Hi

I found this link https://wiki.edubuntu.org/InstallX11VncOnLtspClients that contains a script for x11vnc to be put in the /etc/init.d directory. Being an old script, I have transformed the structure into:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
case "$1" in
  start)
  start-stop-daemon --start --oknodo \
  --pidfile /var/run/x11vnc.pid --background \
  --nicelevel 15 --make-pidfile --exec \
  /usr/bin/x11vnc -rfbport 5900 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 -rfbauth /etc/x11vnc.pass -nomodtweak -noxrecord -shared -forever -loop -o /var/log/x11vnc.log
  ;;
  stop)
  start-stop-daemon --stop --oknodo --pidfile /var/run/x11vnc.pid
  ;;
  restart)
  $0 stop
  $0 start
  ;;
  *)
  echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|restart"
  ;;
esac
exit 0
So I wrote the sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/x11vnc and sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/x11vnc /etc/rc2.d/S99x11vnc commands. indeed:

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 apr  4 19:21 /etc/rc2.d/S99x11vnc -> /etc/init.d/x11vnc
The commands to create the password, I do not have them done because I had them already made. So, I rebooted the machine, but the x11vnc server is not started and, moreover, it has not created any log file.

So, I tried to run the command sudo /etc/init.d/x11vnc start and its ouput is:

Code:
start-stop-daemon: invalid option -- 'f'
How come?

Thanks

Bye

I created this script:

Code:
#! /bin/sh
#
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: x11vnc
# Required-Start: $syslog $local_fs
# Required-Stop: $syslog $local_fs
# Should-Start: LightDM
# Default-Start: 2
# Default-Stop: 1
# Short-Description: x11 vnc
# Description: x11vnc
### END INIT INFO
DAEMON=/usr/bin/x11vnc
NAME=x11vnc
DESC="X11 vnc"
test -x $DAEMON || exit 0
DAEMON_OPTS="-auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 -rfbauth /etc/x11vnc.pass -nomodtweak -shared -forever -o /var/log/x11vnc.log -bg"
set -e
 case "$1" in
  start)
  echo -n "Starting $DESC: "
  start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile /var/run/$NAME.pid \
  --exec $DAEMON -- $DAEMON_OPTS &
  echo "$NAME."
  ;;
  stop)
  echo -n "Stopping $DESC: "
  start-stop-daemon --stop --oknodo --quiet --pidfile /var/run/$NAME.pid \
  --exec $DAEMON
  echo "$NAME."
  ;;
  restart)
  echo -n "Restarting $DESC: "
  start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile \
  /var/run/$NAME.pid --exec $DAEMON
  sleep 1
  start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile \
  /var/run/$NAME.pid --exec $DAEMON -- $DAEMON_OPTS
  echo "$NAME."
  ;;
  status)
  if [ -s /var/run/$NAME.pid ]; then
  RUNNING=$(cat /var/run/$NAME.pid)
  if [ -d /proc/$RUNNING ]; then
  if [ $(readlink /proc/$RUNNING/exe) = $DAEMON ]; then
  echo "$NAME is running."
  exit 0
  fi
  fi
  # No such PID, or executables don't match
  echo "$NAME is not running, but pidfile existed."
  rm /var/run/$NAME.pid
  exit 1
  else
  rm -f /var/run/$NAME.pid
  echo "$NAME not running."
  exit 1
  fi
  ;;
  *)
  N=/etc/init.d/$NAME
  echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|force-reload}" >&2
  exit 1
  ;;
 esac
exit 0
and I saved in /etc/init.d/x11vnc and, apparently, it works and I can also control the LightDM.

Now, I continue in my main threadhttp://www.linux.org/threads/lubuntu-13-10-x11vnc-and-ultravnc.5715 .

Thanks

Bye
