VNC as user not root? fedora 17
 
Alright well I've been around a bunch of threads, on a bunch of sites.. here are a few

anyways, with "vncserver" command I can get a vnc running as root fine, and the geometry stuff, depth etc doesn't work at all.. but that's not my problem

when I try to run as any user (any user.. any of them) I just get a black screen, I assume this was permission error/problem?

I'm trying to get this to work on a VM just for testing it out, I'm doing a fresh install of fedora if anyone can help me out exactly how to do this, it's fedora 17 with gnome if that matters.. thanks for any help.


seems like I need to give permissions to allow users to start X, no idea how to.. anyone got a few commands? thanks

Does the vnc file for the user specify starting X, or anything. You might simply be lacing the command in the .vnc file in their home directory.
