I am attempting to VNC into a Mac Mini 2010 from an Ubuntu 12.04 desktop. I've tried RealVNC, gtkvncviewer and TightVNC java. Tight vnc is the only one that gives me a password prompt. I've been told this is because mac runs tight vnc when on remote desktop. Anyway so tight VNC that I downloaded from tightvnc.com won't work.
I tried to telnet the VNC address
jasonfonseca@ubuntu:~$ telnet 192.168.6.206 5900 Trying 192.168.6.206... Connected to 192.168.6.206. Escape character is '^]'. RFB 003.889 ^C ^]
I got a response, so the service is contactable. When I use tight vnc, it connects and prompts for a password. When that goes in, the windows disappear. TightVNC is still running in my htop, but no window for it. Gone.. disappearing act. Also the icon on my launch bar is also gone.
Any help appreciated.
