X server not working on new download
« on: 25 May 2012, 08:40:16 pm »

 a brief history
iceweasel stopped working and wouldnt load even after a re install of iceweasel, so i downloaded a new image and tried to install the VNC / x11 server to use via vnc. but the remote desktop software from my ubuntu only brings up a grey screen, x11 is not operating properly. Can anyone give a clue where to start, i have a little knowledge but not a lot.
im kinda guessing i need something else installed but find the answer, does anyone have a guide for installing vnc i can follow

dont know if this is the answer or whether its a permissions thing

#!/bin/sh

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
#x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
#x-window-manager &
# Fix to make GNOME work
export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
/etc/X11/Xsession

is the text above right for the contents of xstartup
