Running vino (VNC server) on Ubuntu Mate

Simple how-to:

  • sudo apt-get install vino dconf-tools
  • run vino-preferences
    • enable remote access
    • disable confirmation of the access
  • run dconf-editor
    • go to org -> gnome -> desktop -> remote-access
    • change network-interface to lo
    • uncheck require-encryption
    • clear vnc-password
  • create startup application for Vino VNC server
    • run /usr/lib/vino/vino-server --sm-client-disable
  • logout & login


  1. From Trusty on...
    Though lately (I am not sure when), the vino-preferences has been removed and the dconf-editor has its own package (named dconf-editor). At least on Cosmic it is like that.
