vncserver


When I know I am going to use it I restart my Linux box and do not log into GUI. My question is, is there a way to keep my home pc in gui mode and then vnc into it? If so how?

I am not sure if I understand correclty, but...

If you want your PC to boot in Graphical mode, you will need to modify the /etc/inittab file by changing the default runlevel from 3 to 5.
Code:
id:5:initdefault:

No what I am saying is:

I have two computers

One is the desktop that has vncserver running

Two is the one I am using to connect to that desktop


On the desktop my gui is running

I cannot use the second computer to log into it from a remote location.

But if my desktop does not have the GUI running it will connect.

So I am asking if there is a way to set vnc up so I can connect when the GUI is up?

Read those docs, I linux there are more then one display. So you can use more then one gui at one. You can see this by pressing crtl, alt and any of the f keys, mostlly around f7 and f8 are the best. It is all explained how to do it in all those docs.
