That was a statement. Specify the display you wish to use.


I hope this time I get you right. I plan to remotely view my VL server either via VNC or x11vnc with GUI. But right now I feel conformable manage it remote via some CLI and some GUI application. So now I don't feel a rush of using VNC.......

Back to what bigpaws was saying.  I believe that he's suggesting that you export the display prior to starting X so that the entire WM/DE will show up.  It takes the format:
export DISPLAY=hostname:displaynumber.screennumber

export DISPLAY=your.computers.ip.address:0.0

..and then 'startx' (while your linux host is in TUI).

Nothing to install; nothing to configure - should be an easy test.
