VNC - the screen is a grey checked color


Hello, and thanks in advance for any help!!! I am going crazy on this one.
I should be able to figure it out but... for some reason... not today LOL

I have three suse boxes that I am running two of them are great I can VNC into them and I get the full KDE GUI and things are wonderful.

I installed the SUSE 9 server and finally got imanager to work so I don't want to re do the install but I would like to VNC into it with the GU.

When I do connect I get a screen at the top that says "nobody's x11 desktop" and then the screen is just pure grey mesh is the best way to describe it.

Is there some setting I didn't do correctly? On the other boxes I have used the remote administrator in YAST to set it up and all works. Why this time is it not?

Thank you very much!

Robert,

looks like you didn't read the documentation or the xstartup file... please search this site for details of what vncserver is, and how to make it look pretty.
