    Starting Gnome from a shell

    I travel a lot, but keep in touch with my Ubuntu machines via putty and vncserver. Occasionally I have to reboot, or restart Gnome. So, when I do that I lose my connection and can reconnect to a shell. However, Gnome has not started as I'm not at home to log in. How do I get X and Gnome up from a shell???

    Thanks in advance,

    Vic

    If X is already running in your computer then you can simply start the vncserver from the shell using the cmd $vncserver, then you can use vnc client to connect to your computer.

    If gnome session or X is not started already then try the following command before starting vncserver
    1) To start gnome
    $ sudo gdm start

    or

    $ gnome-session& <<-- For this you need X to be running.

    2)To start X
    $ startx
