I repeat what another poster said: why on *earth* are you talking about
VNC? Ardour can be run with its display on another machine without VNC.
VNC is technology to provide remote control to an entire desktop via a
hack. X Window is a technology to separate the display from the
computational engine and is absolutely not a hack. Forget VNC. FreeNX,
which is vaguely X related, is definitely worth looking at, but its
benefits would not really be apparent in this situation, i think.

I repeat, and will keep repeating, forget VNC, just use X the way it was
intended to be used.
