HowTo Remote Connect to a Mate Desktop Session Using the Vino Server
This section briefly describes how to connect to a user Mate Desktop Session using the Vino (VNC) server. NST includes the "mate-vino" package which allows the connection of a Mate Desktop Session using an external VNC client.
Enable Vino on a Mate Desktop
Use the following configuration widget: "Remote Desktop (Mate Vino Settings)" to enable the Vino server and thus access via VNC to the Mate Desktop.
Access to the "Remote Desktop" widget from the Mate Menu:
System --> Preferences --> Other --> Remote Desktop (Mate Vino Settings)
HowTo Verify that the Vino Server is Running
One can use the NST script: nstvncadmin to verify that the Vino server is running:
[root@E6540 ~]# nstvncadmin -m list -v; PID USER DISPLAY URL SERVER ===== ==== ======= ============================ =========== 6534 nst :0 N/A vino-server
Vino on NST 32 or Later
The "Remote Desktop (Mate Vino Settings)" widget is no longer supported. Use the dconf Editor to manage Vino settings. Vino settings are located using path: org -> gnome -> desktop -> remote-access.
Now start the user specific vino service:
[nst@localhost ~]$ systemctl --user status vino-server.service;
- macOS - Best to use the third party VNC viewer like: RealVNC
