I have a home server running Ubuntu Gnome 16.10. I installed the Desktop Environment to have a nicer way to configure my server, I chose Gnome because of it is lightweight enough and has the Google drive integration for backup (somewhat).
I would like to access through VNC and have the same interface. I am talking about this one.

#!/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 $HOME/.Xresources xsetroot -solid grey vncconfig -iconic & x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" & x-window-manager & gnome-session & #this line has been added based on some comments found online, but no effect whatsoever. gnome-panel & gnome-settings-daemon & metacity & nautilus &

What am I doing wrong?
