VNC Windows to LinuxMint

Postby berbo » Thu Sep 13, 2007 4:47 pm

Hi

From my home PC (with LinuxMint) I can connect to my work PC (with Windows XP Pro) without any problem.

On the reverse side (XP --> LinuxMint) I can have a connection but only a text one (like Terminal). I would like to have a graphical display; so from my XP I would like to see my LinuxMint's display like I can see it at home.

I had try to modify my /.vnc/xstartup like I saw recommendations on the Net. Without any success.

I would appreciate if someone can tell me what to do ?

Thanks in advance

===================================
My original /.vnc/xstartup was:
===================================
#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
# unset SESSION_MANAGER
# 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 &

===================================
After a lot of try, here is my /.vnc/xstartup
But it does not work. I have always a terminal from the client
===================================
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
gnome-session &

I don't use vnc so I can't give any personal advice,
I found this elongated description
http://www.movingtofreedom.org/2007/02/ ... gnu-linux/
and even if it says Edgy it goes on to Feisty (Cassandra)

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
