Run the following commands to install your X server and the vnc server




sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop OR sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop


sudo apt-get install gdm


sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start


sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg


sudo apt-get install tightvncserver



Set a VNC Password by running



sudo vncpasswd




You can now start the VNC: ( notice: Make sure you set a password and remember it when prompted | pass will have 7 character max )


Then run:



vncserver :1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16 -pixelformat rgb565




We want to configure it so the desktop environment uses GNOME. Open the startup file:



sudo nano ~/.vnc/xstartup




And add this line at the bottom:



gnome-session &




now restart your server with the reboot command



sudo reboot



Start the VNC again:



sudo vncserver :1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16 -pixelformat rgb565
