Any ideas what to do about this?

BTW, uninstalling and reinstalling vnc doesn't help.

try apt-get -t unstable install xvnc

als root /etc/vnc.conf edieren:
Zeile mit "# Example $fontPath = "";" suchen
Zeilenwechsel nach Example: einfuegen, dass also die Zeile $fontPath = ""; entsteht.
Kommentar von alle folgenden Zeilen bis zu "...freefont.." (sind 8 oder so) entfernen

Voila!

login as root
Edit /etc/vnc.conf.
Search for # Example $fontPath = "";
Insert newline behind "Example:", this makes a new line: $fontPath = ""; Remove comment at all lines until "...freefont.." (these are ca. 8)

Voila!
Best regards

Thanks for the font fix. Now I get this error:

Xvnc: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot ope
n shared object file: No such file or directory

I also receive the same error when running the Netscape and Mozilla installers.

On my system the correct libs are installed, but witches and wizards are everywhere...

If you don't want to reinstall, try this:

cd /usr/lib
ls libstdc*so*
Remember the name of the listed file e.g. libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3
If no file is listed, you must reinstall, because important files are missing.

ln -s libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
This is a solution if the used subroutines have not changed from version 6.1.1 to 6.2.2.

Good luck! :D
