usually (in Fedora), I tunnel to a Linux machine with ssh, start vncserver, and then connect to it with vncserver viewer.
On my new Ubuntu, however, I get the output below, and when I connect I see clean blue screen but no items on it, and no right click helps either.
Any advice? - Thank you.
mark@mark-desktop:~$ vncserver :1
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "mark-desktop:1" in "add" command
New 'X' desktop is mark-desktop:1
Starting applications specified in /etc/X11/Xsession
