I would like to be able to access my Ubuntu 18.04 desktop (not just terminal) from Mac OS (Mojave), and have tried a couple solutions, with less-then-desirable results:

  • Installing google chrome remote desktop caused terminal to not launch properly.
  • XRDP would only display a blank screen on the remote desktop client.
  • Am considering trying x11vnc but I'm not sure how well-supported any of the macos x11vnc clients are

Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to do this?

    VNC is the way to go. Try TigerVNC. – Peschke Jul 18 at 14:25
  • MacOS built-in screen sharing feature uses the VNC protocol, you don't need a third-party client any more. But I've been using JollysFastVNC for many years, it works well. – Barmar Jul 24 at 17:21
