i have a SUSE 9.0 box. I am running vncviewer 3.3.7 server on the box. i compiled it from source code. i am running KDE on the box. everything is working fine. i am able to start the server and connect. the problem is when i connect it only gives me the terminal window it doesnt bring up the KDE desktop. i have searched through the other posts and looked for how to solve this but couldnt find anything.
i changed twm& to startkde & but that didnt work either. does anybody know what i need to change in my xstartup script to be able to bring up the KDE desktop through vncviewer?
your right i shouldnt have been running it as root. i killed that server and started another server with a regular user account. when i connect now i see the kde desktop in the background but the terminal window still shows up in the front. how can i get rid of that?
for some reason it was starting a console window when i started kde on the machine. i created a new user, did what you said and it worked. i am not sure why the other username is starting a console on bootup. thanks for the help
