forget it - these days are sadly gone and even if you get it to work it's
unusable since version 5
hence i created a "openbox" vncserver.service to at least have some
graphical remote desktop for acting on remote machines when moving the data
over VPN is no option
Not an expert on this by a long shot, but I've been using it for the last
few weeks on a daily basis since I'm away on travel and has been working
pretty good for me.
i am using TigerVNC, and didn't do anything except to add --> exec startkde
<-- to the xstartup file in the .vnc directory.
Both server and remote are radeon, not sure if that makes a difference or
Now the home system is set to use OpenGL, but when I connect to it remotely
it shows that it is using XRender as the compositor. I didn't do anything
to make that
change, looks like it is done by TigerVNC somehow.
Again, I just installed and pretty much just added the "startkde"
