Versions (?)

setting up vnc debian way

 / Published in: Bash


This is based upon a debian guide, it seems to work well for ubuntu as well, all these steps can be performed via remote ssh (no need to access the machine).

  1. $ sudo apt-get install vnc4server
  2. # the following will require a password setup
  3. $ vnc4server -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24
  4. # the following will output something like New 'Hostname:1 (user)' desktop is Tethys:1
  5. $ vnc4server
  7. # Now all that is left is to add to ~/.vnc/xstartup, the following
  8. # The rest is the same
  9. # add the following which creates a gnome-session on startup
  10. gnome-session
