Re: New rpi4 issues with 4k

Ok, I have it sorted for now, it works fine with XRDP from a windows machine, and Remote Desktop...But not sure how I can run from my Linux laptop... If it works OK with 4K on some VNC clients and not others, then it suggests that not all of your clients handle 4K? (Or do those clients work OK in 4...
