TightVNC Server

Ok, there are news: After a reboot, the error messages from "startkde &" are
different and Gnome works ("gnome-session &") fine!

Here are some error messages:
Could not register with D-Bus aborting.
startkde: shutting down
can not contact kdeinit4
running shutdown scripts

I'm glad that Gnome is working now. But actually I'd prefer KDE.
So, any ideas what to do?

Thanks in advance !

I often wonder that :-). One of the things you can do is
a ps to see what you are running when logged into a
normal session directly on the console, but it is hard
to know which of the things you'll see there are started
by gnome-session and which are started by gdm.

Weird. That sounds like the error you'd get with no dbus
session, which is exactly what the code was trying to

I just tried to get vnc to start a gnome session, and couldn't
do it, so just dbus doesn't appear to be enough. Perhaps
some of the things in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc and
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/ are where some essential things
get started? I see the dbus stuff in there, maybe all the
other things are needed as well?

I normally just run a copy of the fvwm window manager with
a few of my own custom apps, so I don't really remember if
I ever got a complete gnome or kde session to work in vnc.
