Tigervnc is starting and stopped immediately on a service restart

Hi all,

I am new to Manjaro and i want to switch from windows. I have recently bought Intel Nuc and installed ESXi and created a Manjaro 21.3 desktop edition vm.

To remote into the vm using vnc, i have installed tigervnc and below are my config. I have created a vncpasswd as well.

session i am using supported ones by using the one thats listed under /usr/share/xsessions/


# TigerVNC User assignment
# This file assigns users to specific VNC display numbers.
# The syntax is <display>=<username>. E.g.:
# :2=andrew
# :3=lisa

But every time i restart the service starts and stops immediately.

[manjaro xsessions]# systemctl restart vncserver@:5901
[manjaro xsessions]# systemctl status vncserver@:5901

Please point out what i am missing.

Read the documentation - why did you add three digits in front of the display number?
