Description John Florian 2013-01-31 14:44:00 EST
Description of problem:
Scripts I had to launch vncviewer which worked fine under Fedora 16 no longer work in Fedora 18 -- vncviewer quits immediately with a exit code of 1.  If I remove the '-display :0' option, things seem to work but there appears to no longer be any way to specify which local X display the viewer is to be shown on.

When the -display parameter is given, vncviewer does show a list of all valid parameters.  The -display parameter is no longer shown here.  However, it is still shown in the man page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Expected results:
It looks like this option (along with a few others) have been removed.  The man page should also reflect these changes, if they are indeed intended.

Additional info:
Comparing to tigervnc-1.1.0-6.1.fc17.x86_64.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2013-07-08 11:18:55 EDT
"-display" is working for me in tigervnc-1.2.80-0.16.20130314svn5065.fc19.x86_64.
