    I have been searching a lot online about this issue. I am using a macbook pro at home to connect to my Ubuntu 18.04 in the office. The quality is always bad, it seems like the whole screen is blurry. I tried to change the settings within the NoMachine app with no good. Please help me. See pics in attachment.

    Hi,

    I see you have ‘Fit to window’ mode enabled (the small icon furthest to the left of the quick action icons that you can see at the bottom of the screenshot you have sent). Please try to disable it and see if it helps.

    I also tried to use the “resize to match the resolution of the client” and got the result in the attachment. The sharpness is till bad.

    Hi,

    there is one thing you can try as a workaround: on server side open terminal and execute:

    • xrandr --output OUTPUT --fb 2560x1600 --panning 2560x1600 if you have 13″ MBP
    • xrandr --output OUTPUT --fb 2880x1800 --panning 2880x1800 if you have 15″ MBP

    Where OUTPUT is your output’s name you can get from xrandr -q (for example VGA-0, LVDS-1). This should set your server’s screen size to Retina’s pixel resolution.

    Alright, thank you for that. I have signed for the notification. I have noticed that the request is from 2014, I hope this can be solved in the next major update…
