Hello @marcellom66

You can use xrdp instead.

Thank you but I don’t have windows, in the raspberry pi I use RealVNC viewer , Is it possible to use it with my macbook to connect remotely?

A number of good clients that will use the RDP protocol are available on MacOS, Linux and other platforms. I used the Microsoft Remote Desktop application on MacOS Ventura 13, it is available for free in the Apple App Store.

Less than optimal than having a single VNC or RDP solution across all your servers. Hopefully Khadas will figure out how to get Ubuntu builtin screen sharing to work on VIM4.

Yes, we will check, I need to make VNC work on my X86 PC first.

Killing Xtigervnc process ID 3542... success!

Session startup via '/etc/X11/Xtigervnc-session' cleanly exited too early (< 3 seconds)!

Maybe try something simple first, e.g.,
        tigervncserver -xstartup /usr/bin/xterm
The Xtigervnc server cleanly exited!
The X session cleanly exited!

Hello @marcellom66

Can you ssh to the board and execute the command ? And you must logout from the system.

$ vncserver -localhost no :2

thanks, now works, I didn’t logout.
