Type: enhancementtask

We used to have Vino VNC server in the book, but I removed it when I removed GNOME. Having another one doesn't hurt.

This builds and installs quite easily, but does not appear to create a vncviewer program. To add this to BLFS, we would need both client (vncviewer) and server (this program).

Any suggestions for a client?

I would suggest tigervnc (needs fltk):

tar -xvf fltk-1.3.2-source.tar.gz &&
cd fltk-1.3.2 &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-shared --enable-cairo &&
make && 
make install

tar -xvf tigervnc-1.3.0.tar.bz2 &&
cd tigervnc-1.3.0 &&
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr . &&
make &&
make install 

comment:6 by Thomas de Roo, 9 years ago

That would actually also install a server: x0vncserver

I'd suggest http://remmina.sourceforge.net/ for the client part.

Summary: Add x11vnc to BLFSAdd vnc solution to BLFS

I'm going to look at alternative vnc solutions, particularly tigervnc. I'll either get something working and add it to the book or mark this as wontfix.

Changing title of this ticket.
