Xubuntu Resumable Remote Sessions
I have been trying to use this HOWTO with varying success...
I seem to run into a similar problem quite often.
I logged in yesterday (over the internet) and got the gdm login screen, logged in, great! full control on display:1. I could log out (using the button for logging out inthe remote window) and log back in later. or I could lock the screen and close the vncviewer.
But sometimes (well quite often) something seems to get upset and I can't get the viewer to open up again. I try the viewer, get prompted for a vnc password, but then get an error:
The connection closed unexpectedly.
And nothing I do now seems to let me get back...
So I tried the following:
thinking, this would kill the vnc session, starting afresh and I could log in...but it makes no difference. The only way I have solved this is by rebooting my server, but obviously this is not a nice option.
jonrserv@jcrserver2:~$ vnc4server :1
A VNC server is already running as :1
jonrserv@jcrserver2:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd stop
[sudo] password for jonrserv:
* Stopping internet superserver xinetd [ OK ]
jonrserv@jcrserver2:~$ sudo killall Xvnc
Xvnc: no process killed
jonrserv@jcrserver2:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd start
* Starting internet superserver xinetd [ OK ]
Question is basically, why is it doing it and how do I rectify it when it happens? How do I kill it off so its like the first time I am trying to log in?
Hope you can help!
