@NewToKindle: In that case, your VNC server doesn't send it. It's most probably a configurable feature of the server. kvncviewer does not support displaying an own mouse cursor at the moment. And I don't see much sense in having it do so, as that feature is mostly for devices that already have a mouse cursor on their own - which the Kindle hasn't, of course.

@MoyoWa: Well, it might be a funny reaction to some parameters - and thus a bug in kvncviewer. That's why I'd like a "second opinion" from another VNC viewer.

Hello,

I'm at the last step of the instructions found here:

http://www.techhive.com/article/2595...c_display.html

I'm having a similar issue to the one NewToKindle mentioned above. I get an error message:

# com.lab126.powerd failed to set value for property preventScreenSaver (0x3)
/mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh: line 7: ./kindlevncviewer: Permission denied
com.lab126.powerd failed to set value for property preventScreenSaver (0x3)

I have tried a few things based on the advice you gave earlier but I'm not competent with things this advanced. Could you please give me any more details about what I can do to fix this?

Errrm - NewToKindle described the problem as being that the mouse cursor isn't shown. The actual error in your case is
Code:
/mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh: line 7: ./kindlevncviewer: Permission denied
... and I have a hard time to figure out what the problem could be here. Are you sure that the file "kindlevncviewer" actually exists within the same folder that kvncviewer.sh file is in? When in doubt, reinstall KindleVNCviewer by copying over the whole kindlevncviewer folder again. Make extra sure to use the USB device eject function so that all files are written properly.

Ok, I just copied over the kvncviewer folder again and that fixed it I thought I had tried that already. Maybe using the eject function made the difference. Anyway, thanks very much.

Hi is there any way to get better contrast using vnc. I tought about using it with raspberry pi, but the lack of contrast is killing me.

I have doubts that this sofftware is able to kill you. You're probably using it very, very wrong.

--

That joke done, what exactly do you mean? Why don't you use high-contrast themes on the desktop you're forwarding via VNC? Of course, you can hack the viewer to apply math to each pixel, thus apply a contrast function. It's easy when you know how to code. I probably won't implement it, though, but I happily take patches.
