I am quite new with linux (only experience from school 10 years ago) and I am trying to set my new server with OS Linux which will act as an application server at home. I have already my own network in place with Rack where are network devices and I want to have this server there also, so I want to access this server only remotely via xrdp or vnc (of course with SSH) from my Windows desktop.
I have completely fresh version of Ubuntu Desktop 19.04 installed with minimum option. I tried every possibly way (also full instalation version of Ubuntu 19.04) - I mean I go through and follow many and many instruction how to make it work, but nothing helped. I always get Grey screen. So I re-install Ubuntu again and some advice will be really helpfull how to access this Ubuntu via VNC. Currently, I have really simple configuration so that you know (I hope) how to resolve it.
VNC VNC server on ubuntu desktop 19.04: petr@Odin:~$ sudo apt install tightvncserver petr@Odin:~$ sudo tightvncserver (pswd set)
VNC client at windows tightVNC -> the latest 64bit version
xrdb $HOME/.Xresources xsetroot -solid grey
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
Fix to make GNOME work
export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1 /etc/X11/Xsession
regarding xrdp it works, I can access it, but it seems that when i rdp to ubuntu I dont have all access rights with comparsion when I am connected directly, for example I cannot change some settings, enable/disable wifi, etc.. also I have to almost every action confirm by my password, it is really annoing. If it can be changed, then I dont need VNC, but currently it is horrible. Dont you know how to change it?
I am sign as petr@Odin:~$ , so superuser is created (it was done during instalation)
could someone help me please? I am fighting with 3 days with still the same results..
