How to Restart VNC Servers on Ubuntu

Your desktop can be controlled from a remote client computer if you set up a VNC server on an Ubuntu system. Several different VNC host utilities exist. You will need to disable and then re-enable the utility that you're using.

      Make sure you know what VNC host program you're using. GNOME-based versions of Ubuntu use the vino server by default. KDE-based versions ("Kubuntu") use krfb.
