How to configure the Ubuntu remote desktop function to work as a "normal" VNC server?
 
VNCserver allows us to have the desktop environment of the server machine on a remote machine, without interfering the server side desktop.

In Ubuntu 7.04, there is a default "remote desktop" utility, which have similar functions, but will interfere the user's desktop on the server machine, like the situation of VNC in MS windows.

How can I configure it to work like an "ordinary" VNC server?

i dont know wether it will work in Ubuntu, cos i use Enterprise, but these are the steps i take to use the vnc server. remember to make sure you have selected all VNC prefertences in installation...



Preferences > remote desktop > allow other to view desktop & control desktop & set password

Vncserver :5900

Gedit /root/.vnc/xstartup

Add/edit these lines:

!/bin/sh
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ]
&& xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
Xsetroot –solid grey
Exec gnome-session &


Done
