Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a desktop PC I want to remote desktop to, I also like the concept of virtual displays, so no one can see what I'm doing as I do it unless they connect to the display (as opposed to the standard vino setup where whatever I do would be shown on any real displays attached to the PC).

The problem is I that when I connect to it, the desktop seems broken, the theme goes gray (windows 95 style) and some icons are even missing (see image below).

My xstartup script looks like:

$ cat .vnc/xstartup 
#!/bin/sh

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
#x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
#x-window-manager &
# Fix to make GNOME work
#export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
#/etc/X11/Xsession
#exec ck-launch-session startxfce4
startxfce4 &
#xfce4-session &

Please help,
