Hi I too am stuck on this. I am following the guide at: havetheknowhow.com - on the page about how to Configure-the-server/Install-VNC.html
I just get the Grey screen as the OP says he did (Back in 2011 I know) - I followed the instructions to the letter from what I can tell using 14.04LTS server and just get Grey with 3 check boxes. I did try to post on the havetheknow forum but I dont think there is much action on there any more.
my xstartup file within the vnc directory looks like this:
# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
gnome-session --session=gnome-classic &
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
#x-terminal-emulator -geometry 1280x1024+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
Any ideas or help is much appreciated.
PS I am a Linux noobie, this is my first ever proper attempt at getting a server working using it. I got putty working and am now running commands on the server. I have installed VNC but can't get it to look correct on my Windows 8 Machine.[COLOR="Silver"]
