Bug Description

Apparently the functionality of vino-preferences was merged into gnome-control-center for 18.04. But since Lubuntu does not include gnome-control-center, there is no way to set up vino.,

Same problem here, but with Xubuntu 18.04.

Xubuntu 18.04 :

utilisateur@ordinateur:~$ vino-preferences
vino-preferences : commande introuvable

Without that, how to enable desktop sharing, how to set a vnc password ?

I'm trying x11vnc but its thousands options are not easy to deal with.

And I just discovered Tigervnc is now available in Ubuntu-repository but am not sure how to make it autostart with session in my quite simple user-case…

Vino was rather simple and efficient for my little usage.

You can downgrade to version 3.8.1-0ubuntu12 from the xenial repos and it will work on bionic.

I had that same issue with xubuntu after 18.04 upgrade. First install vino. Mine was removed on upgrade without any notice. Also even after installing vino, the command vino-preferences doesn't work. Here is an easy workaround. Install dconf-editor then open it and go to org-gnome-desktop-remote access and turn off encryption. There are also several other remote options you can set in dconf-editor. However until you install vino, the remote-access doesn't show in dconf-editor. I hope someone can explain what happened to vino-preferences.

The settings for vino got moved into the general gnome desktop
preferences, and vino-preferences was removed without thinking about
those of use who don't use gnome :(

You can use another vnc server that the GNOME one for those usecases...
