Vino Not Working - X11 Not Found

Post by utilinux » 2020/07/30 22:32:02

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to get vino working on CentOS 8. It worked fine on CentOS 7. However, in CentOS 8 it keeps saying "X11 is not detected".

I've verified that X11 is in fact installed. Given that vino comes preinstalled, I would have expected it to work out of the box.

I'm running CentOS 8 inside vmware.

Thanks

I think C8 uses wayland as default.
Maybe you could try to select Xorg in the login screen instead?

That, sir, worked perfectly. Thanks!

Just had to modify /etc/gdm/custom.conf like below and reboot:

WaylandEnable=false
DefaultSession=gnome-xorg.desktop
