vnc on FC5 want kde desktop - first question
Just registered with this site today and was invite - "Why not make your first post today by introducing yourself in our LQ Member Intro forum or asking your first question." Nice touch. Thanks! I cannot find the "Member Intro forum" so I guess I will have to ask a question. And, yes I have searched for the answer, found the "answer" here and several other places, applied the answer and still have the issue...
I am connecting from an XP box to a newly installed Fedora Core 5 box (taylor9) with vnc. I have the Xvnc server installed and running on the FC5 box, vncpasswd set etc. The XP vnc client connects like a dream to the gnome desktop over my 100MB network. My default desktop at the FC5 console is kde. So, I have edited my .vnc/xstartup thusly:
# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
[ -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" &
restarted the vncserver successfully and connect to the gnome desktop!
I have tried commenting various combinations of lines in this file and have only managed to get an occasional gnome error message when I first connect.
The service vncserver restart command (as root) produces the following log results:
Sun Jul 16 15:07:09 2006

Window manager warning: Log level 32: could not find XKB extension.
** (nm-applet:3787): WARNING **: <WARNING> nma_dbus_init (): nma_dbus_init() could not acquire its service. dbus_bus_acquire_service() says: 'Connection ":1.67" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo" due to security policies in the configuration file'
Despite the warning, gnome connects fine from the XP vnc client. So, I must be missing something. Any advice greatly appreciated.
