Hi Experts,

I am getting a black screen when I do a VNC to one of my gentoo servers. I am using XFCE as the Desktop enviornment.

Quote:
# equery list xfce4-meta
* Searching for xfce4-meta ...
[IP-] [ ] xfce-base/xfce4-meta-4.10:0


Here is wht I have in my xstartup file.

Quote:
#!/bin/sh

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
gnome-session &
exec startxfce4 --with-ck-launch


Have started the vnc service and gets a black screen with and X.

Please suggest if I missed something here. Appreciate all your help in advance.

Do you have consolekit daemon added to the run-level default?

I had this problem and it fixed by doing:

Code:
rc-update add consolekit default


Apparently you need consolekit to handle users' permissions, unless you handle it manually but in that case
you don't need " --with-ck-launch " with "exec startxfce4".

Hope it helps.
