    My setup:

    Client: 2 monitors, each 1680×1050

    Server: 2 monitors, one 1680×1050, one 1920×1200. Before change both monitors connected to Intel builtin graphics, after change both monitors connected to NVidia graphics card and the third monitor connected to builtin graphics but disabled in KDE display settings due to issues with vsync on the third monitor.

    Both client and server run Fedora 24, KDE Plasma 5.6.4, NoMachine (free) 5.1.26-10.x86_64

    Problem:

    I’ve been using “Resize remote screen” together with “Fullscreen on all screens” successfully for some time in the above setup before change. Server’s monitor with resolution of 1920×1200 was automatically resized to match client resolution of 1680×1050 and I had both remote monitors “mapped” onto two local monitors 1:1. After change however, I see only screen from one remote monitor centered across two local monitors (half of remote screen is on one local monitor and the other half is on the other local monitor).

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Hi Piotr. Can you check if the “Change monitor” button in Display menu panel is set to “ALL”?

    Tor,

    Yes, “Change monitor” is set to “ALL”. After restarting remote computer the behavior changed. Now, I see both remote screens side by side which is ok, but “Resize remote screen” still does not work thus remote screens are being displayed on one big canvas with resolution of (1680+1920)x1200.

    After choosing “Resize remote screen” for a few times while connected I see some graphical artifacts on the remote screen as if the process of resizing was started but in the end screen is not resized. Subsequent use of “Resize remote screen” option has zero effect (not even graphical artifacts are visible) which suggests remote system “stops” listening for resize command/event. I could record the whole process if desired.

    Piotr, the screen recording would be very useful. Could you please also gather logs by following these instructions: https://www.nomachine.com/DT07M00098. You can send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com by using the title of the post as subject.
    Thank you.
