This depends on the linux distro you are using. Many current distro's do
provide click-click-finish install/config of vnc. For Ubuntu (using the
- System -> Administration -> LoginWindow. There at the tab 'remote' you
can configure what you like. for fresh logins.
- System -> Preferences -> RemoteDesktop you can configure a way to take
over the current desktop.
Be noted, these might conflict as vnc defaults to use the same port (5900).
On unix (including linux) there are way more ways to use vnc than on
msWindows. It is even fairly easy to create a complete vnc-driven
terminal-server machine. Describe what you want and what distro you use,
then the answers can be much more tailored to your needs.
