anywho, i go to go back into it today and when i boot in
tightvncserver -geometry 1024x800
warning localhost:1 is taken because of /tmp/.x1-lock
remove file if no x server on localhost:1
new x desktop is on localhost:2
tightvncserver -kill :1 (2 or 3 or whatever new ones i make kill sucessfully)
youll have to kill the xtightvnc process manually
How do I get out of this? I cant find the .x1-lock file it mentions to delete, and theres no way to kill :1 (at least that I know about)
I was reading that this happens when ubunutu isnt shut down properly (didnt know just using exit didnt do the trick) so now I cant vnc into my ubuntu anymore and only have the terminal fun****ion!
ps, ive read through all 25 pages of
which mentions the lock file problem, but i dont understand from the post how to resolve that, and having less then 10 posts to this forum i cant post the question there.
edit. found it reading over my post, it was case sensitive: rm /tmp/.X1-lock and rm /tmp/.X1-unix/X1 for anyone who finds this psot wioth same problems
