I have an "okay" classic-style (no lens, etc) desktop running on an Ubuntu 16.04 server.
ubuntu-desktop is installed, and I have several desktops available, such as ubuntu.desktop, gnome.desktop, and gnome-classic.desktop.
I would like to run the new gnome that I have on my local desktop, which is Gnome 3 (also perhaps it is called Gnome with the Awesome Desktop).
How can I do that? Below is the xstartup file that I have now:
#!/bin/sh [ -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 & #export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 unset SESSION_MANAGER unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS gnome-session --session=awesome --disable-acceleration-check & gnome-panel & gnome-settings-daemon & metacity & nautilus & pulseaudio -k pulseaudio -D
I've tried all the info at: How to change to other desktop environment on VNC sessions?
