# Clean any existing files in /tmp/.X11-unix environment
ExecStartPre=/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/vncserver -kill %i > /dev/null 2>&1 || :'
ExecStart=/sbin/runuser -l erik -c "/usr/bin/vncserver %i"

ps -ef | grep vnc shows that it is not running.

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

xfce4 4.10.0-5.f19

How reproducible: all the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above description.

Actual results:

Additional info:
I can start the server manually by entering vncserver :1 and check with ps shows it working.

This time the error using vncviewer is "No matching securitt types".
