I am having issues with my Linux Mint/Ubuntu system to properly display via a remote desktop connection - the system is using llvmpipe when logged in via remote desktop connection, but properly configures when connected to the system locally/in person. System details:
Linux Mint 19.2, Ubuntu 18.04
Kernel version: 4.15.0-189-generic x86_64
GPU: GeForce GT 710
Nvidia driver version: 470.141.03
Remote connection via XRDP
The nvidia-smi recognizes the GPU and does not return any errors.
Symptoms of the issue:
The physical/in person computer display works as expected. The issues described below are not present with the in person/physical computer display and only affect the remote connection display.
nvidia-settings outputs ‘ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system.’ The application attempts to open but simply creates a blank window.
data visualization program “Paraview” does not display information, although by left/right clicking on the display, the program provides dropdown menus indicating that the program has loaded but is not displaying the program information.
prime-select nvidia indicates that the nvidia profile is already set
inxi -G indicates that the renderer is using llvm. inxi -Gxx:
I have already tried version 390 and the same symptoms were present. Attached is the report log when run via the REMOTE connection. I appreciate any help with identifying and fixing this issue as I’m not sure what to do next. Thanks.
Thanks generix. Based on you linking that post, are you saying that there is no solution for this issue? I tried some of the suggestions in that post and other that were linked to that post and have not come up with a solution.
Would this solution linked below that you previously provided be appropriate in my situation?
Thanks generix. I appreciate the direction and I was able to implement an adequate solution using x11vnc. For the benefit of others who may come across this post, this was my solution method:
Understand that Nvidia graphics card seem to present issues with allowing remote connections to properly display on the remote connection when using a remote X display (as in with the built in Windows Remote Desktop Connection software). As a result, assuming the local X display is working as intended, the local X display must be forwarded to the remote client.
