TigerVNC is a high-performance implementation of the VNC protocol, which allows you to control/view desktops remotely over the internet.
TigerVNC can be installed either from the Software Center or via terminal. The terminal command to run it is:
sudo eopkg install tigervnc
For the initial setup of vncserver for TigerVNC you have to open a terminal and run:
While this setup you will be asked for setting up a password and if you’d like to setup a view-only mode, please do it accordingly your desire.
After the initial setup you have to stop the vncserver process, for this please type inside the terminal
vncserver -kill :1
Every Desktop needs a different Setup, you find the vncserver config under
$HOME/.vnc/xstartup open the file with your desired editor and change bash script inside the file with the following information for your Desktop.
#!/bin/bash unset SESSION_MANAGER unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS gnome-session --session=budgie-desktop & budgie-wm & budgie-panel &

#!/bin/bash unset SESSION_MANAGER unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS mate-session & mate-panel &
