Can you please tell me where can I find the source for the VNC server for Ubuntu?

Which VNC server are you using? – BloodPhilia Jun 24 '10 at 16:40

This should do it:

apt-get source vnc-server

This will download the source for the vnc-server package into the current directory.

Update for Hardy:

apt-get source tightvncserver


apt-get source vnc4server

Just depends on which server you prefer to use.
