This is how my Ubuntu gnome desktop appears like when accessed remotely through VNC viewer. The content appears very blurry and very difficult to read. I have set up this Ubuntu gnome desktop on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on GCP.
I have tried setting different values with this syntax and also in .vnc/xstartup script:
$ vncserver :1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24
But it doesn't seem to work.I have spent 2 days for setting and changing configurations and bash scripts to reach here and rectify this. I really prefer using VMs hosted on Clouds due to fast running applications on their platform unlike our own compute machines hence would really appreciate urgent help over this. This is the only bottleneck remaining to make progress in my work.
The session information for this on VNC viewer shows
pixel format: depth 6 (8 bpp) rgb222
My contents of .vnc/xstartup are :
#!/bin/sh # Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop: # unset SESSION_MANAGER # exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc [ -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 & export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP="GNOME-Flashback:Unity" export XDG_MENU_PREFIX="gnome-flashback-" unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS #gnome-session --session=gnome-flashback-metacity --disable-acceleration-check --debug & gnome-panel & gnome-settings-daemon & metacity & nautilus &
Thanks in advance!
Result of the below command is :
