I tried to use VNC to remotely connect to my ubuntu. Originally I didn't find the command vncserver

I was wondering how can I change the geometry of the default vnc supported by ubuntu.
Because when I use the vncserver installed, I can use vncserver :1 -geometry 800x600 to setup the geometry,
but for the one provided by ubuntu (enabled by allowing remote desktop), I can not and when I connect with
vncviewer, the geometry looks not good.
Thanks a lot.
Though installing a vnc server is an option (I have used
tightvncserver), have you tried using Ubuntu's own remote desktop
server? It is called vino and can be started by any user by going to
Once a user enables the remote desktop, a client can connect to the
user's machine using any vnc viewer.
If the user's machine has ip addres of A.B.C.D, then you should be able
to see that user's desktop from another machine using a vnc viewer (try
tightvncviewer, it is free and available for, I think, all major OSes).
On Linux machine, you could try:
$> tightvncviwer encoding "tight hextile" A.B.C.D
