Okay, /root did not contain a .vnc folder.  I guess I assumed that I should copy
/home/vncuser/.vnc since that is where I started the vnc4server app from to create
files.  So I just ran sudo su then /usr/bin/vncpasswd and /usr/bin/vnc4server to create
the .vnc directory in root.  I then uncommented the lines and copied with cp -a
/root/.vnc /opt/ltsp/i386/root/ (skipped sudo since I was already superuser).

Rebooted client and tried sudo fl_teachertool.  Still didn't work.  I don't see
processes when selecting view, and get the following error when selecting mOnitor and

Couldn't convert 'mmeurer' to host address
Unable to connect to VNC server

"mmeurer" is the user logged into the client I want to monitor.

Well, I just turned off LDM_DIRECTX=True in lts.conf......and everything works :-)

Good catch Robert.  I guess for now I'll do some testing and see if I can just run with
X encrypted.

Thanks for the work on this.
