how to use vnc to launch gnome desktop
Thanks to this board, I figured out how to VNC from my windows computer into my linux box and vice versa. But, when I load it up, its more like a command prompt interface. I had two questions in that case
i) How do i launch my GNOME desktop from this command prompt??
ii) How can I make it so that the vnc server loads automatically on startup.
I'm a .NET developer interested in hosting java web services (one day) on my box.My end goal is to have this box running without a monitor, keyboard, etc so I can play and learn how to set up my own server (like i said, one day) and save the invesment on a new monitor and keyboard (and yes i've heard of KVMs) ;)
Thanks in advance.
i) Change your vnc startup script to start gnome with the command "gnome-session"
ii) Try adding hte vncserver command to the end of rc.local
If you want to use it as a server why do you need gnome and VNC? Just enable ssh and ssh to the box.
