How can I autostart my VNC server on my Knoppix installation?

What are you running Knoppix from? A liveCD? – BloodPhilia Mar 12 '11 at 20:16

Create a file called ~/.config/autostart/xvnc.desktop.

Place within it this text:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=XVNC Server

Now su to root and do the following.

Create a file called /usr/local/bin/ and place within it the following text:

xhost +
x11vnc -display :0 -forever -passwd "foobar" &

And run chmod +x /usr/local/bin/xvnc/sh.

Exit from root.

This will allow connections as long as the server is running, and access to be granted by the password "foobar" as LXDE is started.

@stighy What's your window manager? I may be able to pinpoint your WM's startup file for you. – new123456 Mar 12 '11 at 22:09
My window manager is Lxde – stighy Mar 13 '11 at 18:17
