Same here. After removing the old /usr/NX directory, I get


NX> 700 ERROR: Cannot change ownership of: /etc/NX/nxserver to: nx:nx.
NX> 700 Server install completed with warnings.
NX> 700 Please review the install log for details.
NX> 700 Install completed with errors at: Sun Oct 27 11:42:02 2013.
NX> 700 NoMachine was configured to run the following service:
NX> 700 NX service on port: 4000

and when I try to login with the 3.5 client, I get nx server unavailable or disabled.

BUT

when I again removed the /usr/NX directory and tried to install version 4 again, I got:

paai@breslau:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i nomachine_4.0.352_1_i386.deb
(Reading database … 354868 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace nomachine 4.0.352-1 (using nomachine_4.0.352_1_i386.deb) …
dpkg: error processing nomachine_4.0.352_1_i386.deb (–install):
subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
nomachine_4.0.352_1_i386.deb

What now?

By the way, I am very glad with the free linux NX and have been using it for almost as long as it exists.
If I did not have to pay for this excellent piece of software, I hope I made up for it by praising it on
every opportunity.
