I have a server with Xubuntu 11.10 Desktop installed, and x11vnc. When on login screen I want x11vnc to start and to take some settings:

Automatically set defined password

Automatically accept conncetions, but ask for a password

Automatically start this script on loading the system, not the user profile.

How can I do this.

Assuming that you can create a script that does the operations you would like to do at startup you can then:
1. Create the script (e.g. runX11vnc.sh)
2. Copy the script to /etc/init.d
3. Run the following commands:
sudo update-rc.d runX11vnc.sh defaults
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/runX11vnc.sh

The script should now run on startup.
