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