VNC Server Starting Problem

Hi
I have followed the following procedure to get TigerVNC as a VNC Server on my F24 machine.
HTML Code:
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/System_Administrators_Guide/ch-TigerVNC.html#s3-configuring-vnc-server
All appears to go well but when I try to 'enable/start' it an Error occurs as follows.
Code:
[root@PANTRY ~]# systemctl start vncserver@:1.service
Job for vncserver@:1.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status vncserver@:1.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
[root@PANTRY ~]#
Running
Code:
journalctl -xe
gives
Code:

Re: VNC Server Starting Problem

I've hit a similar one as well. I have it working on a single user setup with a freshly minted Fedora 25 server but on my upgraded box, I am working to find the fault.

I will post to let you know how I go.

Re: VNC Server Starting Problem

Wayland related?

Re: VNC Server Starting Problem

Appears to be at this stage. The systems are running wayland by default and I haven't been able to have a fully wayland vnc session established.

I have been able to get X working but am trying to get the "normal" wayland gnome desktop accessable from a secure remote connection.
