  • in reply to: Input issues between Win10 Client and Linux Mint server #42211

    I’m afraid I haven’t. But it’s still occurring from time to time. It’s definitely some process “stealing” the “ctrl+” input and not releasing it.

    Workaround is to close the NoMachine window (not session, for a clue) and reconnect. Since I have a workaround I can live with the bug. However YMMV.

    in reply to: Can’t connect until local user logged in #24451

    # /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --userlist

    All was making sense until I tried this, and got :

    -bash: /usr/NX/bin/nxserver: No such file or directory

    So I’m going to have to cram up on “How Macs work” and get back to you.

    in reply to: Force login to physical desktop each connection? #22399

    Many thanks for replying – and it seems you have nailed it 🙂

    1) For some reason my server.cfg had CreateDisplay
    set to “1”. I changed this. Then issuing the nxserver –restart command threw up an error:

    NX> 162 Disabled service: nxserver.
    NX> 162 Service: nxnode already disabled.
    NX> 162 Disabled service: nxd.
    NX> 111 New connections to NoMachine server are enabled.
    NX> 161 Enabled service: nxserver.
    NX> 162 WARNING: Cannot find X servers running on this machine.
    NX> 162 WARNING: A new virtual display will be created on demand.
    NX> 161 Enabled service: nxd.

    AHA ! – So there really was no XServer running. For my particular machine, running:


    sudo service lightdm restart


    seemed to do the trick. The nxserver –restart then seemed happy. And connecting to the machine, I got the login window I used to get.


    Case closed !

    One thing that has also started happening which never used to, is I am getting a message:

    “Cannot detect any display running. Do you want NoMachine to create a new display and proceed to connect to the desktop?”


    Something has definitely changed and it happened Friday 17th May between 15:00 and 17:00 (when I rebooted).

    How can I tell ??
