I am trying to VNC from my iphone to my ubuntu machine.

I have installed vncserver on my machine and I can go to my terminal and type vncserver and I get the log:

Xvnc Free Edition 4.1.1 - built Feb 25 2015 23:02:21

XKB extension not present on :1

Error: XKB extension not present on :1

              Exiting

Starting session: /etc/X11/Xsession

Session terminated with return code 0.#

I can connect to the session If I use correct IP ADDRESS, but I only get a grey screen.

Here is my startup file

#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop: 
unset SESSION_MANAGER
#exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
gnome-session –session=gnome-classic &

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
#x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
#x-window-manager &

I beleive the server is running in some limited capacity as I can connect to a grey screen (only if i use the correct IP) but i get disconnected if I write

vncserver -kill :1

Ant help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Use a vnc server offered in the Ubuntu packages, like x11vnc or vnc4server. Then when it is run, it will find the libraries and configuration files in their expected locations.

  • Thanks but I already have vnc4server and I think 11vnc also. I think there might be a problem with my path. you can see in my logs it tries "Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/" . any help is greatly appreciated – Brendan Oct 1 '18 at 11:56
