I am trying to set up remote desktop but on the computer that I'm trying to setup access for, it will not even load the sharing settings. All other settings load fine. I have attached an image of the issue. Essentially, regardless of if I've switched it "on" or "off", this screen does not change,the sharing settings do not appear, so I cannot begin setting anything up. I have set this up on other Ubuntu machines in the past without issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
On one of my machines, I had to install vino and dconf-editor:
sudo apt install vino dconf-editor
then edit the values under
/org/gnome/desktop/remote-access/ (see Ubuntu MATE: Where is Vino in dconf?).
on another, I had an entry from old times in
/etc/network/interfaces which I had to remove so that only the following remains:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback
then follow the description on Linux Config - however, I made one change, namely I made NetworkManager manage all connections. So I created a file
/etc/netplan/01-network-manager-all.yaml that looks like:
# Let NetworkManager manage all devices on this system network: version: 2 renderer: NetworkManager
Then reboot and everything worked. Totally crazy, I would really like to know what went wrong at Canonical when they switched from 16.04 to 18.04
