    I have a headless Linux machine which I run as a “mini-server” at home and is installed with Fedora 24 server with LXDE desktop. 2 Days ago, I connected it to a monitor and upgraded it to Fedora 25. Installation went fine, however whenever I try to login, it used to log me out at the first mouse click.

    I was not able to login through GUI whatsoever (however i was able to login via terminal). Upon going through 100s of blogs and 100s of trial and error, I found out that long ago I had a setup in .bash_profile to increase the resolution whenever I connect using teamviewer (as this server is headless almost all the time and I use the machine’s GUI only though Teamviewer).

    This was the culprit. After removing this, I was able to login without a problem. Now I don’t know how to increase the resolution when I connect to the headless server via Team Viewer. I was using the below command to set the resolution from Fedora 21 until 24:

    xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync 
    xrandr --addmode VIRTUAL1 1920x1080_60.00 
    xrandr --output VIRTUAL1 --mode 1920x1080_60.00 
    xrandr --output LVDS1 --off 

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated?

    For VirtalBox, you did not mention that dependency is kernel-devel, and to install 5.1 version, you have to install VirtualBox-5.1

    You tried to install unzip? Even your own graphic showed it as already installed, as it is in a default Fedora install.

    • Aaron Kili says:


      We had not read through the full documentation for Fedora 25 by the time of the writing, that is why we suggested installation of the package. However, thanks for the heads up, we’ll check before publishing in future articles.

    Out of curiosity, you mention setting a static IP as though this should be the default setting. Is that the preferred configuration? I thought DHCP was generally the safer option, so I want to make sure I’m not missing some critical piece of network administration.

    • Aaron Kili says:


      You are right, DHCP is the preferred method. However, if you are working in a LAN that you control yourself, then a static IP for your machine would make it easy to access when working on a network.

      In case you are accessing the Internet through a third-party, then DHCP is the best option.

    AnyDesk instead of Teamviewer.
    It doesn’t need Wine (native build for Linux).
    It’s faster.
    It’s more secure.
    It’s UI is much cleaner and simpler.
    It uses much less memory.
    They are more sympathetic.
