    Xvfb - testing display / xclock

    user12868572
      This is HP system

      Xvfb runs on port :2

      ps -ef | grep Xvfb
      oracle 5065 1 0 15:16:52 ? 0:00 /usr/bin/X11/Xvfb :2 -ac -screen 0 1024x768x8


      How can we test if xclock runs fine on this port :2 ?
      If it was Xvnc, I could use vncviewer, but as it is Xvfb how can I test this ?

          At the bottom of the Xvfb man(1) page, we see:
          Xvfb -pixdepths 3 27 -fbdir /var/tmp
              The server will listen for connections as server number 0, will
              have   the   default   screen   configuration   (one    screen,
              1280x1024x8),  will also support pixmap depths of 3 and 27, and
              will use memory mapped files in /var/tmp for the framebuffer.
          
          xwud -in /var/tmp/Xvfb_screen0
              Displays screen 0 of the server started by the preceding  example.
          You may need to install the xorg-x11-apps RPM package.
