Testers Wanted for X2Go Client 4.0.3.0 nightly Windows builds built with MinGW 4.8 instead of 4.4

The new MinGW 4.8 builds are under here:
http://code.x2go.org/releases/binary-win32/x2goclient/heuler/mingw32-4.8/qt-4.8/
The old MinGW 4.4 builds are under here:
http://code.x2go.org/releases/binary-win32/x2goclient/heuler/mingw32-4.4/qt-4.8/

Tester feedback (in the form of emails or bug reports) will help me
decide whether to make the official release of X2Go Client 4.0.3.0
based on MinGW 4.4 or MinGW 4.8.

Last I heard, X2Go Client 4.0.3.0 is scheduled to be released sometime
next month.

If you encounter a bug/issue, please test if the corresponding MinGW
4.4 build is affected also.

You can tell what build you are running by going to help -> About Qt.
MinGW 4.4 builds use Qt 4.8.5. MinGW 4.8 builds use Qt 4.8.6

Technically the builds are not "nightly builds" because they are
automatically built whenever an x2goclient git commit is pushed to
code.x2go.org.

The 7 characters at the end of the version string is the git short
hash of the git commit (revision) it was built from. This enables
testers and developers to identify what exact version of X2Go Client
they are using when there are multiple commits the same day. I just
updated our build scripts to add this feature. (Final releases will
not have a hash at the end of their version string.)

More details about the MinGW upgrade here:

How to install properly on CentOS 7

Hi,

Installed from EPEL but cannot start because init things not created in 
/etc at install. Is it a known problem?

Tried with Ubuntu 14.04 and works like a charm.

No system tray for remote applications

Greetings.

My host machine runs KDE 4 on openSUSE.  Occasionally I want to run remote 
KDE applications such as KTorrent or Kopete which are supposed to display 
an icon in the system tray.  However, when invoked over x2goclient, the 
remote application's system tray icon is never displayed in my local 
machine's system tray.  This is especially frustrating for applications 
which I've set to start minimized to the system tray by default, since then 
I have no way of getting them to appear on my desktop.  (They run in the 
background just fine, but I have no way of interacting with them.)

I was wondering if this is a known issue or if there's something I'm doing 
wrong.  If this is a known issue, is it something that needs to be fixed in 
x2goclient or in the KDE applications themselves?

Regards,
Tristan

Interesting!

Hmmm...

No, not at all. Most connections around me are async DSL  
connections... Works perfectly.

For debugging... Does the same issue occur if you use pyhoca-gui  
instead of X2Go Client?

What OS is the client-side: Linux/Windows/MacOSX?

Asyncron bandwith issue

Hi
One of my users have a 20/3 Mb/s connection, and experience problems 
when he connects to our server. The problem is that the icons do not 
refresh, and that the desktop stalles if he does certain actions, like 
right-clicking a mailbox folder in Thunderbird to display a list of options.

The problem does not occur, if the same user log in from a 20/20 
connection, or even a 3G dongle with approx 3 Mb bandwith.
Continous ping test with packet size of 25000, for 3 hours shows no 
packet dropped to the server for his 20/3 connection.

What would you recommend as proper network settings, or how we 
troubleshoot the issue ?

regards
Kjetil Fleten

installing x2go on CentOS 6 , SQLite db error

Dear x2go Users,

I have tried to install x2go (EPEL 6 version) to a CentOS 6.5 machine. The
installation worked (I've had to add fuse and fuse-sshfs and a few perl
modules, including perl-SQLite-DBD). However when I try to connect a
client, or to run x2golistsessions on the server, I get the following
error:

Connection failed DBD::SQLite::db prepare failed: no such table: sessions
at /usr/lib64/x2go/x2gosqlitewrapper.pl line 467. Can't call method
"execute" on an undefined value at /usr/lib64/x2go/x2gosqlitewrapper.pl
line 475. 

Could you please suggest how this problem is to be fixed? Thank you very
much in advance!

x2goplugin on windows

Hello,

I compiled the npx2goplugin.dll plugin and put it in the plugins
directory of a firefox portable or chrome portable on Windows 7 or
Windows XP.

In the list of installed plugins the plugin is listed and activated in
both browsers but when I call the webserver address of the x2go Site,
Chrome says the plugin cannot be loaded and Firefox stays at a white
window. The server side is working fine because a linux client with a
precompiled x2goclient-plugin can connect without any problems.

I installed the prerequisites as listed in
http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/wiki:development:build-howto-mswin:x2goclient
to compile the plugin.

- Fetched the latest git version 4.0.3.0
- Adapted x2goclient\x2goclient.rc because of an compile error
- Adapted
x2goclient\qtbrowserplugin-2.4_1-opensource\src\qtbrowserplugin_p.h
because of an compile error
- run config_win_plugin.bat and build_win_plugin.bat

The plugin npx2goplugin.dll is created with a size of 12752 KB.

When I try to run this plugin on the same host where the build
environment is installed, the plugin is loaded with an error "X-Server
cannot be started", but I think this is a configuration error but at
least it gets loaded. Does this mean, that some (Qt?) libraries are
missing for running the plugin on hosts with no Qt build environment?

Resume from different client?

I'd like to be able to keep one x2go session running but disconnect
and resume from different clients (Windows desktop, Mac, Windows
Laptop), but generally when I try to connect from a client other than
the one that started the session I can see the session listed but the
resume option is grayed out.

Should this work or are there some constraints on the client type or
hardware differences?

I am actually working on such a solution based on MATE.

You could simply create the user homedir (copied from a skel dir) on  
system boot in a RAM disk.

x2gothinclient - one user on server, multiple sessions

Hi,

we think about use the x2gothinclient for our unix-clients.
On all clients we've the same standarduser and settings.

Is it possible to use the server from all clients with the same user without resume or overtook exists sessions?

Bye

Caps-lock key as Ctrl

Hi, 

This probably another Caps Lock problem with remote desktop applications. I am an emacs user and I have made Caps-lock key an additional control key on both of my computers (using similar settings as http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/MovingTheCtrlKey#toc2 ). All my computers are running Mate desktop 1.8 and Caps-lock key work as expected (i.e. as ctrl) on both computers on local session. However, when I am connected to the other computer using x2go pressing caps-lock key seem to do nothing at all on remote session - pressing caps-c just prints lowercase c in terminal (& in emacs). Checking the output on xev on remote session does show keycode 66.

This issue is really getting into my work flow as I am a heavy emacs user. Is there a solution or workaround? Could using a custom ~/.xmodmap resolve the issue? I just want caps-lock key to always work as ctrl and I am fine with totally getting rid of caps-lock behavior. 

PS: Thanks a lot for developing x2go. It is really convenient piece of software. 

Thanks, 
CB
