Hello,

I recently switched from Ubuntu to Debian. It's all working great except when I connect to a virtual machine via Horizon View, it does connect but the screen stays black.
Anyone experienced this before and knows how to fix this?

I'm hoping to stick with Debian, but this would be a deal breaker.

Also, and this is happening on Ubuntu as well (where it connects just fine) when launching Horizon View Client, I always get the message "The display server protocol that you are using is not supported. Recommended to log in with x11 display server protocol configured."
Any idea how to enable x11?

Thanks!

G'day @Enso and welcome to linux.org :)

Can't help with the Horizon part because I don't use VMware but someone will likely be along.

With Ubuntu, at the login screen click the cog near bottom right and you get a choice.

Choose either of the Xorg options and continue to login. The default (Ubuntu) is the Wayland Sever.

The cog options are a toggle function so you will remain of that display server through reboots until or unless you change it.
