Creating configs



  • Hi,
    don’t know if I’m stupid or what, but while reading the tutorial to set up the Raspberry (link: https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/wiki/Configuring-the-Raspberry-Pi), in the last section for VNC, I am asked to create a config file like this:
    Create an auto-start file:

    cd ~/.config
    mkdir autostart
    cd autostart
    nano x11vnc.desktop
    

    My Problem is, that I don’t know at all where this stuff has to be written to get the wanted effect.
    Pretty sure now it is stupidity, maybe I also got the wrong Forum, please forgive me…

    Thank you!



  • After you type nano x11vnc.desktop you should type

    [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Type=Application
    Name=X11VNC
    Comment=
    Exec=x11vnc -forever -usepw -display :0 -ultrafilexfer
    StartupNotify=false
    Terminal=false
    Hidden=false
    

    which causes x11vnc to autostart
