Re: more Fedora Cookbook: VNC

Here are some things to play with once you have it up.
1.
  killall twm
The window decorations vanish
2.
  startkde
Play with kde for a while, then logout
3.
 gnome-session
play with that for a while, then logout
4.
  kwin&
  kicker&
5.
  killall kwin
  twm&

Note that when you don't have an active window manager, focus follows the mouse cursor.

6.
  vncserver -kill :1

On Fedora/RHEL clones I like to configure vnc thus:
[summer potoroo ~]$ tail /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
# Use "-nohttpd" to prevent web-based VNC clients connecting.

# Use "-localhost" to prevent remote VNC clients connecting except when
# doing so through a secure tunnel.  See the "-via" option in the
# `man vncviewer' manual page.

VNCSERVERS="66:root 3:summer"
VNCSERVERARGS[3]="-geometry 1280x1024"
VNCSERVERARGS[66]="-geometry 1280x1024"

[summer potoroo ~]$

On Debian, I use this approach:
[summer potoroo ~]$ tail /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
# Use "-nohttpd" to prevent web-based VNC clients connecting.

# Use "-localhost" to prevent remote VNC clients connecting except when
# doing so through a secure tunnel.  See the "-via" option in the
# `man vncviewer' manual page.

VNCSERVERS="66:root 3:summer"
VNCSERVERARGS[3]="-geometry 1280x1024"
VNCSERVERARGS[66]="-geometry 1280x1024"

[summer potoroo ~]$
summer mail:~$ cat /etc/init.d/vnc

#set -x

function cfg()
{
    sed  </etc/vncserver.conf \

}


case "$1" in
  start)
        cfg | while read user port options
         do :
           echo Starting session for ${user} on ${port}
           eval passwdfile=~${user}/.vnc/passwd
           if [ ! -f  ${passwdfile} ] ; then
              echo Cannot start session for ${user}, no passwd file
              continue
           fi
           P=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games
[ "${user}" = "root" ] && P=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11
           su - ${user} -c "PATH=${P} vncserver ${options} ${port}"
         done

           eval passwdfile=~${user}/.vnc/passwd

              continue

       ${0} stop
       ${0} start

        echo ${0} '[start|stop]'

which I organise to run in the appropriate runlevel(s).
