Description Bob Gustafson 2004-07-06 14:29:13 EDT
Description of problem:

  It actually is _almost_ possible to start a vncserver session which
is the same as a direct connected user.

The screen itself shows different things (ok), but the two sessions
share desktop config files (this is ok), but there seems to be a lock
on Font files.

The session instantiated later has only default fonts displayed. As
soon as the earlier instantiation is ended (I boot into init level 3,
then go to 5 manually by using 'startx'), then the configured fonts
work in the later instantiation.

Just do a '/etc/init.d/vncserver stop' from a su'ed terminal window on
the direct connected session. A few milliseconds after you see the
'OK' in the terminal window, the fonts at the top of the terminal
window will change to the configured fonts.

If I set up vncserver on a separate user (user2), then both sesions
are truely independent and each has their own font lock.  However, I
would rather have both the vncserver session and the direct startx
session have the same files and the same user directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[user2@hoho2 user2]$ rpm -q vnc
[user2@hoho2 user2]$

How reproducible:

  Always - for months (I thought it was a bug and submitted bug reports)

Steps to Reproduce:

The problem or lock conflict can be seen by:

0. Configure vncserver to start up as 'user1' at boot time. Configure
/home/user1/.vnc/xstartup so that it opens the desktop.

Configure the fonts displayed in the fedora menu to something
noticably diferent from the default fonts (e.g., bigger - bolder).
(This can be done after booting once)

1. Boot again to init level 3
2. log in as the same user ('user1') on the command line login 
4. execute 'startx'  (configured to go to desktop)
5. inspect the fonts in the fedora menu - will be default fonts
6, Log in remotely to vnc desktop - should have configured fonts.
Actual results:

 see above step 5.

Expected results:

  Would be nice to see the configured fonts in both the direct startx
login and the vnc login.
