I recently installed Ubuntu server 16.04 and tried to get vnc running with gnome-core running as the user environment. Initially after installation I only got the classic gray screen when logging into vnc and after a lot of googling I managed to get the vnc window to display a terminal window and a file explorer window. I have tried everything I could to get the screen to show the full desktop but I have now given up and realized i need to ask for help. Below is the contents of my xstartup, the log and a screen shot of vnc.

xstartup

#!/bin/sh
def
export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
unset SESSION_MANAGER
unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS

metacity &
gnome-settings-daemon &
gnome-panel &
nautilus &
gnome-terminal &
gnome-session --session=gnome-core &
