I did that and I still get the "real" gnome look instead of the bluecurve fedora hat.
can it be the way I start the server?
this is how I start it.
sudo /sbin/service vncserver start
Then after it starts I do this.
Then use my loopback 127.0.0.1:1 and password *********
I get a box with the "FOOT" I wan't the fedora hat. I don't want to see someones rank appendage!
The funny thing is this did not happen to me on fedora core one.
My /etc/sysconfig/vncservers is like this.
# The VNCSERVERS variable is a list of display:user pairs.
# Uncomment the line below to start a VNC server on display :1
# as my 'myusername' (adjust this to your own). You will also
# need to set a VNC password; run 'man vncpasswd' to see how
# to do that.
# DO NOT RUN THIS SERVICE if your local area network is
# untrusted! For a secure way of using VNC, see
I did substitute myusername with my acutal username.
