Tagged: usb sharing empty
September 12, 2021 at 11:49 #35230
I’m facing an issue with NoMachine client on MacOS 11.4 (the server running on an ubuntu 20.04); When I want to share a USB device, the list is empty while a Logitech joypad was plugged in.
That’s an issue I’m used to solve on Linux where I usually have to recompile nxusb.ko (as given here : https://tutos.metz.centralesupelec.fr/TPs/NoMachine/index.html#when-it-fails) but unfortunately, I do know about the procedure on a MacOS client ; I wandered around, unsuccessfully, in the /Applications folder.
Can anyone provde me some track to follow to solve this issue ? I do not know if this might be related to some other posts (such as the one on kext : https://forums.nomachine.com/topic/nomachine-for-mac-does-not-install-usb-kext)
Thank you for your help.September 13, 2021 at 09:51 #35237Giorgi-G.Contributor

Hi, Thank you for this feedback which worked for one user running Mac OS 10.14 (For sure that was a 10.xx not sure about the 14); For this user, as soon as sharing the device was selected in NoMachine, the security app of MacOS poped up and we were able to accept the use of the extension
But, unfortunately, that did not work for 2 or 3 users that were running a 11.x MacOS. As far as I remember, there was a 11.5.2, a 11.4, and another.
For example, for the 11.5.2 user, you see on the screenshot attached to this message that the device list is empty and nothing appears on the “Security and confidentiality” where I would have expected to see something about the nomachine extension. The user tried to uninstall and reinstall NoMachine expecting the message to appear again but unfortunately not.
Do you have another suggestion on the way to proceed ?September 14, 2021 at 12:01 #35255BritgirlKeymaster

Please run this command in the terminal
ls -l /Library/Application\ Support/NoMachine/Extensions/ | grep nxusb
If the output is empty, the patch we sent you yesterday should fix it.September 22, 2021 at 14:22 #35390
I’m unable to test your command because I do not possess the computer.
But indeed, the script you sent me yesterday solved the problem. I will answer the result on the other original thread.
Thank you for your help.
