Server seems to ignore my specified display settings

So I've fired up a linux box to play with (Mint) and it will let me connect just fine, however it won't respect the settings I have in my "xstartup" file as follows:


# Red Hat Linux VNC session startup script
#exec /usr/bin/startkde
exec /usr/bin/startxfce4 --geometry 1680x1050

If I go with 1920x1080, I have to scroll my linux desktop up and down, and I really don't want to do that!

Any help here??

  • Hi John,

    Which version of VNC Server are you using?

    Please note that -geometry is usually passed to VNC Server as part of the vncserver command rather than to the desktop environment in xstartup
