VNC question


How can I get the desktop icons to display on the remote system in VNC? I would also like access the start menu.

1)edit the vnc startup script (e.g. .vnc/xstartup)
2)change twm in the last line to Gnome-session or startkde
3)save
4)type vncserver -kill number of session - usually 0 or 1)
5)start the vncserver again on the linux box. when you remote this time, it will load the KDE GUI.
Hope this helps

PLS NOTE: I FOUND THIS TIP FROM SOMEWHERE IN LQ

bluecurve is a theme, not a window manager.
