setting the color depth in VNC for VMWare workstation

[ #23122 ]

Note to self:

tightvnc, and probably realvnc, default to 8 bit color depth when starting a new server. VMWare workstation frowns on this and wants more. You can either start vncserver with '-depth 16' or edit vncserver (it's a perl script) and change line 36 to "$depth = 16;".

Also note that you can get emacs to display all its pretty colors with M-x list-color-display.

That is all.

Update: UltraVNC is a very interesting variant. The file transfer and chat options intrigue me. It appears to be targetted at the win32 platform. Is there a version for unixy things?
