Kiosk question

Sat Nov 18, 2017 10:46 pm

I have my pi 3 set up in kiosk mode to open two tabs and switch between them using the "revolver" chrome extension. Why is it that sometimes when I VNC into the box, I see the kiosk browser open but on the monitor itself all I see is the desktop wallpaper. The reverse is true sometimes too that when I VNC into it, I see the desktop and on the monitor is the kiosk browser. Help!

Which VNC server do you use on the Pi, and which address/port do you use to log in.

It sounds to me that you have two desktops (one on monitor, and one in VNC) therefore they don't mirror each other.
Usually that means that you use port "5901" or display ":1" when you connect to VNC server.
