How to configure VNCserver for accessing linux machine in windows system


Dear All

I have a installed fedora 8 in my system, and want access my linux desktop in windows xp machine through a vncserver, I have installed vncserver, when I executed the vncserver in gnome terminal, it gives me the

New 'localhost.localdomain:2 (akram)' desktop is localhost.localdomain:2

in my windows xp machine when I try to access my linux GUI session, its only gives me the terminal screen session

when I restart my vncserver service, it gives me the error message that"display is not configured".

I also edit my xstartup file using
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" & gnome-session &

but still the problem is same, plz guide me how to configure the vncserver for access full interactive gnome desktop session.


Thanks in Advanced

Regards,

Akram

Hello,

In the user's home directory (the user you are using to connect to vncserver) there should be a directory .vnc with an xstartup file in it.

Put the following in that file and it should do the trick:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
 unset SESSION_MANAGER
 exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
startx &
The last line tells the terminal to which you are connecting to launch startx and you'll get your GUI.

Kind regards,

Eric

No problem Akram. I'm glad I'm able to help someone since I myself have received help on various occasions. Just keeping the 'chain' of help going where I can.

Kind regards,

Eric
