    Dear all,

    I have installed NoMachine on my Windows 8.1 and I’m connecting to Ubuntu 16.04. I can see the screen of my Linux machine, but when I click in the window or use the keyboard, nothing happens!! Could you please help me figure this out?

    Thanks

    Have you got the chance of launching xev tool on the Ubuntu desktop to check that input events are forwarded?

    This is possible if you have access to the server machine: open a terminal window and type

    xev

    It is possible xev is not installed, in that case install with

    sudo apt-get install x11-utils

    After you launched xev, a small window shows up and input events are recorded in the terminal window.

    Leave xev running, don’t close that window.

    When you connect to Ubuntu from remote, xev will print mouse/keyboard events in the terminal. Or nothing if no input event is forwarded.
