Ok, I tested this with an updated Zynthian but I’m not getting this to work for me…
After enabling the VNC server from the menu, I can succesfully connect with Tiger VNC Viewer to zynthian.local:5901 and I’m presented with a console screen of the zynthian. So far, so good.
If I subsequently start a Zynaddsubfx layer on the zynthian, it works as expected on the zynthian, but no ui is launched on the vncviewer.
If I peek from the console in the processes launched on the zynthian, I see that this is not a surprise since it is launched headless:
# ps aux | grep zynaddsubfx
root 14331 4.6 1.1 138244 94076 pts/1 SLsl+ 16:30 0:00 /usr/bin/zynaddsubfx -r 44100 -b 256 -O jack-multi -I jack -P 6693 -a -U
(The -U is the flag to launch without GUI)
so it seems that config_remote_display is not detecting that I have a remote session running.
From the console I also spotted this:
root@zynthian:~# env | grep VNC
Which I suspect needs to be something else when connected through VNC.
Should I connect in a different way, am I doing something else wrong or is this an issue?
