Hello,

I want to use vnc for remote desktops.  Server is a rhel6 and clients
on windows
and other linux machines.

I get an error when I issue "vncserver :1":

catalog is not properly configured.  Attempting to determine an appropriate

I have tried issuing this command on both the server (console) and the
client (remote) side.

I do not understand what is the meaning of the font catalog being
misconfigured.  Where can I
learn more about that?

Thank you,

Mirko



I'd first investigate to see if any other X servers are listening on :1. The "switch user" functionality in the display manager often has the X server grabbing multiple screens. You may have something listening there already.

Look for /tmp/.X*lock

You can also try starting vncserver on a different screen (e.g. vncserver :5) to see if it will start. If it does, it's not the font catalog.
