VNC Server / KDE problem


Hello all, when I started VNC, I am only prompted a windows instead of a KDE GUI I am used to work with. Anyone have a quick way to setup VNC server so I can see the KDE environment?

I have done a search, most ppl are using gnome. They said to add a line "exec /etc/X11/init/initrc" in the startup file. I did. chmod a+x to xstartup file, i did. But I still wont get the KDE GUI.

P.S. This may be a silly problem please bare with me I am new to Linux.

Thanks!

you dont run it
edit this file

/root/.vnc/xstartup
and comment out every line with '#" except for the first line it clears the resource
then add the line above int he last line of the file

save, reboot

Is this right?

Code:
#!/bin/sh

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

# [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
# xsetroot -solid grey
# vncconfig -iconic &
# xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
# twm &

. /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients

It is fine and add another line

startkde &
and make sure you give space next to .(period) in . /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients

#!/bin/sh

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

# [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
# xsetroot -solid grey
# vncconfig -iconic &
# xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
# twm &

. /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients
