NAME

vncserver - a wrapper to launch an X server for VNC.  

SYNOPSIS

vncserver [:display] [-geometry widthxheight] [-depth depth] [-pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN] [-name desktop-name] [Xvnc-options...]
vncserver -kill :display
vncserver -help
 

DESCRIPTION

vncserver is a wrapper script for Xvnc, the free X server for VNC (Virtual Network Computing). It provides all capabilities of a standard X server, but does not connect to a display for itself. Instead, Xvnc creates a virtual desktop you can view or control remotely using a VNC viewer.  

OPTIONS

You can add Xvnc options at the command line. They will be added to the invocation of Xvnc without changes. The options provided by the vncserver itself are as follows:
:display
The display number to use. If omitted, the next free display number is used.
-geometry widthxheight
Set desktop width and height.
-depth depth
Set the colour depth of the visual to provide, in bits per pixel. Must be a value between 8 and 32.
-pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN
Set colour format for pixels representation. The viewer can do the conversion to any other pixel format, but it is faster if the depth and pixel format of the server is the same as the equivalent values on the viewer display.
-name string
This specifies the name of the desktop.
-kill :display
Stops the session running on the specified display.
-help
Prints a short usage notice to stderr.
 

EXAMPLES

vncserver
Invokes Xvnc on the next available display and with suitable defaults.
vncserver :1
Invokes Xvnc on display :1.
vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 :1
Invokes Xvnc on display :1 with desktop size of 800x600 pixels and color depth of 16 bits per pixel.
vncserver -kill :1
Shuts down Xvnc server on display :1.
