Thin(ish) terminal without PXE

I am trying to set up a "Thin" terminal on an old T23 ThinkPad laptop, 
but I'm not looking to set up a PXE server for it to boot off of. 
Instead I have installed a basic copy of Debian on it (used LXDE just to 
see that the graphics would work), and have set up x2gothinclient as the 
"display manager" (ratherthan the default lightdm).

The problem I've seen thus far is there is no way to define a x2go login 
profile, which I would need to even use it at all.  The "example" 
profiles on the login screen cannot be edited, and they don't go 
anyplace (at least no place in MY home network).  There also isn't 
anyplace on the login screen to add new ones (the way you would if you 
brought up the x2client on a regular desktop session).

Pulseaudio doesn't start on Win7

Hello list, greetings!

I have the following setup runing:
A docker-container providing a rudimental desktop (fluxbox on debian)
A Win7PC which gets the desktop using x2Go.

All is working as expected but the pulseaudio server on the win7-client 
doesn't start automatically.
If I use an external pulseaudio.exe with an lightly modified default.pa 
the pulseaudio-sever starts.
After that "trick" I have to edit .pulse-client.conf in my 
docker-container for sending audio to my win7-pulseserver and it will 
work.
The drawback is: I cannot use the ssh-tunnel from x2go for the audio 
... it is not established cause of the missing port of the not startet 
"internal" pulseserver.

Is there a chance to give an modified default.pa to the "internal" 
pulseaudio-server of the x2go-client or even better: is it possible to 
use an "external" pulseaudio.exe with the x2go-client?

The next "problem" for an automated workaround (starting pulseaudio 
with script prior to the x2go-client) is, that the x2go-client seems to 
use port 4714 for untunneled connections. Does someone now the parameter 
for changing the pulseaudio-serverport from 4713 to 4714 for the 
pulse-audio-windows-version 1.1? This is the most "dirty" hack ... but 
should do the work in this case. The other way round is of course 
although possible: change the port the x2go-client expects his 
"internal" server. This way the .pulse-client.conf in the docker-desktop 
would be build correct for this szenario.

x2go Client not connecting. Where to get more info?

Hi,
I am trying to connect a Windows 7 machine to a Mint/Cinnamon server with desktop sharing enabled.

I see the ssh connection apparently successful from auth.log:
Nov 11 17:57:42 myPC sshd[31369]: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for myUser from 10.0.0.5 port 49481 ssh2
Nov 11 17:57:42 myPC sshd[31369]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user sms1\dcostantini by (uid=0)

If I try a wrong password it fails, so up to SSH all seems ok.

But the client shows nothing, it is greyed out (but seems not frozen) and I can only close the window.

Is there some log on the client? Maybe I can find the blocker there and report for more help.
I read that Cinnamon was an issue but it should be working now, right?

Thanks,
Diego

x2go client and numeric pad

Hi,

We have problems with  x2go and numeric pad.

The keys in numeric pad  seem to work in random manner,
some of them  display digits, some are blank, some work like arrow keys.

Server: Mint 17,  native X2Go client.
We have tested  both Autodetect and Configured  keyboards:
pc105 fi
pc105 et
pc105 de
by using WinXP; Win 8.1; Win7 and Mint 17 X2Go clients.

pc105 + us works until nobody touch "Num-Lock"  button.
Press it twice (off & on again) and after that randomly some numbers are ok 
some not,
even same button gives random results.

Should I use another Keyboard layout?
Is somewhere a list about alternatives?

Robert

Error: "Failed to restore all the required visuals"

Server: Debian "Jessie"
X2Go Server: 4.0.1.18-0x2go1+git20141006.949+wheezy.main.1
Client: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
X2Go Client: 4.0.3.0 (Qt - 4.8.6)

Hi,

I am using X2Go to access a headless Debian (Jessie) machine from Windows 7. At some time in the last couple of days I must have closed or aborted the connection from the client without cleanly shutting down the server session.

Now when I try to open a session to the machine I get the error-
Failed to restore all the required visuals
Can't resume the NX session on this display
I can see XFCE session and a bunch of other X services running on the server. I can of course just log into the server using SSH and kill all the X processes (or reboot the machine) but that will lose any work in windows that are still open on the server.

Is X2Go able to reconnect to an existing server session? If not is there a better way to clean things up than just killing server processes?

Regards

"Whole screen" mode without capturing the cursor

Server: Debian "Jessie"
X2Go Server: 4.0.1.18-0x2go1+git20141006.949+wheezy.main.1
Client: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
X2Go Client: 4.0.3.0 (Qt - 4.8.6)

Hi,

I am using X2Go to access a headless Debian (Jessie) machine from Windows 7.

My Windows machine has 3 screens. What I want to do is dedicate one screen to the X2Go session to the server, but still be able to use the other 2 screens on the client.

Currently X2Go lets me choose either-
  1. Windowed mode, where the cursor can move in or out of the X2Go window
  2. Fullscreen mode, where X2Go captures the cursor
What I want is a 3rd mode-
  • Dedicate one client screen to X2Go, but allow the (client, Windows) cursor to move in or out of the X2Go window

Is this possible?

Regards-

little error in wiki

Hi all

I think there's an error in the wiki on page

http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/wiki:repositories:ubuntu

The ubuntu 14.04 command

    sudoapt-get installpython-software-common

didn't work and should be

    sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

Thanks for all the work
