Install VNC

By | 28th December 2015

This is the last step in setting a remote development environment using Aptana Studio. Install TightVNCServer

> sudo apt-get install tightvncserver

Start the server in the required resolution and colour depth

> vncserver -geometry 1280x1024 -depth 24

When the VNC server is no longer required, kill the server

> ps -ef | grep vnc

> vncserver -kill :1

Please note -depth should be set to 24 for it to work correctly.
