Also with regards to removing configuration options (we don’t want to confuse users and we know best), when using rootless mode to run an application it opens up the connection settings window. We would like to be able to disable this. So the only window that opens when we open a session that starts a web browser is the browser window itself.
Okay thanks for the feedback. The knowledge base entry “https://www.nomachine.com/AR02L00782” is not very clear about server side graphics hardware utilisation. I’m not sure what it means by server side hardware acceleration?
I see that when we specify “lightweight” mode the rootless window seems to draw correctly. Can you select between vp8/h264/lightweight sessions as a client option? We require reasonable video playback across the LAN to clients machines so I suspect that NX compression is not going to as good as h264 for our purposes.
I managed to get the VGL stuff working by running startx as root so I suspect something isn’t working with gdm/kdm.
