    I’m trying to test the ability to start a floating window in a webplayer session.

    Testing URL:


    This appears in nxhtd-error.log:

    [Wed Jun 26 17:42:44.303806 2019] [cgi:error] [pid 946:tid 140187380209408] [client n.n.n.n:53848] AH01215: free(): double free detected in tcache 2: /usr/NX/bin/nxwebclient

    Changing the URL to remove config=:


    No error is produced, but the web page errors out.

    Service disabled

    Could not connect to the server.

    Error is: Cannot find the connection file specifled in the URL

    # ls -l pwd/floting.nxs

    -rwx—— 1 nxhtd nxhtd 3272 Jun 26 15:47 /usr/NX/share/config/floting.nxs

    The error makes sense since I spelled the name wrong when I installed the nxs file (missing the “a”).  But someone might want to take a look at the double-free error.


    Looks like I need some help with webplayer floating windows.  I have these options in my test .nxs file:

    <option key="Command line" value="/usr/bin/startwm.sh" />
    <option key="Custom Unix Desktop" value="application" />
    <option key="Desktop" value="console" />
    <option key="Enable session auto-resize" value="true" />
    <option key="Resize the remote screen to the local geometry" value="false" />
    <option key="Session resize mode" value="viewport" />
    <option key="Session" value="unix" />
    <option key="Virtual desktop" value="false" />

    The page comes up correctly with all the settings I want, but in a browser tab versus in a detached window.  What did I miss?



    Hi, it guy92075,

    It’s not a bug, just web player doesn’t support the “Virtual desktop” NXS key at all. So as I see your proposition is to open “Custom session” types in a “detached window” like player’s ‘floating window’. It’s a new possible FR and we need to evaluate this. Thanks for sharing ideas.
