In Mandrake Linux, you need to install vncserver.

#urpmi vncserver

Once you do so, open a terminal in the user display that you want to export. This can be done locally or remotely.

Type the following:

vncserver --geometry 1280x1024 (You can change the geometry to whatever you want to output 1024x768)

Provide a passowrd when it asks for one.

Start the tightvnc client.

Good luck,

Yuyo

Are you trying to export the current display, PC Anywhere style for remote control? Or are you just trying to export any display i.e. trying to run the applications residing on the one PC regardless of which display.

i have successfully run vncserver and a vncviewer to view it.

the question now is this:
if i am the server, how can the other clients from other computers that are connected to me can ONLY view my desktop and not tamper it!

Because when you are running the vncserver, you are exporting display 1 or higher not display 0(which is the desktop you are looking at now). There is only one vncserver package that I know of that will export display 0 and that is x0rfbserver.

Acctually you should just edit the xstartup file in the .vnc hidden folder. home/.vnc/xstartup. The second post on this link has an example xstartup config. http://www.linuxques...s/history/52949
