Hi, @pgbrulescheats

Have you tried using another client different from tightvnc? You can use RealVNC, VNC Viewer or Remmina as well.

If you’re still getting a blank page you can do the following. Add the following snippet to the xstartup which is mentioned in step 1 - /home/sammy/.vnc/xstartup and try again.

 dbus-launch xfce4-session

Hope that this helps!
