I have installed ArchLinux as guest OS on VMWare running on Windows 7 host. I want to have a Gnome 3 GUI running. I want to achieve that in a way that VMWare itself does not show the GUI. Instead I want to access the full GUI using a VNC Client like RealVNC.
I followed the installation of ArchLinux VMWare from the official website, installed X, installed gnome3, installed x11vnc with all of the packages.
I do pacman -S to anything, but I can't seem to figure out how to achieve what I want.
Question: How can I access the gnome 3 UI from VNC Client? It says connection refused whenever I try to connect. e. g. Using realVnc I try to connect to 192.168.180.240:1, the error that appears is: Unable to connect to host: Connection refused. 10061
I have googled, looked into archlinux forum, asked on IRC. To no avail. If anyone can direct me to a layman article that would be great as well. I follow instructions well. Pardon me if I overlooked something in following all those articles.
