Uninstalled, rebooted, re-installed. It's running now, but when I tried to connect with TightVNC v 1.5.2, I get the attached error. When I click the "logout" button, the error window disappears but the screen with the gray background with three checkboxes in the upper left remain. Subsequent launches of TightVNC no longer give the error, but the gray background screen continues to come up. To be safe, I also updated TightVNC to 2.5.2 and have the same gray background screen.
Also, when I view the installed apps and expand VNC, the special instructions state, "This server runs the desktop as the first Amahi admin user" but that doesn't seem correct in my case. It's running as the SECOND Amahi admin user that I set up, "brj". Now it happens to be the case that "brj" is the first ALPHABETICAL Amahi admin user, but my login, "taa" was the first admin user created, the one that needed to be created during the Amahi install.

TightVNC may be part of the issue. Can you try another client, such as UltraVNC or similar one. I will check on the first admin issue, that should be easy.
Bug 957 might be part of why this is not working as well.
The home directory is not properly created for new users. Check your /home and see if it is there with all the pieces like the one initially created with the Ubuntu install.
