Not for me, unfortunately. Does it only work if physical keyboard and mouse are connected to the pi?

Do not have any mouse/keyboard connected to RPi

(tested with vncviewer from package tightvnc and krdc, both are working)

RE: How to set up VNC connection?
Alright my newest research results:

Mouse support over VNC DOES work, but only if I had a mouse connected to my pi since the last reboot (assuming it is the same for keyboard but I currently have no PS/2 to USB port to test this).

Can this somehow be improved?

As a side note, when setting the vnc-server service to autostart by xbian-config, VNC connections will only result in a black screen. Only when autostart is disabled and vnc-server is started manually, graphical output is shown. I kind of remember having already read about this, but this appears as a bug to me.

I can confirm daharn,
it only works if I disabled vnc-autostart and start the service mauel (the colors does not agree, but this is secondary).
With autostart I get only a black screen (mouse and keyboard inputs works).

I suppose vnc service is started too early

I still do not know what the reason is for that behavior Sad

But I'm currently investigating vnc-server Smile, maybe I can fix this issue and the wrong color issue as well

Btw, dispmanx_vnc server does not have color issue, but shows exactly same black screen if started before Kodi and you have to reboot Pi to make it work again Huh Sounds like a bug in used vc library, because display snapshot does not work either Angry

If you want to use VNC I would suggest connecting to it over a tunneling SSH connection.
