Sorry Liam,
I am on another (google) list and there attachments are permitted. But 
if necessary I can upload to a site but I think you know the problem. 
Maybe stupid question: how can I see which desktop is used as I run the 
system remote. Strange enough ssh -Y (or -X) works without a problem but 
I think that doesn't use the desktop.
As I have problems with the video driver (I have a VGA monitor and the 
output is only HDMI) so I use an HDMI-VGA adaptor and that is maybe the 
problem but with my raspberry Pi 2 I have no problem with that adaptor. 
It is a pity as I want to use it as server without X but for control vnc 
is easier that ssh.
The beauty is that it only uses 5 Watt but has all possibilities (a.o. 4 
USB-ports and 1 Ethernet) so it is ideal to use it as a server.
May be you have some suggestions of how to use vnc without desktop.
