Looks like you'll need to enable the system service from terminal:

I can report, the same problem is effecting me.

After enabling screen sharing, there is no service listening on port 5900.

Running the vino-server from /usr/lib64/vino/vino-server binds port5900, and screen sharing starts working as expected.

Sounds like we just need to register vino-server with systemd.

So yeah this is working on unstable right now, could be a total fluke that I unbroke it with that systemd update a minute ago, but ya. it works.
Please re-open after the sync if this comes back

I think this is re-occuring right now on Solus 4.1

Seems to be occurring on my Solus 4.1 Budgie as well.

This problem still exists.
