I changed the workflow, instead of connecting from Windows to Linux, I’m connecting from the Linux machine to Windows with RDP and that way I can work with audio from both computers, so I consider this solved for me.
” Out of interest, are you able to physically set the resolution as you want it in KDE? I.e not by connecting with NoMachine?”
Yes (screenshot attached).
“Were you maybe using NoMachine Workstation in the past?”
I surely wasn’t. I’m using the exact same client, no changes on that computer at all, and for the server I installed the same package that I used before formatting from Arch AUR repositories.
That is the strange part: I used the same Operating System, Kernel and GPU drivers before formatting, the only thing that have changed is the desktop environment I use, but in the past the NoMachine client configuration let me choose several different resolutions and now it doesn’t.
Of course, something more must have changed to cause this behaviour, but I can’t pinpoint what…
Thanks for replying.
I already tried that after a lot of reading on the Arch wiki and this forum, but there is always a caveat, if I change the pam.d file I totally lose sound, if I don’t I don’t have permissions for system update app, etc…
I went back to “normal” NoMachine connection, as I can’t change resolution I have to resize window and it looks ugly as hell but everything else works (sound either on physical hardware or through NoMachine, permissions for apps, …).
Changing in node.cfg the DefaultDesktopCommand as indicated on the Arch wiki for headless servers give me a X session on my computer, but it seems pretty random (I have to restart NoMachine several times for it to work) and I have no audio on the server side (but it allows me to stream audio through NoMachine).
So, finding a solution for the initial problem (being able to change NoMachine resolution on a “normal” connection) is still desirable.
I tested to change the PhysicalDisplay value as explained in the ArchLinux wiki to get a separate session, with:
This way NoMachine display settings allows me to change resolution, but no desktop environment is loaded, just mouse pointer and black background. I know it is working because a NoMachine notification for my login appears and if I click in it it opens OK. Any idea why it may not be loading the desktop?
