Just running

/usr/lib/vino/vino-server should do the job.

Once you have access to your server, I would recommend that you add it to Autostarted Apps so it is always started.

You'll probably like change some settings with :

vino-preferences be very careful when you run vino-preference on a remote machine, if you uncheck "Allow other users to control your desktop", you won't be able to check it back.

or to edit :

~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/remote_access/%gconf.xml Here a sample file :

<?xml version="1.0"?> <gconf>

    VNC SSH


    misc vnc notes

    Goal

    I would like to use VNC to access a Ubuntu 18.04 system from windows like I do with the Raspberry Pi.

    • Connect to the existing desktop
    • Keep the connection secure

    This has been a bit of a struggle for a number of gotchas.

    Overview

    As I understand it ( may not have figured it out all the way )

    • VNC has a server ( run on the machine you wish to view ) and viewer ( run on the machine you wish to access).
    • In addition to having several components there are many versions of VNC. Directions for each differ, and differ across versions of Linux.
    • I will focus on Tiger VNC and Ubuntu 18.04
    • To get VNC working there seem to be various components.
      • VNC server
      • Desktop software ( there are many different ones, you may need to install -- however here I want to run on the default Ubuntu 18.04 desktop so no install is necessary )
      • A way to connect to the VNC server -- many servers will only connect to localhost 127.0.0.1 so we will use vnc tunnelling to make a remote connection appear to be on localhost


    Other Software Used

    before installs

    • sudo apt update
    • sudo apt upgrade


    Install a process viewer (htop)

    SSH

    • Install >> sudo apt install openssh-server


    Ubuntu text editor ( gedit )

    • Install >> apt-get -install  ??
    • Run >> htop

    Ubuntu File Browser

    Tiger VNC

    • Install >> apt-get -install  ???
    • Install >> sudo apt install tigervnc-standalone-server tigervnc-viewer
    • Run >> tigervncserver -xstartup /usr/bin/xterm
    • see running servers >> vncserver -list
    • what runs with command vncserver >> which vncserver
        right answer is ?? 
    

    /usr/bin/vncserver

    no keyboard untill 1 - > 4 gig memory still running slugish??

    tiger vnc

    sudo apt install tigervnc-standalone-server tigervnc-viewer


    start in terminal with

    vncserver

    vncviewer

    russ@UbuntuBase-VB:~$ vncserver

    New 'UbuntuBase-VB:1 (russ)' desktop at :1 on machine UbuntuBase-VB

    Starting applications specified in /etc/X11/Xvnc-session Log file is /home/russ/.vnc/UbuntuBase-VB:1.log

    Use xtigervncviewer -SecurityTypes VncAuth -passwd /home/russ/.vnc/passwd :1 to connect to the VNC server.

    russ@UbuntuBase-VB:~$ vncserver

    loopback IP address is 127.0.0.1



    not done yet ------


    Start TigerVNC vncserver at boot

    The ubuntu install package also registers a system service, making it easy to define listening vnc servers on startup. Edit the file /etc/default/vncserver and add the display number and user to start as:

    sudo gedit /etc/default/vncserver

    VNCSERVERS="1:myusername"

    Then enable the service at boot with:

    sudo update-rc.d vncserver defaults


    end not done

    vncserver in terminal to start

    Use xtigervncviewer -SecurityTypes VncAuth -passwd /home/russ/.vnc/passwd :1 to connect to the VNC server.

    sudo apt install openssh-server

    sudo apt-get install openssh-server

    Input your password (no visual feedback while typing) when it prompts and hit Enter.

    openssh-server-bionic

    3. Once installed, SSH starts automatically in background. And you can check its status via command:

    sudo systemctl status ssh.service
