I use Fedora 23 ARM on a Raspberry Pi 2, with Xfce as a desktop environment. I want to install RealVNC. Can you help me ?

  • Do you particularly need RealVNC, or will any VNC do? Are you looking for a client or a server? – mattdm Apr 25 '17 at 17:41
  • Yes i need RealVNC because i want to stream omxplayer remotely, and RealVNC solve the problem on raspbian. – sam.k Apr 26 '17 at 8:31
  • I need RealVNC server of course – sam.k Apr 26 '17 at 11:09
  • You can play omxplayer remotely with the RealVNC server which is installed by default in Raspbian. You simply enable it from the Raspberry Pi Configuration app, and you should see the VNC icon appear in the top right to show it's running. If you click on this icon, go to Options > Troubleshooting and enable "experimental direct capture mode", this will allow you to capture directly-rendered screen content, such as that displayed by omxplayer. – sam.k Apr 27 '17 at 14:22
  • Ah, I see. You need RealVNC's experimental and proprietary "direct connect" feature. – mattdm Apr 27 '17 at 14:32

For most use, you could use TigerVNC, which is open source and available in Fedora.

The "experimental direct capture" RealVNC feature you want, however, is only included in the proprietary RealVNC software. There is a download available, but for ARM only for Debian currently. (See https://www.realvnc.com/download/vnc/raspberrypi/). They make RPMs, but only for x86. You might have success in asking RealVNC nicely to make a Fedora version.

Or, you could download the .deb and convert to rpm using alien. (I don't know how this fits with their licensing terms, so, mind that.)

  • I had alreday convert realVNC package to rpm and i tryed to install him using rmp -ivh , but he generate a dependency error: – sam.k Apr 28 '17 at 10:29

  • but, I found these libraries already installed !!!! using ldconfig – sam.k Apr 28 '17 at 11:07
  • Yeah, alien doesn't always translate that stuff well. You might try the "nodeps" flag to rpm and see what happens. – mattdm Apr 28 '17 at 11:08
  • this is waht i get after runnig rpm -ivh realvnc-vnc-server-6.0.3.27095-2.armhf.rpm --nodeps: "Preparation ################################# [100%] The realvnc-vnc-server-6.0.3.27095-2.armhf package is intended for a different architecture The / realvnc-vnc-server-6.0.3.27095-2.armhf installation file conflicts with the file of the filesystem-3.2-35.fc23.armv7hl package" – sam.k Apr 28 '17 at 16:32
