Broadcast on linuxmint 17.3 is it work or not?

Asked by Sinisa

Hi. Im trying to install epoptes server on linuxmint kde 17.1 and epoptes client on linuxmint kde 17.3. Following instructions I got it to work everything except broadcast. In answered questions i saw that it will not work for non lts versions of linux.
Is it possible to run broadcast with my versions of linuxmint or not.
What you suggest.
Epoptes that i install is version 0.5.7-1.

OK I managed to silve this problem. I didnt find answer that on server must install x11vnc so in konsole just run #sudo apt-get install x11vnc and broadcast now work just fine. Bu I have another problem.

My other problem is that if clients are active, and then I start server I cannot see any clients until they reboot. Same situation is if I reboot my computer.
So what is solution for this problem?

Do you have all the epoptes Recommends installed? and the Recommends of the Recommends? And the Recommends of the Recommends of the Recommends... etc.

LinuxMint used to disable installing Recommends, and maybe it still does, which results in random features breaking.

Additionally, epoptes 0.5.10 has been out for quite some time; consider upgrading to that, as it fixes many bugs.

Good luck!

live well,

Epoptes reconnections were implemented in version 0.5.10, so you need to add the PPA and upgrade both the server and the clients to that.
