    VNCServer In fedora Sucks


    I am at a lost, I recently switched to Fedora and the problem I have is that when I connect from another PC, all I get is a gray screen with a Terminal window. Basically, it is nothing like Red Hat..Any Suggestions would help

    Sounds more like your opening an Xvnc server. What command(s) are you using to open up the server?

    Edit the file : xstartup in the .vnc directory of the user you are loggin with.
    change the code to:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
     
    # Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
    # unset SESSION_MANAGER
    # exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
     
    [ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
    [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    xsetroot -solid grey
    xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    gnome-session &
    This will start the gnome session

    Good luck.

    By default VNC only starts X with basic interface and no WM.
