    I’ve just installed NoMachine Enterprise client 5.2.11 after installing the full RPM on a CentOS 7 machine (the client RPM replaced the server when installed), and there’s no icon for the client appearing in the Applications list in Gnome default session. Looking in /usr/share/applications/NoMachine-nxs.desktop, I see the following line:

    NoDisplay=true

    Is NoMachine client meant to be hiding from menus?

    Hello iainhallam

    When you installed package nomachine_5.2.11_1_x86_64.rpm you
    shouldn’t install nomachine-enterprise-client because nomachine
    ‘server’ package also includes ‘client’ part. If you need on
    your machine only NoMachine client, please just run as root:

    /usr/NX/scripts/setup/nxplayer --update

    This fixes the problem with ‘Applications’ menu entry.

    If you need installed server and client parts on your machine,
    please remove existing package:

    rpm -e nomachine-enterprise-client

    and install again:

    rpm -i nomachine_5.2.11_1_x86_64.rpm

    I realised that I didn’t want the full package, only the client. Thanks for the fix.

    Is that a bug in the installer, though? When replacing the server installation, surely it should run the setup?

    Yes it’s a bug, it’ll be fixed in a next release.
