Joerg & I had the following problem -

>whenever i try to start the vncserver on a Suse 5.0 Distr. with KDE3
>working perfectly under X11R6.3 i get the followin in ~/.vnc/X.log
>
>rfbInitSockets: listening on TCP port 5901
>httpInitSockets: listening on TCP port 5801
>failed to set default font path
>'/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X
>11/fonts/75dpi/'
>Fatal server error:
>could not open default font 'fixed'
>_X11TransSocketINETConnect: Can't connect: errno =3D 111
>_X11TransSocketINETConnect: Can't connect: errno =3D 111


Figured out the solution -

 /usr/X11R6/bin/vncserver
needs to have lines 125 & 126 [echoed below] uncommented

=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D
123      # Add font path and color database stuff here, e.g.:
124     #
125    $cmd .=3D " -fp /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/";
126   $cmd .=3D " -co /usr/lib/X11/rgb";
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Thanks for the help!
