I am running a JNativeHook capture program on Ubuntu. When I run the session on default X session things are working fine. However when I run the same program from vnc session, it fails with "Xlib: extension "RECORD" missing on display".

I checked that this extension is loaded in X which is started by display manager/init. However I am not sure if indeed is initialized during vncserver startup. I could not see anything related in the vnc log.

I tried create custom xorg.conf with Module section, which explicitly loads RECORD extension as suggested by many posts but did not help.

My environment: Xorg-server: tightvncserver: 1.3.9

The same thing works fine on my CentOS 6.4 setup.
