I'm trying to use turboVNC for remote application. I have installed virtualGL package (virtualgl32_2.6_amd64.deb) and then turboVNC (turbovnc_2.1.90_amd64.deb).

I'm using

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Processor : Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E7300 @ 2.66GHz × 2 
Graphic : AMD RV610 (DRM 2.50.0 / 4.15.0-33-generic, LLVM 6.0.0)
OS Type : 64-bit

I do not receive any error when installing, but afterwards, I'm unable to launch turboVNC.

It appears in Application; when I click on it, something appears briefly in the launcher side bar menu and then nothing.

I tried to remove and re-install, I still have the same problem.


~$ vncserver


New 'user1-OptiPlex-760:8 (user)' desktop is user-OptiPlex-760:8

Starting applications specified in /home/User/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/User/.vnc/user-OptiPlex-760:8.log

I'm able to run vncserver from TurboVNC but not open the graphical window. I get a new error message:

Could not find libjawt.so.


You have to install java in your system, do it with:

sudo apt install default-jre
