Icons missing from desktop with VNC and gnome-session
Okay, need a little help here.

Running RedHat 7.2, and vncserver

My xstartup looks like this:


xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
gnome-session &

Now I use the VNC client from Windows 2000 to connect. The display comes up and all seems fine, except for 3 abnormalities I have noticed:
[list=1][*]Right click on the desktop does nothing[*]Launching the "Start Here" from the panel seems to do nothing, but when I look at my X console running on the desktop (I run runlevel 5, and start my X at the beginning), nautilus has launched there instead of my gnome-session inside of VNC[*]There are no desktop icons in the gnome-session in VNC[/list=1]

To clarify, I am running the graphical login at linux boot (gnome window manger). So I already have an X instance running. So it seems my xstartup file may be off since it isn't correctly displaying the desktop.

Any help appreciated,

Does the machine need to be in runlevel 5? Try putting the machine in run level 3 and then see if everything opens right? Just curious?
