    I had a problem with low screen resolution – similar to:

    https://www.nomachine.com/forums/topic/ubuntu-16-04-headless-resolution-stuck-1024×768#post-11035

    When I solve it according to the link (stop lightdm and restart nxserver), I can connect with NoMachine at maximum resolution, but the session runs without Unity (no menu bars). On restart, I’m once again stuck at low resolution.

    This is what lshw -C display gives:
    *-display

    mousomer,

    I suggest to try the new version 5.2.11.

    On restart, I’m once again stuck at low resolution.

    Disable lightdm so it won’t restart on boot:

    sudo systemctl disable lightdm
