VNC Server + X11 forwarding

Use: Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-rpi4-22.08

I need to use MobaXterm to connect to my Manjaro via VNC and SSH.
SSH connection it works for me but without support X11 forwarding.

1, how can i enable/install X11 forwardingsupport on my manjaro?

2, how can I install a VNC server that will be accessible to various programs that support VNC connections (example: MobaXterm )?


Hi Jana,

For X11 forwarding change this in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

X11Forwarding yes
X11DisplayOffset 10
X11UseLocalhost yes

Maybe Remmina

Remmina also occurred to me, but it seems that remmina is only a client without a server or no ?

I use RealVNC for everything, I found this:
(pamac build realvnc-vnc-server)

But I don’t know how to continue proceed and start RealVNC server.

I have Manjaro ARM, deb package won’t work for me or will it?

Ah, I thought you already installed this as described here:

But the setup process should be the same.

Nope, you can’t install deb packages on Manjaro.

(pamac build realvnc-vnc-server ) Does this mean that it will be compiled and automatically installed at the same time?

Yes, you can also use: pamac install realvnc-vnc-server

it seems that the assembly went well, but no command will start the VNC Server :frowning:

What are you trying to achieve?

If you want to control your remote using VNC over SSH

If you want to be able to run a single program on the remote machine and display the gui on your local you use X11 forwarding - xdmcp over ssh

Heard about it today. maybe also an alternative to VNC

Do you need the full desktop or just an application? If it’s just an application you can call it through ssh once it’s set up properly.

$ssh -X user@server

Once logged in you can call the application.


You could also just use x11vnc and set it up as a service so it starts at boot. Any simple client will connect to it. I use gvncviewer when I actually use it…not often.
