@Britgirl, thanks. It would probably be a good idea to update the bug description (https://www.nomachine.com/TR12K04107) with the fact that this happens only when the user is not already logged on. That would help the developers reproduce much more easily.
@drichard, thanks for the tip. I see in /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg a reference to /etc/X11/Xsession default. However, adding “env | sort > /tmp/nxenv.log” to the top of /etc/X11/Xsession does not output anything to /tmp/nxenv.log. Am I looking at the right setting in the right file?
# Specify path and name of the command to start a new virtual desktop,
# by default the X session set on the system.
DefaultDesktopCommand “/etc/X11/Xsession default”
@Britgirl, thanks for the reference to the bug. This happens to me everytime I try to connect and makes the product unusable, so maybe it could be prioritized higher than “minor”?
I upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10 and am still having the problem. What I have figure out though is that I go to the machine and physically log on then I can connect with NX. However, if I reboot and try to first logon with NX then I cannot connect.
