I used to be able to run:
vncserver :2 just from the command line as a normal user and then connect to this if the port is available.
This is useful if you temporarily need a functional graphical environment from your linux computer and don't necessarily have a local X server or a speady enough line.
This option seems gone now? I am unable to find anything in the Release Notes on the topic. So I'm basically wondering:
1: How can I run vnc as a normal user these days (without having to give him sudo and do system wide configuration)
2: Why was this taken away? Was this not a normal use case? I find it greatly adds flexibility that I have come to rely on.
Edit: To be perfectly clear, vncserver is gone. I'm wondering why and if there's still a way to run it ad-hoc as a normal user
