In VNC Viewer After Logout in GUI  (System -> Logout ), if attempting to reconnect VNC to the Linux desktop (Gnome), items such as Menu & desktop tools have disappeared. Reconnecting via vnc viewer with the same users (applies to all users who ever logout even if they login again ) still cannot see anything, and the vnc service on the server needs to be restarted to see them again. The requirement is to see the Login screen after Logout.
