I don't know what exactly this problem called. Somehow, the 'R' in RGB turned into Blue.

Please check below screenshots:

Weird color Ubuntu Mate

Normal Mac OSX

What was happened? And how to fix it?

just a guess, try to change color depth of your remote desktop client. From your screenshots, you seems to use a Mac machine. I do not know exactly where it would be located but you should have an option that allows you to decrease color depth and you could see if this fix your issue

Till next time See ya

  • Yes, you are right. I'm using Microsoft Remote Desktop on Mac, I also tried to change color depth from 24bit to 32bit but no changes at all. I also tried Windows's mstsc too, but same weird color... Dec 18, 2016 at 8:52
