Any help would be welcome. Thanks,

I am not familiar with that piece of software so hopefully someone can chip in.

Also you should consult askubuntu.com/ubuntuforums.org as well

As an alternative using the inbuilt vnc server works for me … Menu - Sharing. Just enable and then use something like remmina to vnc to the box.

Also I forgot to mention, the system crashes and return to the login screen if I try using a normal user in the terminal. I works being the root or when I use it remotely (ssh)

What were you doing when your machine crashed ? We’re not soothsayers.

What works while you being root ? VNC access ? Login to a graphic session ?

Did you read @fossfreedom’s answer about the inbuilt vnc server in Budgie ? It’s same as in Gnome, it’s called vino but you set it through usual system settings / sharing or from a terminal :

gnome-control-center sharing

No need for another vnc server and maybe having both of them may interfere ( ? ).

Sorry, mate

Ok, after typing vncserver using my normal user makes the system crash to the login screen. If I do sudo vncserver I can go through it without crashing it. Same if I use the normal user in another computer using ssh connection.

I’ll give vino a shout. Just can’t understand why one popular tool does not work that well.

Apparently for budgie and tigervnc you have to define a local config file to start the budgie desktop components

All good. I also have Solus Budgie in another machine and it works there. I followed Chris Titus YouTube video to make vino work and everything was fine. Last, I tried one more time using Tiger Vnc (after a reinstall) and even tough it didn’t crash the system, it didn’t go further (it hasn’t even created the xauthority file). It may be case of sending the info to Tiger Vnc developers.

Thanks for all
