Question


I have installed VNC on my Caldera Server. It works, but it only allows me a very plain Xfree session, how do I tell it to use KDE or Gnome?

Thanks,

Paul LaBrier

X Configuration

Make a file, $HOME/.desktop, and put the string "KDE" or "GNOME" in it depending on the user's preferred X manager.

For information on this procedure and more on how X works see:
http://ctdp.tripod.com/os/linux/howl...rks/index.html
See the section 34, "How X works" under the header "How to set up X managers for different users". It explains how to set it up for various users and how to set the system settings.


Also the Linux User's guide at:
http://ctdp.tripod.com/os/linux/usersguide/index.html
Item 42 describes the installation and use of VNC with X.

Let me know if this helps and how much.

Thanks
