ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 2670
vncserver is not functional in default installation
Last modified: 2013-09-10 03:29:14 MSD
on ROSA server
$ sudo yum -y install /usr/bin/vncserver
on another system
1. ROSA default install uses LXDE but standard X11 /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients script knows nothing besides KDE and GNOME and additional desktop environments possibly expected in /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.d. Connection results in no window manager with single firefox window.
Workaround is to add
before the line
if [ -x /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ]; then
2. after the workaround the LXDE desktop comes up but with an error on the screen:
Remote Exception invoking org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Authority.RegisterAuthenticationAgent() on /org/freedesktop/PolicyKit1/Authority at name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: Error parsing subject struct org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed Error (nil)arsing @\Uffffffffject @\Uffffffffuct
and network manager applet is not showing on the panel. An attempt to start manually fails as well:
** (nm-applet:2616): WARNING **: <WARN> request_name(): Could not acquire the NetworkManagerUserSettings service.
Error: (9) Connection ":1.105" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings" due to security policies in the configuration file
ROSA is positioned as a server and thus must fully support remote access via vnc.
