The Linux VNC server provides a command to set a new password. The command is "vncpasswd", the password is stored in encrypted form into the file ~/.vnc/passwd of the home directory of te user. Run:

vncpasswd

to set a new password for the currently logged in user. The command will then prompt for the new password. If you like to set a new VNC password for a different user, then append the password file name to the command. Example for the user "jane":

vncpasswd /home/jane/.vnc/passwd

The above command to set a new password for jane requires it that you are logged in as root user. On Ubuntu systems you can use sudo instead:

sudo vncpasswd /home/jane/.vnc/passwd
