I think this is a recurrent issue, but after trying some staff read in this forums I decided to do a post. I have restarted the nxserver and disabled wayland but the issue does not disappear.
In attached you can find the connection log. Any more information you need I will provide.
Thanks in advance.March 23, 2020 at 11:52 #26089BritgirlKeymaster
What OS and version is on the client? What Linux is it on the server side?
The logs didn’t attach. I would send both client side and server side to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.March 24, 2020 at 08:43 #26112
OS version in local is Ubuntu 17.10, client is NoMachine 6.9.2.
Server side is an Amazon AMI, OpenSUSE Leap 42.1 x86-64

As this is Amazon virtual machine it is probably headless from the start, so there might be a few issues associated with this.
Did you had to install Xserver and graphic environment manually or it came with it?
If you did install it afterwards, are you sure it is running? If yes – here is the problem, that NoMachine did not recognize it.
If no, the NoMachine will try to run the virtual session instead, but it need to be supplied with proper application path as to what to run.
Please check the node.cfg file for key DefaultDesktopCommand and see what is there, and make sure it points to the desktop environment
you installed. If it points to the generic Xsession script it may not be enough for operating system to run it.
If there is a physical session running and we did not recognize it, we will require the server logs for debugging. Please also note that very rarely after
installing the desktop environment the operating system requires restarting of NoMachine to be able to properly recognize the desktop.
Article on how to collect logs:
https://www.nomachine.com/DT10O00163 (“How to gather debug logs for support requests”)
Please enable the debug and then do
You can use the command
/etc/NX/nxserver --debug --collect
after the restart for NoMachine to automatically collect and pack the logs.
Please send the logs to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com using the title of that forum’s thread as the mail’s subject.

Thank you for answering,
I have to say that I have been working with the same Amazon AMI, with the same instance and configuration and with NoMachine since January and everything has worked properly. This happens to me only since a few days. So maybe is related with some update, but the only one I remember is related with the internet connection device.
NX server came with it, I didn’t install it later.
In DefaultDesktopCommand I can see: “dbus-launch –exit-with-session gnome-session –session=ubuntu”March 30, 2020 at 08:11 #26283
Please, I need an answer.March 30, 2020 at 11:16 #26309MthContributor
If it worked before the update- something may have changed in the system that we were not able to handle. And the most probable thing here is the
update to gnome.
My question remains though. Do you run a headless physical session or make NoMachine to run desktop on virtual session.
If its the later, you probably need to update the DefaultDesktopCommand to what is right now used by the gnome.
If you run:
grep ^Exec /usr/share/xsessions/*.desktop
command You will get how the system is running installed desktop environments.
If you are running headless physical session, we need logs to check why it is not detected.
/MthMarch 31, 2020 at 08:25 #26341
That’s what I get when executing the command you said:
“/usr/share/xsessions/ubuntu.desktop:Exec=env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=ubuntu gnome-session –session=ubuntu
/usr/share/xsessions/ubuntu-xorg.desktop:Exec=env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=ubuntu gnome-session –session=ubuntu
/usr/share/xsessions/unity.desktop:Exec=/usr/lib/gnome-session/run-systemd-session unity-session.target”April 7, 2020 at 07:22 #26563
So that’s what I found.
Any suggestion?April 10, 2020 at 11:37 #26661
I hope that health is on your side, and I also wish you a happy Easter.
I would like to have a solution for this. Last day I could work with NoMachine properly I finished with a simulation and since then I’m not able to see the results… I have done the work but I have no acces to it.
I don’t understand where is the issue, because you only refer to one configuration but I imagine that there are two configurations, one from my local machine and other from AWS server, so please, refer always the side you are talking about. The AWS image is not mine, is public, so an error there would be rare.
I don’t know what is a “headless phisical session” or a “virtual session”. Since the initials I opened my AWS console, activated my preconfigured server, open up a terminal and connect to it by ssh command. Finally open a NoMachine connection to view the server desktop. Very simple.
At least, I would appreciate to know how all the related configuration should be, and I’m going to make my best in order to find and change it.
Many thanks.April 10, 2020 at 16:40 #26677kroyContributor
On the openSUSE instance what is the GUI Desktop Environment (DE) installed?
That output which you paste was from Ubuntu (March 31st). We need the server-side output.
To check what DE it is on the OpenSuse instance on the server side, you need to connect there via ssh and execute command:
grep ^Exec /usr/share/xsessions/*.desktop.
If there is no installed GUI, you need to install one. For example with command:
sudo zypper in -t pattern x11 gnome_basicApril 14, 2020 at 08:11 #26692
Dear Mr. Kroy,
This is what I get:
So I think it has already installed xfce environment. What do you think?April 14, 2020 at 13:50 #26707kroyContributor
Yes, it’s XFCE. Please check DefaultDesktopCommand in the /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg (still on server side). It should be set similar:
If there is other value please modify it. Then it should start to work.April 17, 2020 at 09:20 #26844
So, what do you think?April 17, 2020 at 09:21 #26846
