I have couple of fixes for those people trying to use VenueVNC with Fedora.
1. VenueVNC client fix, you will need to issue the following as root:
chmod a+rx /etc/AccessGrid/SharedApplications/VenueVNC/vncviewer
(this will be fixed in a new AccessGrid RPM I plan to release this week, it
will include a few other bug fixes)
2. VenueVNC server fixes regarding XAuthority.
A modified version of VenueVNCServer.py (patch or complete file) can be
In the modifed VenueVNCServer.py I use a transient XAuthority file to
tighten up security, it also allows the X applications executed from
~/.venuevnc/xstartup, access to the VNC display.
VenueVNCServer.py can be started as per the README.
