Re: VNC on Compass

I use putty and it works perfectly for SSH and built some macros to do
ordinary tasks like that. I think I might have had to turn on SSH in
raspi-config and then all was fine.

I couldn't get VNC to work for me either, even after setting it using
raspi-config; I'm using RemoteDesktopViewer. I have ircddbgateway and
dummyrepeater running on the PI and found I can edit remotely using:-

ian@debian8:~$ ssh -X pi@
pi@'s password:


pi@compasslite01:~ $ sudo -E ircddbgatewayconfig
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

and the ircddbgatewayconfig window appears on my desktop regardless of the
error message and I can make " adjustments ".

Not the most elegant solution although it works for me..
