VNC GUI issue.


Hello Team,

I had good solution from this forum

Am using CentOS release 6.4 (Final)and installed vncserver but while connecting vnc viewer its getting only blank screen, please check below configurations.

# vi .vnc/xstartup
#!/bin/sh
[ -r /etc/sysconfig/i18n ] && . /etc/sysconfig/i18n
export LANG
export SYSFONT
vncconfig -iconic &
unset SESSION_MANAGER
unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
OS=`uname -s`
if [ $OS = 'Linux' ]; then
case "$WINDOWMANAGER" in
*gnome*)
if [ -e /etc/SuSE-release ]; then
PATH=$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin
export PATH
fi
;;
esac
fi
if [ -x /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
fi
if [ -f /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
exec sh /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
fi
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &

you'd replace the use of twm with gnome, kde etc. However I would VERY strongly suggest ditching VNC as it's awful. Instead try the free client version of NoMachine at nomachine.org, which will handle your choice of desktop so much more nicely, securely and quickly.

Amazingly, putting "how to add gnome to a centos 6 server" into Google pulls up lots. Can you not access Google where you are?
