    I’m currently running a NoMachine 8.11.3 server on an Arch Linux host with KDE Plasma 6. My host machine is set up with two monitors arranged as follows: | monitor_2 | monitor_1 |, with monitor_1 as my primary display positioned on the right. However, when I connect to the server using a NoMachine client (tested on both Linux and Mac) and opt to display both screens, it incorrectly shows them in the order of | monitor_1 | monitor_2 |.

    I tried to set monitor_2 as my primary display on the host machine, which resulted in the NoMachine client displaying the monitors in the correct order: | monitor_2 | monitor_1 |. So seems the issue is that NoMachine always puts the primary display on the left. Is this behavior expected? Is there a way to modify this setting? I was trying to google this issue and also looked into the details of node.cfg and server.cfg in the /use/NX/etc directory on the host machine but haven’t found any solutions yet.

    I would appreciate any suggestions on this matter.



    Hi snflow,

    The logs (server side) would be helpful to understand what goes wrong.

    Can you please send them by email to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com, making sure to reference the topic as the subject of the email?

    Thank you!
