  1. x11vnc wont start

    I'm trying to start x11vnc so i can 'vncviewer' from my win xp laptop (work
    based so i have to let it be) to my beloved linux box at will from around
    the house, but x11vnc wont start up.
    Here is the last part of the output when i try to start x11vnc, ( i can post
    it all but the parts before this seem mundane and not related to errors )
    How can i fix this?

    The "localhost:11.0" X display above tells me you didn't run:

    x11vnc -display :0 ...

    and so x11vnc is using your $DISPLAY environment variable which is
    set
    to localhost:11. I guess that is an SSH X redirection tunnel (e.g. ssh
    -X).

    So try it with -display (or delete $DISPLAY from your environment,
    x11vnc falls
    back to ":0" if there is no -display on the cmdline and no $DISPLAY
    set).
