To Suse list users,

Does anyone have VNC working with Open SUSE Leap 15? No matter how I
configure things I get the black screen. Port 5801 and 5901 are in a listen
mode. The web browser does the same thing, black screen after successful

I have VNC working just fine on Leap 42.3

Thank You,
Bob Perez

I'm using x11vnc through a ssh tunnel.

I need to specify the path explicitly for x11vnc, to get it working.

Maybe other solutions suffer from the same problem?
