Got it working! There was a bug with the installation of dbus. I reinstalled it, and the whole system runs great!
Now I just need to install VNC and take it out for a field test.

Is there anything special to know about installing VNC so I can use this as a headless PC like Stellarmate?

Well, Kstars and EKOS work well on the NanoPC T4, but I am still unable to get VNC to work with my Mac.
I disabled encryption on remote desktop access in Gnome - which everyone on the Lubuntu forums said was the issue, but so far no effect for me.
I still get the error that says "Connection failed to “XXX's remote desktop on Xxxxx”. The software on the remote computer appears to be incompatible with this version of Screen Sharing." So my MacBook can see the VNC server, but will not connect. :(

I'm now at a loss as to what to try next.

Try installing RealVNC: www.realvnc.com/en/
That works well on Ubuntu MATE 16.04 (Server) and on my Macbook (Client).

Hello PK
You might survey the versions of armbian that works really fine on Rockship platforms as the Tinkerboard. There is no version available today but the nanp PC is a recent. SBC. I guess the specific version will come very soon.

Hi Peter, did you already gather any experience with the GPIOs, is there any library that can be used to address the pins (such as the wiringPi lib)?

Best, Helge

One thing with vnc is that not all installations allow you to connect to a running session. Usually the default configuration of the running service is to provide a session for a user who logs in through vnc, while you probably expect the service to provide a view on the session you are currently locally logged into. I won't elaborate more, but if you think this is your issue I can probably help.

Peter,
Here are the links to RealVNC for Linux (server) and MacOS (viewer).

www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/vnc/linux/
www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/viewer/macos/

Those work great on my setup.

Is the basic setup as you think it is and getting through any firewall?
If you have something like telnet on the MAC client.
[tg@tcup]$ telnet obs 5905
Trying 192.168.1.108...
Connected to obs.
Escape character is '^]'.
RFB 003.008
Also some clients only need the last digit of the port #.

Thanks Tom. I got this:

Peters-Air:~ peterkennett$ telnet 192.168.1.73 22
Trying 192.168.1.73...
Connected to friendlyelec.
Escape character is '^]'.
SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_7.2p2 Ubuntu-4ubuntu2.4

So I have no problem connecting to the NanoPi from my MacBook via Telnet.
But no VNC, not with the built-in VNC client, not with JollyFastVNC Pro, not with VNC Viewer, and not with Chicken of the VNC. :(

Can you run "netstat" on the nanopc? If the service is running, there should be port 5900 in the list.
