Re: [vox-tech] vnc terminal only

Well I was hopeful the solution made sense, but not quite.
Now instead of a greenish background and a terminal window I can move, I have a grey background and the terminal window is stuck.

Here's what I've got:


xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
startgnome &
#x-window-manager &

I commented out the x-window part and added the startgnome.
Next I tried to comment out the x-terminal part.
Then I uncommented the x-window-manager and put it before the startgnome.

No luck and more ideas?

The default window manager is set as twm.  This was the best window
manager 1985 had to offer, and it hasn't gotten a lot fancier since
then.  It's advantage is that it's small, and very lightweight.  If
you want a fancier window manager, what you need to do is edit your
$HOME/.vnc/xstartup script.  Mine looks like:


xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
startgnome &
# startkde &

The & after startgnome (to put it in the background) is important...
though I can't remember why right now.
