VNC problems

Postby luisortega on Mon Jan 09, 2012 11:47 pm

Hello all, coming from Fedora and am really enjoying LMDE on my HTPC so far.

My problem: I'm using X11VNC and am having a problem with it trying to show too much.

The computer's hooked into the tv, and because of overscan issues I've had to change the resolution to 1740x980 to see all the desktop. The command I'm running is "x11vnc -usepw -ncache 10 -forever -tightfilexfer"

The problem is when I VNC into it the bottom bar is "mirrored," there's also a giant scroll bar along the right side of the viewer. When I look at connection info desktop geometry is listed as 1740x11760(!) Scrolling down through it, I see random bits and pieces of desktop.

I have no clue what could be wrong or why it's doing it :?
VNC viewer in full screen, the bottom menu bar is not supposed to be there

If you get rid of the "-ncache 10" you won't have this problem:

not all vncviewers will hide the cache region from you.
