[edit] Overview

Recipe for getting VNC on your BBB. There's an early tutorial here, and a mailing list post from Wilfredo Nieves here.

[edit] Recipe

  • Use opkg to install the x11vnc package:
# opkg update
# opkg install x11vnc
  • Run the command:
# x11vnc -bg -o %HOME/.xllvnc.log.%VNCDISPLAY -auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm*/database -display :0
  • Create an executable script somewhere with the contents:
#!/bin/sh
exec x11vnc -forever
  • Arrange to have that script executed at system startup.
