pulldown menu


I am using vncviewer to access a server running red hat version 5
if I use the video terminal attached to the server
I get certain drop down menu options like Application/Places/system
the Application has a pull down menu one of which is Accessories which further has
Terminal / Text editor / calculator among other options
I list only a few of the many options available

Now if I use vncviewer from another desktop running Windows XP to access the server - If I run a command say xclock
I do get the graphical clock on my windows desktop
How should I get the full menu with all the options like Terminal / Text editor / calculator

Is there a command to run to get this ?

On the server have a look at the file ~/.vnc/xstartup It should look kind of like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
 unset SESSION_MANAGER
 exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -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" &
startx &

The two lines

unset SESSION_MANAGER
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

were commented

I uncommented them and now things are fine

Thanks a lot
