Re: [PLUG] Library

Did a deep dive on x11vnc a while back and I just use this shell script. I forget what half of the flags mean! (
Your box needs Xvfb, x11vnc and a window manager (here I'm using openbox, but you can go low resources and use twm!)
In short it tunnels vnc to your host (since x11vnc security is ehh) and you use a vncviewer to open a small window session with Xvfb (virtual frame buffer).



ssh -t -L 5567:localhost:5567 username@box "nohup x11vnc -create -env FD_PROG="$PRG" -env X11VNC_FINDDISPLAY_ALWAYS_FAILS=1 -env X11VNC_CREATE_GEOM=1024x768x16 -gone 'pkill Xvfb' -bg -noxinerama -nopw -noxdamage -noipv6 -rfbport 5567" &

vncviewer -depth 8 -encodings "copyrect tight hextile" localhost:5567

Drove by a library today with a sign about learning coding and borrowing
some sort of hardware bits to help. Very interesting.

I just looked at x11vnc. The man is humongous.
Exercise: how would a newbie see it and is there an easier way? It also
made me yearn for Adderall.

There's something funny about controlling your computer from your
tablet. Or phone.
