vnc connection failure

Postby maxbre » 2020-03-11 14:51

I followed this tutorial in order to install and configure vnc apart from intalling the Xfce desktop environment

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/ ... n-debian-9

I'm using the Default Xsession on Debian 9 stretch (Debian 4.9.210-1 - 2020-01-20)

My configuration of the xstartup file in
Code: Select all
 ~/.vnc/xstartup
is like the following

Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
gnome-session &


now the problem is that when I connect to the server from a client I get a gray screen viewer with a black X cursor

which seems to me a very similar issue reported for debian 10 here:

https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... 10-gnome-3
(not exactly the same version I'm using for the host)

I've been trying also to edit
Code: Select all
/etc/gdm3/daemon.conf
in the host by uncommenting the line

Code: Select all
#WaylandEnable=false


so that instead it reads

Code: Select all
WaylandEnable=false



but without any success, at all...
(desperately seeking for a viable solution)

any help for that?

what to do on the host and what else on the client, or both?

thank you
maxbre
