fedora 26 vncserver with black screen

I have not found an answer anywhere else.

From what I can tell, vncserver failes when started from 'systemctl' but works when started from the command line.

I did both and checked gnome-session-binary:

emike 1932 1 0 03:22 ? 00:00:00 /usr/libexec/gnome-session-binary
emike 2684 1 0 03:24 pts/0 00:00:00 /usr/libexec/gnome-session-binary

The one on pts/0 was started from the command line. The other from systemctl.

Under the one started from the command line, there is a 'gnome-shell'. Not under the other.
Also, a diff of the log files (:1 systemctl and :2 command line) the only noteable difference is:

Failed to import environment: Process org.freedesktop.systemd1 exited with status 1

I can assume that this is because there is no controlling tty. This is definitely a bug.
I don't yet know of a workaround. Any ideas?

Re: fedora 26 vncserver with black screen

Disappointed again with no replies.

Had two problems. The main one (found by web searches) was fixed by
adding this line:




user the [Service] group, and restarting

The other was a permissions problem, I think it was in /run/user/..., but I don't
