    This is probably what is going on. I killed vncserver (which I forgot I was running). Now, the problem is that I can’t log in.

    After stopping vncserver, and restarting nxserver, I get warning: “Cannot find X servers running on this machine.” Now, when I try to login from the client, a window pops up for about half-a-second, then immediately crashes. That’s all that happens.

    To try and get around this, I tried starting lightdm (on Ubuntu 16.04) but I can’t login. What happens is that I when I try to login, I get a “system program problem detected” popup, then I get a screen with nothing but the background (can’t interact with the desktop when it is like this), and then, after a 3-4 seconds, a new login screen is presented.

    I’m an idiot. I just realized that I couldn’t have run in the remote session because I can’t type anything in the remote session. Even if I copy and paste text into the remote terminal, I can’t figure out which button corresponds to the “Enter” button.

    So I finally figured out to run: xev -event keyboard. I typed ‘qwerty’

    New Question: How should I go about debugging this?

    Background info: this is my first time using NoMachine. It’s not like I had a working version and some update ruined my settings, etc. I’m using defaults. I checked on the keyboard settings, and it says I’m using system defaults. And when I uncheck the system defaults. I unclicked that and restarted the nxserver, but nothing changed.
