    I did not succeed to find details of the cause of this inlog blockage. So as a last means I remove NoMachine from the server computer. Now logging in was no longer a problem. Subsequently I reinstalled the newest version and also no problem occurred. In the future I will be aware of the special situation of not being logged in in the server and will avoid it.

    As for my problem this thread can be closed.


    EDIT: I continued my search. In tty2:

    ~$ ps -ax |grep ssh

    1533 ?Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/sshd -D

    2076 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin im-launch env gnome-session — session=ubuntu

    8576 tty2 0:00 grep –color=auto ssh

    #So 2 processes are running out of tt2. I killed proces 2076:

    ~$ sudo kill -9 2076

    ~$ ps -ax |grep ssh

    1533 …….

    2076 ? Zs 0:00 [ssh-agent] <defunct>

    9040 tty2 ……..

    ~$ ps axo stat,ppid,pid,comm |grep defunct

    Zs 1962 2076 ssh-agent <defunct>

    # so, 1962 is the parent process which did not stop the child 2076

    ~$ sudo kill -9 1962

    # now I can login at tty1 in the GUI, but I have to do this exercise each time I will login to my desktop.

    I am looking for further help, please, to definitely solve this problem. Thnx in advance!




    I had a similar problem but with bad result. Started desktop (Ubuntu 18.04.1, GNOME3.28) without switching on monitor and without logging in. Accessed remote desktop from laptop (Mint 18.3, Cinnamon). After some mouse clicks got logged in with an Ubuntu screen without launcher and without system tray. I could not do anything on the remote host including logging out. So I went to the desktop and tried to login locally. But got an endless loop: each time I entered my password (correctly, for I could read it after choosing “show text”) I got the login screen anew. Logging in in tty2 goes well.

    I tried all the tips on the internet to circumvent this problem with no avail. After a full day of searching the internet and trying out all the suggestions I am desperate.

    Please, can anybody give me some clues as to how tackle this problem? I need my desktop now so I will be very graceful!

    NoMachine versions: desktop (remote); laptop (client) 5.2.11_1
