    Hello,

    We recently upgraded from 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS (GNOME) and find that we cannot connect to the Workstation server on the Linux machine and successfully create new virtual desktops. We can ONLY connect if there is a local user logged in and connect to the physical desktop of that user’s login.

    I’ve verified that the Workstation version is definitely installed on the Ubuntu machine:

    /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –version

    NoMachine Workstation Subscription – Version 4.6.3

     

    We are trying to connect from Windows 7 x64 and OS X 10.10.3

    Thanks you.

    Hello,

    It is a quick fix:

    1. Comment out a  line with the ‘DefaultDesktopCommand’ key in /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg.

    Only add in the beginning of the line ‘#’.
    2. Add below old key:

    DefaultDesktopCommand “/etc/gdm/Xsession ‘gnome-session
    –session=gnome'”

    If this doesn’t help you, could you prepare more logs for us:
    1. Uncomment ‘SessionLogLevel’ in /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg and set a value 7:

    before:
    #SessionLogLevel 6

    after:
    SessionLogLevel 7

    2. After that restart nxserver:

    sudo /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –restart

    3. Reproduce the problem (try to run a new virtual desktop)

    4. Send to NoMachine:
    – /var/log/syslog
    – /var/log/Xorg.*.log
    – home $HOME/.xsession-errors
    – /usr/NX/var/log dir.
