Install x11vnc on deepin Linux

First of all, the deepin distribution of Linux is very pretty! I like the color scheme, icon design, control panel design, etc. Since the main feature of deepin is desktop design, I really want to use its desktop from my remote machines if bandwidth is fine.

I used to access my Linux machine by basic vnc, which creates a very simple desktop session, and different from the desktop.

In deepin, I've no idea how to create a session which is as the same looking. After searching, I found the x11vnc, which was created in 2002, but still works perfect! home page.

Install x11vnc on Debian-like system is very easy:

$ sudo apt install x11vnc

Then, create a password:

$ x11vnc -storepasswd

Start the server:

$ x11vnc -display :0 -usepw -forever -bg

And then, I can enjoy the exactly same desktop on Windows by vncviewer.
