View Full Version : Remote Desktop

20th April 2006, 09:20 PM
I installed X11 on my remote computer, and it seems to work except one thing. I login to that computer through ssh and type "vncserver" and it makes a session at :1, I can connect to the session however it doesn't show me the desktop, it's sort of half gui-half terminal. What happens is theres a terminal window that comes up, and from there you can type in the program you would like and it'll open it up for you in the sceen.

Anyways, how would I get it so that I would view my desktop instead? Kaleb

You have to uncomment the
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
in your /home/$user/.vnc/xstartup file
