Upon further testing, restarting the remote linux PC, then connecting a monitor and logging in seems to solve the problem. I tried connected with NoMachine while logged in with a monitor to the remote PC and was successful. Then I logged off and disconnected the cable from the monitor of the remote PC and connected successfully to the remote PC as well.
Not a real solution for someone without access to the remote PC but that worked form me.danartParticipant
Hi, thanks for the reply.
The on the machine I try to connect to, the distro is Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS (Xenial Xerus)
I’m using free nomachine downloaded from the official site version 6.11.2 on both machines.
I’m not sure about the x server as everything worked before with the older nomachine versions. But I tried installing x server on the remote linux machine and still had trouble connecting.
output for DefaultDesktopCommand : “/etc/X11/Xsession ‘gnome-session –session=ubuntu'”
Probably I changed the default port few years ago but I can’t really remember.
When I try to connect to this machine it asks me “Cannot detect any display running. Do you want NoMachine to create a new display and proceed to connect to the desktop?” After I press “yes” it is connected for a few seconds and shows the wallpaper of the remote linux and then disconnects.
Would appreciate any help.
PS: isn’t it great how this free software harass me to download updates every few days, yet after I update it completely breaks its core function 🙂 but hey, its free!
