    Is it possible to preload the NoMachine virtual session on a headless linux server?

    For example by command line?


    ./nxserver –startsession type=”physical-desktop” –display=:1001.0

    But this command gives no feedback.
    Autostarting the headless session on boot would allow to start graphical programs automatically.
    Currently I’m using Xvfb for this future, but NoMachine’s headless session is more comfortable (screen resize…)


    The free version of NoMachine has a preloadable virtual session to use in headless environments. This can be controlled by three keys in server.cfg:

    Setting CreateDisplay to 1, and then adjusting DisplayOwner and DisplayGeometry to your need.

    The startsession command will start Xsession specified in command parameters, or defined by DefaultDesktopCommand config key by default, but only on an already existing Xserver.


    Works perfect! Thanks
