How to: Restart vnc server for geordi

Trying to open a vnc window with geordi geordi vnc ended up with this error:

> VNC viewer could not be opened: vncviewer: ConnectToTcpAddr: connect: Connection refused

Check if vncserver 17 (default geordi session) is running:

ps -aux|grep vnc

If you see Xvnc4 :17 then the server is already running. Kill this server if it is already running.

vncserver -kill :17

Also make sure to remove the lockfile of the VNC server you just murdered:

rm -f /tmp/.X17-lock

Geordi should start the server again when it needs it.
