VNC not displaying correctly


I have VNC server installed so I can log in remotely. However, when I just attempted to remote in, nothing displays correctly. I use the least amount of colors so it's faster, but none of my icons or menu bars are displaying. Just my desktop background displays. None of the settings are funny on the viewer side. I'm guessing it's my home computer that is the problem

This worked before, up until yesterday. The only difference has been a reboot... nothing else. I haven't altered any of the settings.

I'm running Fedora 8, Gnome and completely up to date.

Not exactly sure what happened. I removed all things vnc and then reinstalled JUST vnc and vnc-server, kept the same configuration files and everything worked upon a reboot. There were a couple of suspect files that included 'vnc' in them. One of which was a vnc-reflector package. However, it all works now.
