I used to have a Xvnc server that was running at boot on my Ubuntu 9.04 OS and I would like to do the same with 11.10. The procedure I followed at the time was this one. There was some configuration to do in gdm which I cannot find in Ubuntu 11.10. The result is that when I connect to my computer with vncviewer it stays in a basic X screen with the simple X cursor and I get no option to log. The solution to this in prior versions of Ubuntu was to
enable remote login system -> administration -> login Window remote tab choose "same as local" (or whatever?)
What would be the equivalent configuration on 11.10? Maybe something to change in the config files of lightdm which seems to be the new display sessions manager in 11.10?
