One of my side projects has involved playing around with the camera on a Raspberry Pi and I realised that it would be handy to see the camera output. After finding out that VNC tight server would do the job, the first step was to install it on the Raspberry Pi:
sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
With that done, I had to launch it:
vncserver :1 -geometry 800x600 -depth 24
The first time you set it up, you should be asked to give it a new password. You’ll need to run the command above each time you restart your Raspberry Pi.
Finally, to run this from my Mac, I can go to Finder > Go > Connect to servers and put in the command below (change the username and ip address).
