Step by step installing VNC Server on Ubuntu 14.04

Linux, Ubuntu, 2015-06-16 23:24:50 UTC

Server side 

1. Update Ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade



2. Install some package; Gnome, XFCE, Firefox and Nano

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-core xfce4 firefox nano



3. Installing VNC Server

$ sudo apt-get install vnc4server



4. Run VNC Server for the first time

$ vncserver

You will require a password to access your desktops.

Password:
Verify:
Password too long - only the first 8 characters will be used
xauth:  file /home/your_name/.Xauthority does not exist

New 'your_name:1 (user_name)' desktop is your_name:1

Creating default startup script /home/your_name/.vnc/xstartup
Starting applications specified in /home/your_name/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/your_name/.vnc/your_name:1.log

Above command create a file .vnc/xstartup and you need to terminate VNC Server

$ vncserver -kill :1



5. Open xstartup file

$ sudo nano .vnc/xstartup



xstartup look like below and you need to add startxfce4

#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
# unset SESSION_MANAGER
# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

startxfce4 &

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
x-window-manager &



6. Start your VNC Server

$ vncserver -geometry 1024x768





Client side

1. Start your client. For this example, I use SSL/SSH VNC Viewer


2. Don't forget to Use SSH option and click Connect

3.  Type your password in terminal shown

 
 
 
4. You can see the XFCE Desktop
