I have 12.04 LTS installed and I am trying to get VNC to work. I want to be able to connect to existing sessions, and have it start on boot. I followed this guide and have left a comment to try and fix my problems but no dice. I have also tried all solutions I have found on google, including the one here, but I could not get it to work (I am missing something easy I am sure).
When I connect to the VNC session I get a grey screen with three checkboxes:
Accept clipboard from viewers Send clipboard to viewers Send primary selection to viewers
Here is my xstartup:
#!/bin/sh # Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop: unset SESSION_MANAGER # exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc gnome-session -session=gnome-classic & [ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources xsetroot -solid grey vncconfig -iconic & #x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" & #x-window-manager &
I have also edited my to include:
/usr/bin/vncserver -geometry 1024x768
It does not start on boot, but when I run the command it starts, but I get the grey screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
