Question VNCSERVER in Fedora Core 12


Hi all,

Back in the day a users vnc xstartup file would like this:

/home/<user-name>/.vnc/xstartup

Quote:
#!/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" &
#twm &
startx &
But now in the new version of Fedora Core 12 is looks like this:

Quote:
#!/bin/sh

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" &
twm &
Can anyone tell me how to enable
Quote:
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
in the new .vnc/xstartup file running in Fedora Core 12.

Thanks,

nothing to do with Networking. Moved to Linux - newbie.

from the look of it it's already going to run it just fine, even better than the older version. The code there clearly says if it exists and is executable then execute it, and if it exists and not executable then execute it via sh.

VNC is evil btw, try NX instead.

thanks for the bump, i didn't know if this should go in newbie, server or networking... in fact if could be more a configuration of code.

on another note it does work but it doesn't export the x11 (desktop view) properly.

Looking at it this afternoon for the first time myself. What has been your experience to date?

Honestly I haven't touched it since the post, I went back to CentOS due to VMware issues with FC12. I do have a FC12 VM now but I haven't played with the remote VNC settings yet.
