cannot kill Xvnc process manually, won't open .pid HELP
I am running vnc on a Mac.
When I try to kill my Xvnc process it gives me this message:

Can't find file /home/(...) .vnc/iac3:9.pid
You'll have to kill the Xvnc process manually

I tried different postings' suggestions, but the message continues to be
that the .pid cannot be opened, and now I feel totally confused...

help anyone?

Karla,

The message in question normally indicates that there is no .pid file for
the desktop you're telling "vncserver" to kill - this might mean that the
desktop you're trying to kill is already gone, or is owned by a different
user, for example.
