I am running NoMachine Free, version 5.1.9 from a Windows 10 client to a headless OS X 10.11.4 host.
For some strange reason control drag on xcode refuses to work. It seems to be the only thing that doesn’t work, because other shortcuts with the ctrl key do work.
People seem to correlate that issue to VNC and Xcode so I wanted to open a ticket and see if this is a known issue with NoMachine as well and whether a workaround is available.
I’d also like to know if this issue is reproducible by others.
Thank you,March 31, 2016 at 08:08 #10784
for the record, I plugged in a physical display, keyboard and mouse and then tried ctrl drag and it worked.
Therefore, this is certainly a bug with NoMachine.
Since many operations within Xcode can only be done using ctrl + drag, can this issue be flagged critical, unless there is a workaround.

a possible solution is on the way. I’d like you help us to test it when ready. It should help with the other issue you reported, too.April 4, 2016 at 09:02 #10798
looking forward to testing it.

I’m experiencing the same issue (nomachine 5.1.9, OS X 10.11.4 from Windows 7) and would be happy to help with any testing.

Check your inbox, both of you. We have an RC ready.April 15, 2016 at 08:20 #10903
I finally installed the RC version 5.1.16 and followed the instructions on the email you sent me. However, sadly none of the issues have been fixed.
1. CTRL + drag is still not working.
2. in the storyboard designer, it is still impossible to drag and move a view controller once it was dropped into the scene.
3. quick documentation , also known as the ? mark, is invoked when you hold down option and hover over a type or a member. That only works when xcode loses focus. then once it regain focus the + sign never turns into the ? when you hold the Option key (or ALT on windows).
In the instructions you said to install the RC version on the affected server. (the mac) but what about the PC. Do I also need to update my PC (the client ).
Since these issues are show stoppers for me, I decided to buy a cheap KVM switch for now, which seems to work. However, I am still happy to help with testing.

in node.cfg try to add extra options to DisplayServerExtraOptions (not DisplayAgentExtraOptions):
DisplayServerExtraOptions “-oldeventapi 0”April 18, 2016 at 08:59 #10914
oh ok, in the email you guys said Agent.
ok cool, I’ll give it a try and let you know.

I have the same problem using a Mac mini from Windows 10. Can you please also send me the link to the RC?
Do I need to install a RC on both the OSX side and the Windows side? Do I need to make the changes to the config on the Windows side, the OSX side or both?
Thanks and with kind regards,

still no luck!
I added the line DisplayServerExtraOptions “-oldeventapi 0” to the node.cfg file, right under the commented line
#DisplayServerExtraOptions “-nocomposite -noshpix”
and restarted the nx service.
this time the service won’t even start up (the NoMachine icon at the top bar did not show up).
when I try to connect i get “no sessions available”
can you guys provide screen shots of what exactly we need to change.
thanks,April 19, 2016 at 11:51 #10952
please create an archive of log folder:
sudo tar zcf logs.tar.gz “/Library/Application Support/NoMachine/var/log/”
and send it to: forum (at) nomachine (dot) com
along with file
/Applications/NoMachine.app/Contents/Frameworks/etc/node.cfgApril 20, 2016 at 10:34 #10961
Check the attached image showing how node.cfg should look after changes.
Please pay attention to typos: a badly formatted option can prevent node service from starting.

ok thank you.
i’ll give it another try tonight and pay attentions to typos and formatting.April 21, 2016 at 09:33 #10967
we are making some progress but still no lock.
this time I was able to connect to the mac but I got a message “the server was unable to make the local display available or access to the local display is disabled”
if I comment out the DisplayServerExtraOptions “-oldeventapi 0” and restart the nx service, then it connects without any issues but then ctrl+drag is still not working.
I am wondering if the other guys on this thread made any progress.
