gnome-session & vnc


ok, so I want to use gnome through vnc. so instead of the default 'twm &' in the xstartup script, I put in 'gnome-session &' as I have found in other threads. The problem is that it gives me this error in the logfile:

gnome-session: you're already running a session manager

and it doesn't startup gnome for me. I've tried running gnome after connecting up to the vncserver and getting the command-prompt box, but it gives me the same error. Here is my full xstarup script:

#!/bin/sh

[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
gnome-session &

If anybody can explain what's going on, and how to fix it I'd be very greatfull, please try to cope with me, for I am a =p... oh, and if there's any other info I should include let me know.

Gnome doesn't like having two session open at once... however, you can set up a script that will let you login by inserting this BEFORE your "gnome-session" line:

unset SESSION_MANAGER

and then your last line will be gnome-session.
