I bought new Raspberry-pi model B with noobs OS .After configuring it, and login through PUTTY .I tried to log in through VNC.I done all supposed configuration till I managed to log through raspberry pi desktop.However I can not use any action using mouse or keyboard . just desktop showing up.Also I enabled input in VNC software . Any one experienced same problem or have an idea what is going on ?

  • Which VNC client are you using? Could it be due to you not capturing the mouse/keyboard on your desktop? Mar 10 '16 at 22:22
  • I'm using tight vnc

I just found the answer to MY problem, and thought I should share. I am using the RealVnc that came pre-loaded on Jessie, and had the same issue. When starting the realVNC program, before connecting to the Raspberry Pi that it detects, right-click on the connection, select "properties" and go to OPTIONS tab. The top section is "Picture quality" and a small check box that says View-Only. Mine was selected. My remote mouse and keyboard did not control the PI. I de-selected this "view-only" box and now it all works great. (makes sense afterwards)...
