Fedora Code 1 getting actual desktop to load

What distribution? Also, are you already logged in locally? If so, KDE and
Gnome both have a problem with having the same user logged in twice... they
just don't like that. That being said, in RedHat-based distributions
(RedHat, Fedora, CentOS [I'd imagine]) there should be an executable file in
the .vnc directory called "xstartup" which looks like this:

# Red Hat Linux VNC session startup script
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

If you don't have that, you'll likely have a problem similar to what you're

Hey guys,

I am having a hard time getting my actual liunx (GNOME / KDE) desktop to 
load. I can connect to the linux box from a remote location but it will 
only load an Xwindows type screen. How do i change the display to load 
Gnome or KDE?

Thanks in advance,
Joe D
