View Full Version : [ubuntu] Remote desktop black screen after upgrade

June 11th, 2009, 10:53 AM

I've upgraded Ubuntu from 8.04 to 8.10 then from 8.10 to 9.04. Most things work OK but I'm having this issue with Remote Desktop, whenever I connect to it, I get the right window size and the mouse is moving around, but the screen is always black - if I check what's going on on the remote session, then actually everything is working, only no desktop image is tranfered to the client... I tried to disable the Remote Desktop and set new password etc. but I still get only the black screen. Any ideas? This used to work with no problems under 8.04 and I believe there's an issue in my profile - same as compiz does not start automaticlly, so I had to put it in startup session application - could this be the problem?

Thanks for any help!
