Re: VNC and fc3

That took care of it - thanks! One last thing... how do I change the default screen size/resolution?

Eucke - Below are the contents of my xstartup file. I didn't see anything specific to my user session. One thing I did notice, however, is that the script references "/etc/vnc/xstartup" which doesn't exist! In fact, there is no vnc directory under /etc.


# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
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" &
twm &

Hey Scott,

Sounds like you're hitting your first xorg vnc configuration. You will need to checkout a file called /root/.vnc/xstartup and comment out everything except the line that invokes the session you want. Also, you may want to look into adjusting your ssh session resolution. Holler back if you need help but just doing a search on your system vnc* should help you find that config file.
