    Now I tried some steps around, but there was no success.

    I made a fresh install of NoMachine Workstation.

    I edit /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg and activated the physical desktop to all users with

    PhysicalDesktopSharing 1

    Add a new desktop user

    Reboot the machine

    Connect the desktop user via NoMachine

    Logged in the desktop-user with the physical desktop – and logged out

    Canceled the connection and reconnect with NoMachine.

    Create a new virtual desktop.

    Now I see the (wrong) blue xfce desktop.

    Then I logged out the virtual desktop and logged in with root and removed .config/xfce4 Folder from my desktop-user.

    Logged in the desktop-user with the physical desktop – and logged out

    Create with the desktop-user a new virtual desktop.

    Again I see the (wrong) blue xfce desktop.

    Than logged out and logged in the desktop-user with the physical desktop. Now I see the (good) black xfce- desktop with some little damages. Some icons in the taskbar are corrupt.

    Hmmm …? Very tricky. What can I do now?

    Thank you for your reply. I tested your workaround. But without any success. After the login via NoMachine the physical desktop is also “damaged”. Removing the xfce-config folder rebuild the desktop only in some parts. for example: the menu and the taskbar are in the old-style or corrupt.

    And the virtual desktops were not affected by this action.

    That way didnt work. 🙁

    Any suggestions?

    Hi @carin,

    thanks for your help!

    sudo grep DefaultDesktopCommand /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg

    Output from Zorin OS:

    DefaultDesktopCommand "/usr/bin/ssh-agent /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session x-session-manager"

    I changed the node.cfg like you described.

    … and change DefaultDesktopCommand to something like this:

    env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=zorin ...

    Something like this?? Exact THIS line helps! Wow! Thank you!! 🙂

    But a question: where can I find such an information, if I have an other desktop that I have to configure? Is there a link I can read information like this?
