Step 6: Configure the xstartup file

Finally we must first tell the vncserver to start kde. To do this we edit the vnc startup file 'xstartup' to read as follows. Note the file is located at '~/.vnc/xstartup'. This file is created when you first run the service.

exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
startx &

Step 7: Fix the screen resolution

Edit "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"

Section "extensions"
Option "composite" off
