This Guide will allow you to connect to a tightVNCserver on Ubuntu 20.04 with no monitor or keyboard attached to the Server. The problem i was having prior to this was it previously needed a monitor plugged in - in order for the mouse and keyboard to work. This is the work around. - First of all you want to set a Static IP Address on your Ubuntu 20.04 in netowrk settings - Head to Settings/Sharing and enable the Sharing switch at the top of the screen. You will want to click on 'Screen Sharing' , again enabling the switch, allowing connections to control the screen. Click 'Require a Password' button and enter a password. Select the netowork you wish to use. - Head to the terminal and enter these commands below sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install xfce4 xfce4-goodies tightvncserver - You want to select gdm3 vncserver - Here enter a password, and select no to view only vncserver -kill :1 gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false - This will disable encryption over the connection so remember not to use it for anything of importance sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-dummy - This next line tricks the server to think there is a monitor attached. sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf - Here you want to edit the xorg.conf and add all the below code into the file. Ctrl-X and Y to save. If the file doesnt exist, create it. Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "dummy" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" HorizSync 31.5-48.5 VertRefresh 50-70 EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Depth 24 Modes "1920x1080" EndSubSection EndSection reboot - Reboot the server and once Ubuntu has started you can go into your VNC Viewer in Windows and create a new connection to connect to the server. You should be able to remove the HDMI lead for the monitor and any keyboard / mouse and remote into it with full use of the remote mouse/keyboard with full native Desktop.
