How can I start my desktop session via telnet or vnc?
 
Hello!

How can I start my desktop session on :0.0 remotely?

After system startup I can connect via telnet and ssh to system. But x11vnc doesnt start when i try to connect while the system is showing the desktop login screen. Only after logging in locally, x11vnc starts up correctly and i can connect with a vnc viewer. But I cant (or dont want to) do anything locally after session exit / system restart.

I assume x11vnc doesnt start up, because the x11 session is not "really" running (is the login screen an x11 session at all?).

So maybe the solution is not changing some x11vnc settings or another x11 server but to start the desktop session via command prompt? Any hints are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I can create a new "screen" with vnc on :1.0 remotely. But this is not what i want.
