How To Install VNC on Ubuntu 20.04

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-vnc-on-ubuntu-20-04 I’ve started the server and created the ssh tunnel. When I open up my tightvnc viewer on my local machine, I’m prompted to input my password and I do so and it then takes me to this screen: https://prnt.sc/tuqbv3 SSH Tunnel Settings : https://prnt.sc/tuqc67 Please Help

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.

#!/bin/sh
 unset SESSION_MANAGER
 unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
 dbus-launch xfce4-session

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
