I am running tightVNC 1.2.9-181.1 that came with SUSE.
The viewer is V 4.1.1 on XP.
I can open the VNC viewer session from XP and see the KDE menus but the
display is horrible and almost unreadable
The headings has a pinkish look and the background of a terminal session
is so dark brownish that you cannot read it.
I have started the VNC server on the Linux box using all the possible
variations of depth, pixelformat and geometry hoping it would make a
difference - but it didn't.
I looked in the VNC log file in the .VNC directory but there is no
If I connect from this XP machine to a HP or DEC machine, I have no
problem and the display is fine.
If I connect from any other PC to this LINUX box, I get the same bad
result so I assume it is something that I am missing on the VNCSERVER
Maybe someone knows better to make changes in the .Xresources,
vncserver, Xrdb, twm or xstartup files that might help ??????
Any suggestions will be welcome.
