tightvnc fixed font fatal error [SOLVED]

Post#1 by phill42083 » 12 Dec 2012, 02:56

Hello everyone,
I have been trying to install tightvncserver v1.3.9 for 3 days on my porteus v1.2 i486 usb stick, I downloaded all of the fonts required (x11 fonts) from various places and I still cant get it to work. I have even tried editing the perl script but Instead of listing all of the missing font it just said "FATAL ERROR: Can not open default font 'fixed' ". I can upload both xzm's if need be (tightvncserver, and x11missingfontpack i made
). I have searched google over and over and i still cant find anything useful. I have literally been stuck on this for 3days. I would appreciate any help if possible. Thanks..

Hi phill42083,

I am using Porteus 1.2 x64bit with tightvnc-1.3.10-x86_64-1.xzm without any problem.
Activated compat32-libraries-1.1.02_13.37-x86_64-2ftm.xzm.

This topic should be in "i486 bug reports" as it appears to only affects i486 module of TightVNC.
