Okay now. So far, I've managed to finally get a non-root KDE desktop set
to 800x600 - 32 Bit depth. I did indeed have to log in as a normal user
and then start the vncserver with
vncserver geometry 800x600 depth 32
So I am making some headway on this project. Now, here is what I am
ultimately shooting for.
1: Have vncserver load automatically at boot time with the above
parameters. (800x600 is plenty suitable for my needs here) I do not want
to have to ssh in to the system first to start the server
2: When I run my vnc client to access the vnc server, be presented with
the greeter, so that I can log in as any user and select any installed
window manager (GNOME, KDE, or Enlightenment)
3: When I close out my window manager, I want to be taken back to the
greeter, so that I can either log in as another user, or shut down the
4: And while I am at it, I want to be able to have sound capabilities
for non-root users. Right now, only root can have sound.
Also, where is the .vnc directory located? I can't seem to locate it,
even though I'm pretty sure it is there somewhere.
