Recommended Posts

I am going nuts! I've spent 4hrs googling and still can't make it work :(

I'm simply trying to remote desktop from a macbookpro with chicken vnc to, backtrack5 r1 running vnc4server.

I get the well documented grey screen of death and no matter what I try it doesn't work.

Can someone please share a tutorial on how to do this (with any remote desktop type software).

Thank you in advance (you're saving what little hair I have left GAH!)

I've just installed vnc4server, ran it up, set a password then connected to it from Chicken and it worked fine. It takes me into what appears to be an fvwm desktop but I connect and get a graphical interface.

I've done nothing special with the install. Running an up-to-date BT5 in VirtualBox with guest additions installed.

Can't offer any solutions but can tell you that it does work.

Option "--login" is no longer supported in this version of gnome-terminal; you might want to create a profile with the desired setting, and use the new '--profile' option

can you pls post your original "/.vnc/xstartup" file?

"error opening security policy file /etc/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy" <-- did you have to chmod any file after install?

That machine is shut down on as on the way to bed, will try to remember tomorrow.
