Re: [Abated] Black screen tigervnc

Re: [Abated] Black screen tigervnc

and you have xterm too? :-)

Are the symptoms the same?  Just a plain black screen?  Does the mouse react?

Yes. Just a plain black screen without a reaction form the mouse.

Re: [Abated] Black screen tigervnc

which xorg version you use?

see the patch here : https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … s/tigervnc

so if you use 1.18.1 try to downgrading, perhaps it's a stupid idea....

Re: [Abated] Black screen tigervnc

It's 1.18.1.

I'll try, but Arch isn't designed for outdated packages, is it?

Re: [Abated] Black screen tigervnc

I tried downgrading Xorg to 1.17 and failed.
Errors where everywhere. The vnc connection was simply refused and after a reboot I discovered that the whole OS was broken.

I have to reinstall ArchBang again.
