Bug#503390: directvnc: assumed documentation error in README.Debian

Package: directvnc
Version: 0.7.5-8+b1
Severity: minor

In /usr/share/doc/directvnc/README.Debian, the following is

  "The display size is limited to 640x480."

This seems not to be correct, cause I couldn't find any
maloperations using other resolutions (e.g. 1024x768)
until now. This does not mean, I fully tested it, so
I might be wrong, but other resolutions seem to work
correctly using Xvnc4. The main problem for me was to
find out, where the resolution configuration can be done.

directvnc is based on directfb. This fact is althoght
mentioned in the man page of directvnc. Not mentioned
is the importance of libdirectfb for configuring
directvnc by creating the library specific configuration


or the program-specific configuration file


It would be helpfull to mention in the documentation,
that directvnc is based on directfb and so many of the
configuration stuff can be done in /etc/directfbrc and
/etc/directfbrc.directvnc and that one should read the
manpage of directfbrc (5) in the libdirectfb-bin
package for further configuration options.
