I am doing a remote desktop to CentOS by starting VNCServer (Tiger VNC)and then connecting using RealVNC client. This is what I see

CentOS Remote Desktop View with low pixel density There is something wrong with Pixel density, resolution or color-depth.

Can't figure out and how to fix it.

I have already tried installing fonts (msttcore) and starting server using various resolution and color depth.

vncserver -depth 24 -geometry 1280x768

  • When in a connection click the information button from the viewer's toolbar, what does it say for pixel format, VNC Server default, Requested Encoding and Last-used encoding? – srk Nov 15 '17 at 14:32

Have you tried changing the viewer's picture quality settings? While in a connection select the cog icon from the viewer's toolbar. Then set picture quality to High.
