Can't remotely control Ubuntu 20 after a reboot until I log in on the physical server

It shows the computer as online after a remote restart, but then I still cannot connect (just fails with no error message) until I log in locally.  After that I can connect remotely and everything works fine.  The target computer is running Ubuntu 20.04 and TeamViewer 15 (start with system is checked).

Old posts regarding Ubuntu 18 had a workaround (here) and (here) but it does not work on Ubuntu 20.

Thanks

No update to this in a month?

Anyone else having problems. I just installed Debian 10 and TV Host 15. I'm having the exact same problems.

Re: Can't remotely control Ubuntu 20 after a reboot until I log in on the physical server

I had a similar problem with my Ubuntu 20.04/20.10 Desktop.

I solved it by completely disabling Wayland because on my machine it was enabled for the login screen but not for the desktop. So I could only connect after login in.

How to disable: https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-enable-disable-wayland-on-ubuntu-20-04-desktop

Current state of Wayland + TeamViewer: https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Linux-EN/State-of-Wayland-amp-TeamViewer/td-p/26340
