Ubuntu 18.04.1 Vino installed and up to date. Sharing and remote access enabled via gnome UI Port 5900 confirmed open When accessing via VNC - Appears to connect (Auth warning - local ensure connection) Via Desktop VNC app - Stuck on "Preparing Desktop" Tried mobile (iOS) app - no progress beyond 'connecting' Had previously advanced beyond 'Preparing Desktop' but no gnome desktop session -- only a blank screen. Can anyone point me in the right direction? My guess is session settings for the remote user...? But I'm a bit outside my comfort zone.

  • After uncommenting the two lines at the top of xstartup I get this far - imgur.com/IDvpE2v. Comment these lines out again I get the nautilus file browser and the grey background... nothing else. Sure it's the xstartup file just not sure how to fix..? – user2607807 Dec 25 '18 at 17:06
