lsmod says nxusb is loaded. I built it again following the instructions just in case. lsusb sometimes reports an NX USB bus but not always. Even when the NX USB bus shows up the camera doesn’t seem to get remoted, though I’m not sure what /dev/ entry it would show up as.
Don’t think this is related to the application, because the focus gets locked on different applications at different times: IntelliJ Idea, Firefox, gterm, …. When the focus is locked, if I try to move or resize any window it will move or resize only the window to which the focus is locked.
It happens at random – I don’ think its some key combination I’m pressing. But I will watch carefully to see if that is the case.
I’ve tried pressing modifier keys, and combination of modifier keys but it doesn’t unlock the focus.
There was a similar issue with an earlier version of NoMachine (see https://www.nomachine.com/TR12K04101). There the advice was to try running ‘xdotool key XF86Ungrab’. I tried that, and it seems to work sometimes but not always.
It does seem to be related to the bandwidth of my connection. If I am hardwired to my router it almost never happens. If I am connecting over WiFi it happens all the time.
Disconnecting and reconnecting *always* fixes it (for a while).
The TR doesn’t quite capture my problem(s). Please see my other post re. recreating NoMachine sources and sinks as well – its not just that things get suspended, its that they disappear altogether. Its simple enough to avoid the suspend-on-idle: one can simply unload the module immediately after remoting in via
pactl module-unload module-suspend-on-idle
Also the recipe I describe, of creating an “alias” for the microphone via module-remap-source doesn’t seem to work all the time. I’m unable to figure out what make it work or not work.
Now I’m the state where the NoMachine sources and sinks have all completely disappeared, even though audio features are turned on.
Attaching output of
pactl list sinks
pactl list sources
show “Monitor of Dummy Output” and “Dummy Output”.
In verifying the fix for this issue, can you test that https://test.webrtc.org/ is able to find the microphone?
Now I am completely unable to get the microphone working. Earlier I was able to do that by remapping the source nx_voice_out.monitor via:
pactl load-module module-remap-source master=nx_voice_out.monitor source_name=Microphone pactl set-default-source Microphone
As to the sources disappearing. I don’t have a recipe for reproducing it. I am not killing pulseaudio, which does make them disappear. I’m not doing anything other than remapping as above. I will post the outputs you ask for immediately that the disappearance happens next.
