VNC session, unable to view graphis


Hi,

I am facing issue with VNC which is configured in Mint(Gloria 7). I could configure the VNC accounts and session, but after connecting to the VNC session, I am unable to view anything(graphics, desktop icons).. It just shows only black and gray lines.

Here is the steps which I followed,
installed VNCserevr,
sudo apt-get install vnc4server xinetd

Created user and created vnc session

vncserver :10 -depth 16 -geometry 1024x768

Set the vncpassword using vncpasswd command.

Also modified /home/test/.vnc/xstartup file as follows
#!/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 $HOME/.Xresources
#xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
#xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
#twm &
startx &


Can someone help on this Please

Thanks&Regards

Hi

Delete "startx &" at the last line and use:
Code:
exec gnome-session &
to use the gnome desktop
If you want to use kde instead, replace with "startkde &"

Regards
