BTW, my X display has nice overlay/multi-depth visuals of different color depths: e.g.there are both depth 8 and 24 visuals available at the same time.libxtst-dev, 20/03/2005 or other packages.) 20/03/2005 No XTEST extension, switching to -xwarppointer mode for 20/03/2005 pointer motion input. checking for XFixes Get Cursor Image in -l Xfixes...yes checking for XDamage Query Extension in -l Xdamage...mode works well if the VNC viewer is run on a Unix/Linux machine with a similar keyboard.But if I run the VNC viewer on Unix/Linux with a different keyboard (e.g.These dev packages include C header files and build-time symlink.It is a shame the current trend in distros is to not install the dev package by default when the the library runtime package is installed... no checking for Xinerama Query Screens in -l Xinerama... no gcc make libc6-dev libjpeg8-dev (formerly libjpeg62-dev) libx11-dev x11proto-core-dev (formerly x-dev) libxext-dev libxtst-dev libxdamage-dev libxfixes-dev libxrandr-dev libxinerama-dev libxss-dev (formerly xlibs-static-dev) zlib1g-dev libssl-dev libavahi-client-dev linux-libc-dev (only needed for linux console rawfb support) gcc make glibc-devel libjpeg-devel lib X11-devel xorg-x11-proto-devel lib Xdamage-devel lib Xfixes-devel lib Xrandr-devel zlib-devel openssl-devel avahi-devel kernel-headers (only needed for linux console rawfb support) For other distros or OS's the package names may not be the same but will look similar.
Color problems: Why are the colors for some windows incorrect in x11vnc?
(it diminishes the power of open source) As of Nov/2006 here is a list of libraries that x11vnc usually likes to use: checking how to run the C preprocessor... Also, distros tend to rename packages as well so the above list may be out of date. Note: there is growing trend in Linux and other distros to slice up core X11 software into more and smaller packages. x11vnc will build without support for this library (e.g.
So only use the above lists as hints for the package names that are needed. So be prepared for more headaches compiling software... perhaps one wants a view-only x11vnc on a stripped down or embedded system...) And at runtime it will also continue to run even if the X server it connects to does not support XTEST.
yes configure: WARNING: ========================================================================== A working build environment for the XTEST extension was not found (lib Xtst).
An x11vnc built this way will be only barely usable.
