    223       The user specific configuration files of vncserver resides
    224       in the <filename class='directory'>.vnc</filename> directory in the user's
    225       home directory.  The <filename>xstartup</filename> file in that
    226       directory is a script specifying what commands to be run
    227       when a VNC desktop is started.  If no  <filename>xstartup</filename> file
    228       exists, <command>vncserver</command> will try to start an xterm in a twm
    229       session.  An example <filename>xstartup</filename> would be:
     239      The default installation of this package makes some changes in the way it
     240      is used.  The vncserver perl script is placed in /usr/libexec and the
     241      server is designed to be run via a systemd style .service file or the
     242      vncsession script as the root user.  The man page for vncserver is placed
     243      in section 8 of the man pages.  The new procedures require a display
     244      manager to be installed.
     245    </para>
     246
     247    <para>
     248      To restore the previous behavior, download the optional files listed
     249      above and place the perl script into the /usr/bin directory.  Ensure it
     250      is executable (chmod a+x) by a non-privileged user. Put the downloaded
     251      man page in /usr/share/man/man1.  These files are from the
     252      tigervnc-1.10.1 version of the package. 
     253    </para>
     254   
     255    <para>
     256      Using the previous procedures, the user specific configuration files of
     257      vncserver reside in the <filename class='directory'>.vnc</filename>
     258      directory in the user's home directory.  The
     259      <filename>xstartup</filename> file in that directory is a script
     260      specifying what commands to run when a VNC desktop is started.  If no
     261      <filename>xstartup</filename> file exists, <command>vncserver</command>
     262      will try to start an xterm in a twm session.  An example
     263      <filename>xstartup</filename> would be:

    237271    <para>
    238272      The <filename>xstartup</filename> file must be executable for the
    239       commands in it to be executed, so run
    240       <command>chmod a+x ~/.vnc/xstartup</command>.
    241     </para>
    242 
     273      commands in it to be executed, so run <command>chmod a+x

     275    </para>
     276
     277    <para>
     278      Set up the vnc passwd with <command>vncpasswd</command>. Then
     279      server can then be started with the <command>vncserver</command>
     280      command.. 
     281      See the man pages in section 1 for the vncserver for the server
     282      system and vncviewer for the remote system.
