Allowing VNC Connections Into Linux Mint

Do any programs need to be installed that aren’t included in the default install of Linux Mint in order for it to allow VNC connections?

Yes, you’ll need a VNC server. I don’t know if Mint includes one by default, but popular choices are Vino and RealVNC (Xvnc).

The way to do it is go to menu->control center->remote desktop. Then click on allow others to view your desktop. It will also show the ip that people need to enter to connect.

I have a headless Linux Mint server that uses vino for VNC access. I configured it to autologin, and then I access the server with VNC whenever I need it. It works great.
