realvnc 3.3.5 still cannot read/display xmms playlist font
Mon Nov 11 15:40:01 2002
It looks to me like it could be a problem with Xvnc not being able to read
the fonts that xmms is using. If you've got a font server (xfs) running on
your linux box you could try doing:
xset fp= tcp/localhost:7100
This tells Xvnc to use the font server instead. Other people have reported
that this has fixed similar issues before.
