I recently upgraded to Fedora 25 and I can't get VNC to work properly now. When I Connect I get a black screen with a round cursor instead of the gnome desktop. Any help is appreciated

Any idea how I can adjust for that? I assume somehow in xstartup?

I have vnc issues as well. my research;


I read on the Wayland site that it does not innately support remote desktops. https://wayland.freedesktop.org/faq.h...

Then I read that VNC is not working, at least via gnome, and it's a current known issue. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common...

Also of note is that VNC only has a Wayland/VNC developer preview but afaik no official release for wayland https://github.com/RealVNC/wayland-de...

I cannot get it to work either. The first error I see in messages is:

Jan 8 00:42:55 rocky dbus-daemon[7013]: [session uid=1000 pid=7008] Activated service 'org.freedesktop.systemd1' failed: Process org.freedesktop.systemd1 exited with status 1

If it is useful, I can start a new question and upload the full log

I, too got a black screen. Here is how I get around it: - sign in via ssh - then type in: sudo systemctl stop vncserver@:1.service - then type in: vncserver at this point I get a message saying that a new instance has been started. I can now start my vnc client and it works perfectly. This works until the next reboot, then repeat above. It's clumsy, but it works until they fix it properly. Dick
