Auto Install Remote Control for Raspberry PI (X11VNC) for non-Geeks
This is an old method of accessing a Pi remotely – I now use the built in VNC server but I’m leaving this here for posterity
This is only for non-geek people to easily set up their Pi for remote control
It is only tested/works on a clean install and not after a lot of fiddling has been done 🙂
Following on from previous success with my auto-install samba (Windows Networking ) I hope that this script will provide a simple way of installing x11vnc which give you full remote control over the normal Raspberry Pi standard desktop.
This is very useful when you want to power your Pi off batteries and stick some wheels on it and turn it into a robot vehicle.
To install, run LX Terminal and copy and paste the following code:
wget http://goo.gl/MbfUEp -O isx11.sh
and then press enter to download the installer
Once it has finished downloading, type the following and follow the instructions:
sudo bash isx11.sh
At the end, you need to reboot your Pi and then you should be able to use a VNC program on another computer (I use TightVNC myself) to connect and control and view your Pi
