vnc server start failure

sky2371
Hi:

I am having trouble getting tightvnc to start with Fedora
8. I installed tightvnc from an rpm file then added the following lines
to /etc/sysconfig/vncservers 


 VNCSERVERS="1:vncuser"
VNCSERVERARGS[1]="-geometry 1024x768"

When I try to start the service it complains something about the font path
as shown in the console output below.

Thanks in advance for your help!


[hidden email] sysconfig]# service vncserver start

It looks like you have to edit the font path in the /usr/bin/vncserver
script. Set it to the same font path as used by the primary X server.
