Make the 'Share Screen' button work with Linux servers
Authored by: john.barr.rowe on Nov 08, '07 06:07:24PM

Does anyone know how to get this working with Xvnc and inetd on Ubuntu? I have inetd set up to start /usr/bin/Xvnc with any connection to port 5900. This works with CotVNC and Vine viewer but not the Apple built in one.

With this trick enabled on my Ubuntu Linux machines, clicking the "Share Screen..." button shows me the connecting window but nothing else. I never see the remote screen, no matter what I do.

Does anyone have a setup like this that works? Alternatively, can you suggest a setup that would achieve the same thing?

Ditto. I get the very same thing when trying to access Linux vnc sessions both from Xvnc and from the builtin vnc module for Xorg (the one that lets you "share" you default :0 display instead of a separate logged in session). In either case, just the connection window and it never goes anywhere. I would love to know what the trick is to get linux VNC to work at all (let alone made easier to access).
