Fix the issue with vnc under Ubuntu 10.04

There are actually 2 ways of doing the fix, which I found on the internet. I take no responsibility whatsoever on this.
Please read below for details.

Method 1

apt-get install x11vnc

Start vncserver : (where display_number is your display : 1 for first, 2 for second, …)
connect via tight vnc to IP: (or IP:590x) – where x is your display number

Start /usr/bin/myth-control-center from command line

Enable VNC
Add vnc password
reboot system

connect via tight VNC on port 0


Method 2

Moved System|Preferences|Appearance|Visual Effects from Normal all the way down to None. VNC works.
