default VNC fix
Thanks for the two replies.
I added "gnome-session &" to the bottom of the .vnc/xstartup file, with no luck. I killed the vncserver and restarted it, but it still defaulted to the KDE desktop.
As for changing the window manager, I'm not sure how that will help. I'm not doing any logging in to the actual desktop through VNC. Once the vncserver is started, that's when KDE is coming up. So when I login to the connection, KDE is already running - ready and waiting. It looks like I need to change the default for the entire system to Gnome from KDE so that when the default is run by VNC automatically, it will run Gnome instead of KDE.
Thanks again, Rosooki.
