Unable to login via VNC with any other account than root


Hello everybody,

I'm new to openSUSE but I'm liking it a lot so far. I'm just having a small issue with the VNC service. I set up VNC through YaST under Remote Administration. I connect to the server using port 5901 and I get access to the login screen. However, I can only access the desktop if I login with the root account. If I use any other account, it loads for a second and then just shows me the login manager's background and it hangs there. I tried to change the user in xinetd but not luck.

Anybody got a clue?

Thanks,

Simon

You should try to start the vnc server as the user you want to use it as.
