display issue with rox filer when viewing from tightvnc
« on: June 23, 2018, 09:51:59 AM »
Not sure if this is a bug - I'm exploring TCL as a beginner. I'm experimenting with tightvnc, and everything is working fine, except that through the vncviewer on Windows, I get graphical issues with rox filer.

Shown here:


The rox filer partially working is run as tc, whilst the crashed one I tried as root (window immediately disappeared and gave that error message).
I'm using TCL 9.0, installed onto the HDD of a really old laptop (~2001 Compaq Evo Mobile Athlon XP, which works well in TCL btw).
I run tightvnc like this:

Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
Xvnc :1 -rfbauth $HOME/.vnc/passwd &
DISPLAY=:1.0 flwm_topside & # <--- is there a better way than this, so that wbar also loads, as if I'm tc logging in

wbar works nicely through vnc, and even has a nice near-native framerate.

I've tried with realvnc, and it has the same issues. I noticed when I force the Xvnc -depth 32, it gives a different output, with black icons at the top and a garbled image. As rox filter uses gtk (I think) - I suspect that it is the issue.
