Make sure you using X11 and not Wayland, to me the reason it do not work is you need to set it like this $ vncserver :0 -geometry 1280x800 -depth 24 you can also use x11vnc with this command line x11vnc -display :0 or x11vnc -display :0 -bg -shared if you like to run it on background. Hope it helps. Good Luck
