vncviewer no longer honors -display parameter
Last modified: 2013-07-08 11:18:55 EDT
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):
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.
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.
"-display" is working for me in tigervnc-1.2.80-0.16.20130314svn5065.fc19.x86_64.
