Add x11vnc

Recommended Posts

After upgrading to buster (great!!) and installing desktop on my HC1, the standard procedure of starting a VNC server and using Real VNC viewer from a Mac ran into errors.


I tried the following alternative solutions to get to the desktop

- xrdp and Microsoft Remote Desktop (Mac)

- tigervnc-scraping-server and Real VNC Viewer (Mac)

--> No support for clipboard transfer, keyboard support awful and incomplete (missing # and | and so on)


x11vnc with Real VNC Viewer (Mac) solved both issues, except keyboard autorepeat. So I strongly suggest adding x11vnc prominently as an alternative to xrdp.
