I followed this steps to install and configure vnc remote acceess for the gnome desktop on centos 7 :

yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"
yum install tigervnc-server
adduser username
passwd username
su username
vncserver

Note: it may be xvncserver on some systems

cd .vnc
nano xstartup

Note: any text editor can be used for example VI

change twm to gnome-session

Save file and reboot.


Once logged in

su username -c "/usr/bin/vncserver"

Connect to your ip and port 5901


Q 1 :But when enter the desktop do not find firefox

I tried to install in terminal but there are error

Q 2 : How install "apt-get" in centos 7

apt-get is not on centos7, instead it is called yum package manager.


Looks like you want

yum install firefox

A c7 server shows me:

yum search firefox

Please contact support as that is a centos6 mirror, and you mentioned centos7 being the host node. There must be an error in your yum.conf file.

When I bought my first PC I had to call someone to install Firefox. Lately I can do it by myself thanks to this forum. I have learnt to do many things using my computer. I like being online very much.
