About vncviewer option

satimis
Hi folks,


This is my first time running vncviewer. On local desktop running;


$ vncviewer 192.168.0.110:1

viewer display can be started.  But I found no way to resize it.  I
need a bigger window.  Please advise how to do it.  TIA


Where can I find relevant doc running it other than "man".

Stephen, You cannot resize it. You have to set the geometry on the
server beforehand with something like:

vncserver -geometry 1024x768 [-other options]

Replace "1024x768" with whatever works for you.

Hi Rohit,


Thanks for your advice.


Tried running following command on Xterm;

$ vncviewer -geometry 1024x768 192.168.0.110:1


The window size is the same as without "-geometry 1024x768", too small
to read.

Stephen

Re: About vncviewer option

Neal Hartgrove
Stephen,

The -geometry command is only valid with the vncserver (runs on host machine - the machine you are trying to connect to - in your email below 192.168.0.110) command and NOT the vncviewer (runs on your machine - the command you use to connect to the host machine).
Here are some examples I run on my linux box.

vncserver -depth 16 -pixelformat RGB565 -geometry 1024x768 &
evncserver -depth 16 -pixelformat RGB565 -geometry 1280x1024 &
vncserver -depth 16 -pixelformat RGB565 -geometry 1280x1024 &

I have a 21 inch monitor and when I start up the vncserver with 1280x1024, it fills up my monitor when I vncviewer (I like to say, when I vnc) into that machine.

I hope this helps.

I am not sure if you can pass geometry parameters on a PC - what I mean is I do NOT think you can do this on a PC

vncserver -geometry 1280x1024.

I am not aware of the -geometry option being available on a PC.

Have you looked at the web page for any help or answers to your question/problem.

Re: About vncviewer option

Hi Neal,


Thanks for your advice and URL.


I did look at your URL before posting my question.  I could not find my
answer there.

If I understand the your advice abovementioned correctly.  I have to
run;

# vncserver -depth 16 -pixelformat RGB565 -geometry 1024x768 &

(remark: I have a 19" LCD display on desktop PC.  Athough it supports
1280x1024 resolution would the fonts be a little bid smaller?)

on the server first.  Then running "vncviewer 192.168.0.1:1" on the
deskop PC I can vnc the window of 1024x768 resolution to it.


The remote server, which is a virtual machine, is under my control.  I
can ssh-connect the server.  The server I need to vnc to the desktop PC
is the guest OS running on the said virtual machine.  My problem is I
must vnc the guest OS first before I can take up full control.


My question is would the running of the above command be permanent.  If
YES then after closing vnc and re-vnc (or on next boot) I can have the
display of new size on the desktop PC?


TIA


B.R.
Stephen

Both are headless without X packages installed.

Knoppix 5.1 LiveCD


Is there a configure file of vncserver which I can set the display size
permanent?  TIA


Others noted with thanks.

Hi Neal,


Further to my late posting, I can't find vncserver on the OSs, both
guest ana host.  I supposed it is included on qemu/kvm.


New discovery.

I ran another LiveCD, Myrinix-Gnome.  Vnc the guest.  The display is
much bigger, also with bigger fonts.  I doubt whether the size of
vncviewer display is controlled by vncviewer NOT by vncserver.
