x11vnc is a VNC server application that enables one to interact with real X11 displays. Unlike other VNC alternatives (e.g. TigerVNC) which create extra X11 desktop sessions displayed for remote control, x11vnc shows in real time the existing X11 display.
- base installation of X.Org
- an X11 desktop environment/window manager

Install the x11vnc package from the community repository
Start X either through your preferred Display Manager or by using the startx command.

Now connect using your preferred VNC viewer.
