Granted that Wayland and Gnome do not support the old Vino and Xvnc and so on, for desktop sharing, and that Gnome has recently implemented new desktop sharing software on top of Wayland. After installing Fedora 30 (SilverBlue if that matters), I saw in the settings that the screen sharing option was available by default, without having to enable experimental features and install pipewire and so on, like in previous Gnome versions.
My prior GNU/Linux installation was a PureOS/Debian10 frankenhybrid running Gnome 3.30, where I was successfully able to install and enable desktop sharing and connect to my desktop using RealVNC’s VNC Viewer and the macOS Screen Sharing application included by default, which uses VNC.
Now migrating to SB, after enabling screen sharing, I can see that port 5900 is available, however when I attempt to connect to with either VNC Viewer or Screen Sharing, I get a message explaining that the protocol is incompatible or encryption level should be changed. I’ve tried without encryption as well from VNC Viewer, with no change to the error message.
Are there changes to the protocol used by screen sharing? Has anyone encountered this issue?
I can provide logs later once I’m back at my desktop…
thanks in advance
