When I'm using VNC, the screen goes black after an inactivity for around 2 seconds. If I move the mouse or press a key the screen goes back however this is very annoying.
I have KDE 4.10 on both systems, I'm tunneling the VNC through the SSH connection (
ssh -R5900:localhost:5900 myhost) from the server to my local computer.
x11vnc as a server and Tight VNC as a client.
I've tried different vnc clients (vinagre, real vnc, xvnc4viewer) but the issue remains.
Also, I've tried different settings to
x11vnc server (-sb 0 -nonap -noxdamage etc) but nothing works for me.
There is a thread on kubuntuforums with the same issue, but doesn't seem to be resolved.
Do any of you have some idea what can be causing this behavior?
