I searched on the forum and I found this tutorial on how to login to my server via VNC. I have windows 7 and a debian server. So I followed this guide I found here: http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/540/gnome-or-kde-or-x-window-or-xfce-or-any-recommendation-for-192-ram-openvz-vps
What I did is:
apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get install tightvncserver xvt jwm
vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 -nolock -nopn -r -su -tst -lazytight
I installed VNCViewer. I typed the IP address of my server and it didn't work so I added IP:1 and I could login. But once I was there I couldn't see anything, Only a grey background with nothing.
My server is 1 year old and has a lot of stuff. So what can i do?
I hope someone from here can help me.
You may need to edit your ~/.vnc/xstartup file. It specifies what to start when X server starts.
In your current state, you can run X applications in the desired display ":1" by exporting the DISPLAY environment variable before running the app. e.g. "DISPALY=:1 firefox".
Do you have a desktop manager like GNOME or LXDE?
ajit and kliki - Thank you very much.
But I am really bad in linux. How can i see if I have a desktop manager?
I just have a server to upload my files.
Kliki you were right I installed LXDE and it's working now
