How to connect vnc ( server and viewer or tigervnc) manjaro OS for raspberry pi?

hii, i’m trying to remote connect to my raspberry pi 4 using tigervnc. but it says that program doesn’t support arm.
and how to install vnc server and viewer on manjaro ( or any arch linux)?

tigervnc is in our repository. So just use that.

Hm. Right now, I see TigerVNC-Viewer in “extra” and tigervnc-server in “AUR”.
Both - and same is for all vnc packages - doesn’t install, either with a message “not for aarch64” or " …fakeroot…BINARY…".
So on my Manjaro Raspberry I cannot use any VNC and by the way also not any RDP prog.

would be really thankful for an advice, best regards

Sounds like if you are building the packages you need to install the development packages base-devel. You need to also add ‘aarch64’ to this line in the PKGBUILD:


arch=('‘x86_64’ ‘aarch64’)

it’s already in.

the line is:
arch=(‘x86_64’ ‘armv7h’ ‘aarch64’)

build stops with:
“==> ERROR: Cannot find the fakeroot binary.”

Do you have the base-devel package installed.

sudo pacman -S base-devel

The tigervnc package contains both client and server - it is as simple as

sudo pacman -Syu tigervnc

Plus the the various guides put together when hacking around with the PI

that’s it! Works. So the description in pamac is incomplete …


That description is provided with appstream data - so it is somewhere upstream - the description is incomplete :slight_smile:
