Remote access to Mate desktop using VNC
#1
Hi,

So I am trying to do the above and got everything working using X11vnx.  I get all the way to the point that the remote VNC viewer can view the Mate login screen.  This is when the problems occur.  I input the correct credentials and then the VNC session dies.  Below is a link to someone else who had a similar problem.

http://askubuntu.com/questions/288647/vn...alid-login

Now before I go and start trying to monkey with the system as described here (http://superuser.com/questions/524811/ho...spberry-pi), I want to see if anyone else has seen this and has a simple solution.  My four Raspberry Pis just work with VNC and so I am straying far from my comfort zone and general knowledge on this one.

I would love to know if anyone has addressed this situation successfully, and if so, how they did it.  If not, I will cross my fingers and try out the solution listed above although I am afraid that it might break other things....

Thank you!

JL

Well, I rebuilt the system and now everything works and so it must have something to do with the original install.  All is good now.
