thank you so much. It sounds great.
Now my /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf looks like:
but after restarting lightdm (sudo restart lightdm) the port is not open:
dude at box:~$ netstat -ln | grep 5900
dude at box:~$
I also tried to reboot, but the result is the same.
do you have any suggestion? maybe some missing package?
