I have to say first that I've identified with every post of Dr.
Joel's; I'm having all the same issues, I just don't type as fast.
I've started running vncviewer on my Linux console with no window
manager also, (Thanks Ivan!) and have only 2 problems.
- the geometry -- the best I can get is 1020x744 on my 1024x768
screen. If I start the server explicitly with 1024x768, the viewer
comes up with scrollbars.
- exiting. how do you exit your vncviewer? when running in a
managed window, i can just close or kill the window. with no
window manager, I have to kill it with "kill"? actually right now
since the viewer doesn't fill the whole screen, I move the cursor
off the edge to the xterm that I'm starting in my real .xsession
and hitting ^C. (: but that can't be the right way.
Thanks, ORL! I'm just starting the process now of evaluating whether
we can use vnc in our hospital as part of the primary access method
of our users. I think it might work.
