i recently installed xbmcbuntu, works great alot simpler to setup compared to media portal.
i would like to use hippo remote as opposed to the web interface but in order for it to work with xbmc i need to have remote desktop sharing or vnc running, i installed krfb and managed to get remote desktop sharing enabled when logged into xbmcbuntu and if i log out and back into xmbc it works fine however i want to enable it so it runs on startup
i can't figure out how to do this, i'm only just learning ubuntu, i installed gnome-session-manager and added krfb to the startup up but this won't work i'm assuming because the xbmc is using a different session, i also tried to add the application to the following directory /etc/xdg/autostart/ but still no luck
any help would be greatly appreciated.
vnc or rdp for xbmcbuntu

easiest solution would be to run xbmc on top of the gnome session instead of the stand-alone session.
