Black screen using VNCServer and F26
Last modified: 2018-05-03 04:09:42 EDT
Description of problem:
Connecting to a VNC session to Fedora 26 leads to a black screen (worked with F25)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Configure a vncserver@\:X.service in /etc/systemd/system:
Description=Remote desktop service (VNC)
# Clean any existing files in /tmp/.X11-unix environment
ExecStartPre=-/usr/bin/vncserver -kill %i
ExecStop=-/usr/bin/vncserver -kill %i
Connect with a vnc client (in my case vncviewer from my mac)
Black screen but with the pointer
My Shiny new Fedora 26 desktop
* The systemd service does not work the first time, could it be fixed too?
* Does the X11 configuration line mandatory? It could be nice to use Wayland, but the 'known bugs' page said that remote handling is at 50%.
* Is there a better way to remote connect to Fedora? I'm kind of a linux noob and do not really understand all that x11-server, Vnc, Wayland, Etc. stuff...
When i said 'the first time' it means 'at boot', sry.
I'm experiencing this on F27 with TigerVNC Server and the TigerVNC VNC Server Module as well.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
