I have one remote Linux box, Boinc is running as daemon here. I can connect to this box over VNC and correctly display Boinc But what can I do to display the application's graphics? I've read about some ways for Windows' service install, but not yet for Linux.

I think it doesn't matter if it's running as a daemon on Linux. Can you access BOINC Manager? Is the Show graphics button clickable? (and does it do anything?)

Sorry, I forgot somehow to write. My text should be:

I can connect to this box over VNC and correctly display Boinc Manager, but when I click "Show graphics", nothing happens. What can I do to display the application's graphics?

In my Linux host's Pirate apps logs, there is "graphics was never initialized" or so.

More exactly "worker: graphics NEVER initialzed!" here and "Graphics are disabled due to configuration..." on Rosettas.
