Ubuntu :: TightVNC - D Key Minimizes Current Window On Server

Nov 11, 2010

When accessing the server from any client, the 'd' key minimizes the current window on the server (not the VNC client itself). Every other key seems to work fine and I can use the key combo <ALT>-d to issue a 'd', but that is less than convenient. I saw this post [URL] which said to use gconf-editor to set a keyboard layout, but that didn't fix the problem.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Connect To Tightvnc Windows Server?

May 23, 2011

I'm having an issue connecting to my media PC running windows 7 x64 using the remote desktop viewer built into my ubuntu 10.04 x64 install. I can connect to the windows machine using chicken of the VNC on my mac with zero hassle. Unfortunately when I try and use remote desktop viewer on my ubuntu destkop I get an immediate:Code:Connection to host 192.168.1.103 was closed.I've tried connecting to 192.168.1.103::5900 as well, with the same result. Again I can connect using my mac (using chicken of the vnc), just not remote desktop viewer =( Any thoughts on why this might be?Remote desktop viewer on my desktop has successfully connected to other Ubuntu & OSx machines..

Fedora :: TightVNC Configures Server To External IP

Dec 31, 2009

I'm attempting to setup a VNC server. Both machines are behind the same router however when I run tightVNC (through Wine) it configures the server to my external IP. I don't want this, because I have no need to access this machine outside of my network (can ssh for anything while I'm away). Btw both machines are running Fedora (11 and 12)

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 TightVNC Server Immediately Disconnects?

Mar 17, 2010

I am trying to run VNC server on a standard OpenSUSE 11.2 Gnome Desktop installation.I have done this succesfully with SLES for sometime, however, my experience with OpenSUSE 11.2 is that it doesn't work out of the box!!

I am using XP Pro VNC viewer Free Edition 4.1.2 to connect.

I have removed "localhost" from the # special IPv6 addresses in hosts. This fixes the black screen issue for me. All appears well until I disconnect and retry the connection after 5 minutes or so. Then VNC client makes the connection and then immediately disconnects. It's a no go from then on. If I reboot OpenSUSE 11.2 it works again but then reconnect fails again after the same period of time.

I am trying NX now as an alternative. However, I would much prefer to use VNC.

Ubuntu :: TightVNC Error:server Did Not Offer Supported Security Type

May 10, 2011

I will try to keep this straight-forward. Yesterday I was able to access an ubuntu 10.10 (edubuntu) desktop using the tightVNC viewer that I installed on my Vista laptop. I never set anything up on the desktop it just worked and I didn't question it.

Today I get the following error on the viewer software: "Server did not offer supported security type" The only thing that has changed was that I installed a bunch of updates yesterday afternoon, but I am not sure what changed.

OpenSUSE Network :: Tightvnc Server On 11.4 And Keyboard Mapping?

Apr 21, 2011

I use opensuse 11.4 with TightVNC Server version 1.3.9. I use french keyboard mapping (yast configuration).When I connect with putty via ssh all is ok (keyboard mapping). But when I use tightvnc viewer on windows the mapping is not correct.I've verified many time the configuration of the keyboard in yast (graphical) and desktop options (french mapping). I can't map correctly. It seem there is no issue with direct attached keyboard.Another strange behavior is the shift key. I want to use . (need to press shift + and this put a >. But sometime if I press "shift + ," before then "shift + ;" it works.

I've passed long time on google and find no answer yet.Is there a issue with tightvnc server ?A bug with tightvnc viewer ? (I've tried with realvnc and same results).

Debian Multimedia :: Tightvnc Server And Can't Start GUI Apps As Root

Feb 12, 2015

I have headless debian as a server which i use over tightvnc server running on it. Vnc works fine but I can't for example run sudo mousepad or any other gui app from terminal, it says something about not having the rights to open it as root. I understand this has something to do with security, but my computers are behind nat so the vnc server can only be connected inside my lan so i don't mind.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Click Mouse Outside Current Window?

Mar 24, 2011

I've just recently begun to have a problem with my mouse. I can use it normally in one window, but it will not click outside of this window. I cannot use the title bar buttons either. It seems like right clicking "frees" the mouse, but then it just gets stuck in the next window I open.

General :: Ubuntu - Bring An Open Window To The Current Desktop?

Aug 2, 2010

Let's say I have a program open on another virtual desktop. Is there a way I can bring that program to the current desktop through a script? The following command is the closest I can get:

wmctrl -a program This will switch to the desktop where the program is open and make it the foremost window. However, instead of going to the desktop where the program is, I want to bring the program to the current desktop. There is also this command:

wmctrl -R program The documentation says that this will do what I want, but it just does the same thing as the former command.

I maximize it and it just re-minimizes it. What can I do to stop this?

OpenSUSE :: Clicking On Item In Task Manager Minimizes Other Active Apps?

Feb 28, 2010

I'm trying to key information into an OpenOffice spreadsheet that is being viewed in another application, typically Firefox. Both windows are sized such that they fit on the screen at the same time. Prior to a week or so ago, this was very straight forward. Now when I click on an app in the Task Manager after opening OpenOffice, other open apps are minimized - sometimes all of them, sometimes just the most recent. I usually have Dolphin, a terminal window, Firefox, OpenOffice and sometimes a spreadsheet open. A friend who is far more familiar with Linux than I, suggested that the memory manager may have gotten confused and that logging out should clear this up. I tried that to no avail, as well as rebooting. I've also looked through the options in each of the apps that I've got open to see if there's any obvious user options that might be affecting this. I've found nothing.

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Access Sudo Nautilus (gksudo Nautilus) From The Current Window

Feb 11, 2011

Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.

Ubuntu Servers :: Can Server Alongside Current Windows Server Without Bring Everything To Screeching Halt?

Dec 8, 2010

In trying to help our office modernize its IT infrastructure, one of the key components is maintaing our server. We have around 50-60 people who need access to a local server primarily for secure general file storage. These employees are geographically dispersed. We currently use some(?) version of Windows Server which is maintained and updated by a IT company we keep on retainer. After doing some very basic research on Ubuntu Server, I would like to try and incorporate a pilot program utilizing the Ubuntu Server software.I was successful in installing Ubuntu Server on an unused PC that I put a clean hard drive in. I have been following the direction of the Official Ubuntu Server manual to assist in the server setup, and this has progressed my cause up to a point.

Can I run an Ubuntu Server alongside our current Windows server without bring everything to a screeching halt? Additionally, I am the only mac computer in an office filled with varying version of windows. I have begun to configure samba but need some direction from the community as to updating the workgroup so my mac can connect to the Ubuntu Server. What do I need to put in the workgroup part of the /etc/samba/smb.conf directory?I have no doubt there will be face palms by the community after reading this thread, but I am trying my best to teach myself the Ubuntu way.

Debian Configuration :: Keeping The Dns Server Running With Current Server Information?

Jun 26, 2010

I'm running the current release of Debian with the 2.6.26-2 kernel. This is an upgrade from an older (2.4 kernel) series redhat release. One of the things I had working in the older system was a dns server with accompanying monthly update of the root hints file. I tried working through a dns how-to to set this up again, but it seems much has moved around since I last played with this. All of the files listed in the how-to are not where it says they should be. I am looking for a better reference on keeping the dns server running with current server information.

Ubuntu :: TightVNC Assigning All Keystrokes Incorrect

Jan 7, 2010

The goal was to remote desktop to my linux box from my windows machine, I went down the path of TightVNC. Installed and ran it.. thought I was all clear.. however the keyboard keystrokes are all jumbled, and seem to be all over the shop. (i.e.: when I press 'p' it actually comes out as 'X' etc. Happens for all keystrokes. Had a quick look around but haven't found any information on it. Uninstalled tightvnc server and installed vnc4server and it resolved the issue, shrug.

Red Hat :: RHEL5 - How To Install TightVNC 1.3.10

Feb 2, 2010

I need to get TightVNC installed on RHEL 5.

I downloaded and extracted tightvnc-1.3-.10_unixsrc.tar.bz2. I have directory called vnc_unixsrc. I went into this directory and tried running xmkmf but got the kick back saying command not found. After doing some searching around looks like i need imake. So I ran yum install imake, installed imake. went back to my vnc_unixsrc directory and tried runnign xmkmf again (failed) did some more searching and looks like people recommended I reference the path to xmkmf. So, while I was in vnc_unixsrc I tried /usr/bin/xmkmf and I get:

This doesn't look right.... Lost here... should I try to execute make World next? or I do still need to figure out xmkmf first...

Fedora :: Possible To Install TightVNC-client?

Dec 24, 2009

I'm accustomed to using the tightvnc client to view servers running vnc. Since installing Fedora, I see that it uses Tigervnc for everything, and there is no tightvnc client available. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, especially since Tigervnc seems more functional. The problem I'm having is that there are "artifacts" when using tigervnc to connect to one of my servers. It's so bad, that I can hardly use it to view that server. I've tried to change some of the options in tigervnc, but the app just crashes when I try to save the changes.

Anyone else experience this problem with tightvnc? Anyone tried installing one of the old tightvnc packages from rpmfind.net or rpm.pbone.net?

Test video call using tightvnc and another laptop C (winXP) - seems to work (see video on both C and B (via A tightvnc)). User X tries to use google talk on Computer B with no success, no video, no audio (could be config problem).Then I ask myself and others, how is this possible, or actually how to fix it.
