Install x11vnc to configure it on your Ubuntu System, run below command to install it.
$ sudo apt-get install x11vnc
Now create & store password in passwd file under user’s profile’s .vnc folder :
$ x11vnc -storepasswd
Here it will ask you to enter your desired password two times.
now copy “passwd” file to the common path to set it to use commonly here I will copy it to /etc folder but you can put anywhere on safe place.
$ sudo cp ~/.vnc/passwd /etc/x11vnc.pass
Now you need to create x11vnc service file and enable then start it.
to create service you will need to create file with extension of .service and put it on /lib/systemd/system path.
$ touch /lib/systemd/system/x11vnc.service
Now edit file
$ nano /lib/systemd/system/x11vnc.service
and copy below lines in the file :
Description=Start x11vnc at startup.
ExecStart=/usr/bin/x11vnc -auth guess -forever -loop -noxdamage -repeat -rfbauth /etc/x11vnc.pass -rfbport 5900 -shared
after copying above your further step is to reload daemon
$ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
Once you reload it enable to service :
sudo systemctl enable x11vnc.service
Now, Time to start service
sudo systemctl start x11vnc.service
Great !! You finally have configure vnc on your Linux Operating system.
