Hi,

I want to run xf4vnc as a non-root process and still use
its GLX extension. It looks like the way to enable GLX is
thru the configuration file. Is there a way to force it to
read a configuration file that is not in its standard
installation directory? What else can I do to enable it for
GLX?

Regards,

Ajit Verma

    You do not need to be root to have the GLX extension. It's
    also enabled by default.

    I suspect you have an older Xvnc binary in /usr/bin that you
    should probably remove, whereas the xf4vnc's Xvnc program
    gets installed in /usr/X11R6/bin.
