    Accepted Solution

    That's what VNC is for - accessing the GUI. If you want to get to a console, either use SSH, or from your VNC session right click on the desktop and select "open terminal".

    If you want to use VNC to connect to the physical display (monitor) of the computer check out. This work like the Windows versions.
    x11vnc .

    Hope this helps,

    check out the .vnc/xstartup file in the user's home (with which you have started vnc). It should have

    xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    twm &

    in it, to open a xterm by default. And if it is there, then you paste the logs for that perticular vnc server. You might not be having some fonts which xterm needs.
