Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I used to use TigerVNC to connect to a Mac MINI running Mountain Lion from my laptop running Fedora Core 18. After upgrading the Mac to Maverick, I now get the error "No Matching Security Types"

I've tried every setting I can change through the GUI with the same result. I have also tried using other free VNC viewers, and still have had no luck.

I know for a fact that Screen Sharing is working, I am able to connect using another Mac.

Is there a way to do this without having to purchase a VNC viewer like RealVNC that I don't know will work?

The other viewers I tried are:

  • remmina (only appears to have SSH or SFTP as protocol options)
  • NoMachine (only has SSH and NX as options)
  • I downloaded gtkvncviewer but it doesn't appear to actually do anything and give no error report

Vinagre appears to work well enough.

   vinagre

You invoke it from the command line like so:

$ vinagre

There is also a applet that should be available when you install it so that you can just pick machines that you've bookmarked with it form a pulldown when you add the applet to your toolbar.
