  2. cd ~/.vnc 
  3. ls
  4. nano (or your favorite text editor.) xstartup
  5. edit anything you need to.
  6. then run: tightvncserver
  7. go to your other computer. 
  8. run a vnc viewer. And enter in your IP.

    1. In a fresh install you do not get .vnc folder. First one must run tightvncserver from prompt and set password, etc. Then you may go to step 2.
