@San Jacinto: Actually this is a question on using user software, so it will likely be migrated to Super User. @Darkoni: See the FAQ (linked at the top of the page for site selection advice. However, please to not re-post this question, it will e moved by a quorum of high rep users. Probably pretty soon. – dmckee Sep 5 '10 at 0:05
Why are you running a vnc client under Wine ?? – Sathya Sep 5 '10 at 0:22

You don't need to run a Windows VNC client under WINE, there are compatible Linux VNC clients, too. RealVNC is one example, which installs as "Xvnc4" I believe.
