After I wrote the post below I tried to run it again and for some reason (and after some battery re-connecting) it booted up again.
Since I usually have no screen attached, I had to remove the files necessary for the headless version. So, I went to
/ect/X11 and removed my headless configuration.
Now I have a display again, but desktop sharing is not toggleable. I use GNOME on Manjaro and I’m pretty sure now that the recent GNOME update did this. Any way to make it toggleable again? (by toggleable I mean that I cannot activate it from the GUI. It simply does not respond to my mouseclick).
=============== OLD ===================
I have an old notebook lying on a closet which I normally use as a server for various tasks. In order to issue commands, most of the time I connect via
ssh, but sometimes I prefer
A few days ago I wanted to connect via
vnc and notice it wasn’t working. However, I had no problems connecting with
ssh. Still, I decided to get it down from the cupboard and plug a monitor into it to re-activate it again. (I assumed it had been turned off for some unknown reason).
Here, it should be mentioned that the battery is really bad and I just keep it plugged in, because at first I tried to power it up without the power cord plugged into the notebook. I was hoping that I maybe had 5min and also hoped that this should be enough. But no powering-up happened. I then plugged the power cord in, but still no reaction. This was about a week ago and the notebook has been plugged in the entire time. But still no reaction when I press the power button.
Is it dead now? Any idea as to why this has happened?
