    I’m using NoMachine inside Docker. Doesn’t work sharing – folder, printer, usb. Log file attached.


    Remote: NoMachine – Version 5.3.12 (free version) running on Ubuntu 16.04 inside docker 1.12.6

    Client: 5.3.12 Ubuntu 16.04

    Connecting to the virtual display

    remote machine desktop: i3wm 4.14.1


    Hello stempher

    Thank you for information, we will investigate this issue in our labs.
    There may be some services that don’t work because of Docker limitations.
    For example, USB sharing needs the driver in order to work.

    It would be helpful if you could send us server side logs, which are in:
    /usr/NX/var/log on your server machine.

    Also some useful information are stored in session logs – /usr/NX/var/log/node.
    For example if you don’t have Cups installed, printing will not work and that information would be in those logs. Send to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.



    Cups installed. I set everything according to the instructions

    Ok, i send logs to mail.


    One more question. Is possible start of NoMachine in a container without –cap-add=SYS_PTRACE


    Hello stempher

    In order to fix compilation error of USB module you should follow instruction in this Article:

    If this instruction will not work, can you provide us output of make command?

    Some helpful information is in this article (disk sharing):
    And this (NoMachine in docker):

    And –cap-add=SYS_PTRACE is needed for normal functioning of nxserver.
