I am trying to install tigervnc-server from a bash script with a password under Centos 6. I want to do this because I want to automate VPS installations. Does anybody know how to do this? Tried adding two lines in the script with the password because it requires you to enter a password 2 times but it didnt worked, it said command not found and I didnt got past it.

    You should say exactly what you tried that didn't work. – RalfFriedl Aug 22 '18 at 18:46

The vncpasswd command can be used to encrypt a password so that you don't have to specify it manually. Just use the -f option and feed the password on stdin.


echo "mypassword" | vncpasswd -f > $HOME/.vnc/passwd
