Why am I not getting login screen after logout from vnc session ?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Is it possible to allow 'logout/login' from VNC remote session ?
  • VNC is configued and working with Gnome without any problems. The only problem is that when a user connect with VNC, Gnome comes up and it is always logged in with specific user on the server.
  • If the user logout from vnc session, everything disappears except the Gnome wallpaper.
