I have a Linux server with Ubuntu Server 16.04 installed, and I want to connect to it via Nomachine program from my windows computer or via VNC.

I tried to read some articles on the internet and follow the steps to install Ubuntu Desktop or GNOME desktop and after I did that, I only see a gray screen/background when I try to login via VNC.

When I try to login via Nomachine, and after I press the sign-in button, I get a gray screen that shows up for a second and then suddenly shuts down.

I really appreciate your help.

  • That's not the problem, The problem is the gray screen, Can I give you the server and take a look to it? Thanks

  • Can you log in normally (not through VNC)? Jun 14, 2017 at 18:26
  • You mean via the shell?
