Can't get gnome-session to work in vncserver

I have followed the instructions at TightVNC (VNC Xvnc) on openSUSE as Client or Server (Remote Desktop Connections). I have also successfully configured vnc servers to use both Gnome and KDE on many machines; this is the first time I’ve had trouble.

Here is my xstartup file:


-r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
#xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title “$VNCDESKTOP Desktop” &
/usr/bin/gnome &

And here is the output from the log file:

Couldn’t open RGB_DB ‘/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb’

This is how my file looks in Gnome on openSUSE 11.3:


#xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
#xsetroot -solid grey
#xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title “$VNCDESKTOP Desktop” &
#twm &
/usr/bin/gnome &

So try this:

/usr/bin/gnome &

Hi, I have similar issue on SLES 12.1, however applying above fixes did not help me. Looks like my xstartup file was not used when logging in vi VNC

This is openSUSE forum not the SUSE fourm
