Bullseye vncserver VNC Viewer missing window title bar

Sun Feb 20, 2022 10:22 am

I have just installed Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye 64-bit on my Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB). I use VNC Viewer on my PC to use it. However, the windows are not displaying correctly. The title bar is missing so I cannot close windows using the close (x) button. The top screen is my Raspberry Pi 4 (8GB) running Buster and the bottom is Bullseye 64-bit. I had the same issue when Bullseye 32-bit was installed on it. I run vncserver on the Raspberry Pi using the command:

Code: Select all

vncserver -geometry 1440x900 -IdleTimeout 0
And connect using VNC Viewer on my PC - latest version 6.2.1.1109 (r45988 x64 (Nov 9 2021 13:14:09).

I just found the solution myself...

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/desktop.conf
Change the line:

Code: Select all

window_manager=mutter
to

Code: Select all

window_manager=openbox-lxde-pi
Save and reboot

Return to “Raspberry Pi OS”
