vnc server launched via ssh = gray screen. Local terminal vnc = ok
 
When I launch vncserver via ssh, vnc viewer only shows gray screen and X cursor.

When I launch vncserver via local terminal, vnc viewer shows the desktop fine. It works, other than an immediate error message-
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: An authentication agent already exists for the given subject

Any idea why I can't launch vncserver properly through ssh remote terminal?


I'm am running this on Ubuntu server with Lubuntu desktop

Are you forwarding port 5901 traffic correctly?

Post your complete ssh command.
