    I'm not sure about TightVNC, but the same effect can be had from vncserver if the account hasn't been set up right - in that case the /etc/sysconfig/vncservers file needs to be setup properly, with the VNCSERVERS and VNCSERVERARGS at the end uncommented and the right screen size inserted. It might be similar for TightVNC...

    Thanks, I managed to fixed it by editing xstartup:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    [ -r /etc/sysconfig/i18n ] && . /etc/sysconfig/i18n
    export LANG
    export SYSFONT
    vncconfig -iconic &
    unset SESSION_MANAGER
    unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
    OS=`uname -s`
    if [ $OS = 'Linux' ]; then
      case "$WINDOWMANAGER" in
        *gnome*)
          if [ -e /etc/SuSE-release ]; then
            PATH=$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin
            export PATH
          fi
          ;;
      esac
    fi
    if [ -x /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
      exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
    fi
    if [ -f /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
      exec sh /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
    fi
    [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    xsetroot -solid grey
    xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    twm &
