’t run it as root).

Thanks, I got the viewer and server to run from command line again. The viewer works,I was able to vnc into a windows box running server, however I have not been able to vnc into the qnx machine running server. Has anyone run into problems with the qnx vnc server. I’m not sure if there is something I’m missing or what. Any help is appreciated.

Sure, I used the vnc server without a problem.

What errors do you have? You might want to check the logs in $HOME/.vnc directory to find out whether the vnc server is started properly.

I checked the /.vnc files and it seems one problems is that the server looks for files in /usr/X11R6/bin/lib/X11
on my qnx installation the files
are /opt/X11R6/bin/lib/X11

heres a sample of my localhost:2.log

Fatal server error:

Should I change the references in the vncserver file then recompile it? If so some simple instructions would be appreciated. Thanks again in advance.

Ok well I finally got the server to work by changing editing the vncserver file. Seems it was meant to require some customizing. Thanks everyone for your help. :smiley:

The vnc client/server was compiled against the XFree86 4.3 as found at
Had you downloaded and installed that, it would just work.
