Description Orion Poplawski 2011-11-15 15:58:24 EST
Description of problem:

The example systemd service script does not run vncserver in login shell.  This can cause a lot of problems for the session started.  I would suggest:

ExecStart=/sbin/runuser -l <USER> -c "/usr/bin/vncserver -nolisten tcp %i"

and no User= line.  Unless it seems worthwhile to add login shell capability to systemd.
