In my experience, prefixing x11vnc with sudo is required. Without it, I get an error similar to:

x11vnc -display :0 -auth /var/run/lxdm/lxdm-\:0.auth
*** XOpenDisplay failed (:0)

Can you suggest the syntax one needs to use to make your edit true? Thank you. Graysky (talk) 20:42, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

This way:

x11vnc -display :0

However, the wiki says that using an X authority file requires root generally.

You may secure the server without using an X authority file, by creating a password file:

x11vnc -storepasswd

Then running x11vnc this way:

x11vnc -display :0 -rfbauth ~/.x11vnc/passwd
