Xvnc with fuzzy fonts

Hi,
I am trying to start vnc at boot, and using information from
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=28340

It can start the vnc at boot, but with the fuzzy fonts in the vncviewer. However, if i start the vncserver manually, vncviewer is just fine.
Do Xvnc and Vncserver get the fonts from diff. place?

Below is my detail of services and inetd.conf files:
/etc/services
vnc1024x768x24 5953/tcp

/etc/inetd.conf
vnc1024x768x24 stream tcp nowait vnc /usr/local/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -dpi 75 -inetd -query localhost -once -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24

thanks.

Shalom Ken,

I think you need to perhaps start vncserver in a different way, after the xfs font server is already running.

It Should be possible to run this as a service and not as a part of inetd.conf

Re: Xvnc with fuzzy fonts

Thank you Steven.
i tried to have a script to start vnc at rc2.d as following, but i only got a blank screen with a mouse.

/bin/su -prod -c "usr/local/bin/vncserver :70"

If after reboot, i execute that script, the vncviewer is fine.
Please advise.

Thank you

Ken
