I would like to setup a VNC Server that works the same way Raspbian's did (it starts at boot and allows me to view tty1). Could someone give me instructions on doing so? Thanks
What do you mean by like Raspbian? Are you trying to remote desktop your pi with vnc? Tell me more about what you want.
Raspian comes with VNC server already installed. To use it in Mate i will copy/paste what I answered in another topic:
You need to download the .deb from the webpage:
Then to start it:https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/docs/unix-start-stop.html#unix-start-stop
