Remote connection to Fedora system using Gnome connections

Hi everyone,

I’m facing an issue while remote connecting to a Fedora system using Gnome connections.
I enter the IP address of the system for RDP (rdp://ip-address), it asks for credentials, and I get only a message “success”, as shown below, and the window closes.

I have enabled the remote desktop settings in the remote system.
Please let me know any suggestions.


Please have a look on that.
I think it is worth to try to downgrade the mutter package.

Run journalctl -f in a terminal, to see new system log entries. Then attempt to connect to the remote machine. See whether something interesting gets printed into the journal when your connection fails.

Hi @ilikelinux ,

I have tried to downgrade mutter package in both local and remote systems.
The local system is on F38 and mutter package version is mutter.44.6-1.fc38.x86_64.
The remote system is on F39 and mutter package version is mutter.45.0-12.fc39.x86_64.
The outcome is still the same.

HI @kparal ,
I tried opening the gnome-connections from the terminal, to see some output. I get the below output.

07:23:01 ~ > gnome-connections &

Please let me know your suggestions.


The best approach is probably to file a bug against gnome-connections here:

Attach the terminal output, program version, and any other helpful details.
