Black screen using VNCServer and F26
Last modified: 2017-07-16 06:49:32 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.
