Tiger VNC Server on Fedora 16

Hello,

I installed tigervnc-server using systemd method exactly as mentioned here:

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/...verOnLinux.php

Now when I connect using a VNC client I get this:



I do not use gnome I use KDE and gnome desktop is not fully installed.
Here is my xstartup file:

Quote:
#!/bin/sh

vncconfig -iconic &
unset SESSION_MANAGER
unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
OS=`uname -s`
if [ $OS = 'Linux' ]; then
case "$WINDOWMANAGER" in
*gnome*)
if [ -e /etc/SuSE-release ]; then
PATH=$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin
export PATH
fi
;;
esac
fi
if [ -x /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
fi
if [ -f /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
exec sh /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
fi
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
twm &
I have searched throughout and came to know that I need to replace twm & with startkde & to fix the problem, but I get the same thing after restarting the vnc server.

Any idea how to fix this?

Never mind guys I got it working for KDE. Used xstartup script from this link:

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...NC_Server.html

and replaced:

Quote:
exec gnome-session
With:

Quote:
exec startkde
Problem Solved
