    Most of the time when I open a connection to a Linux Mint 20.1 computer on my local network from my Win7 client the screen is out of focus, the wrong resolution and the mouse does not point to where the cursor is. The attached screenshot (NoMachine – wrong.jpg) shows a typical example where the resolution has increased from its 1600 x 900 setting and no longer fits in the window. The mouse is unusable since if you click on it the coordinates are no where near where the cursor is pointing.

    In this example I got very lucky and the next try worked correctly as shown in NoMachine – right.jpg. Usually it takes several tries to get a workable connection and has even taken as many as 27 tries before getting a usable connection.

    My settings are Enable Viewport Mode and 1600 x 900 (NoMachine settings.jpg). Some servers remember the slider 1600 x 900 setting and use it for subsequent sessions. Most do not remember it and default to a resolution that does fit on the screen. For those servers I check the “Use custom resolution” box. (It’s awkward to have to use the arrow to back out of this screen by 3 steps. Please add a done button.)

    I use the free 7.5.2 version. My client is Windows 7 and all my servers are headless Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon 4.8.6 computers with 1080 Ti, 2080 Ti or 3080 GPUs with a dummy load plugged in their HDMI port.

    Hi Aurum,

    In order for us to investigate we need you to collect and send us both client and server-side logs.
    Please see the following article for guidance: Collect server and client logs manually

    Can you please send them directly to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com making sure you use the title of the topic in the subject of your email? Thanks!

    Captured several cases of this happening on attempted server connections. Also attached new client log covering these same instances.

    This problem is getting worse. I spend far more time just connecting, disconnecting, trying again, repeat…than actually doing the work on the server I need to do.

    Also, I’ve had times when I got a usable server screen and started a multi-step process and it switched to the useless unfocused screen mode forcing me to disconnect and repeatedly attempt to connect to finish the work I’d started.
