View Full Version : NOMACHINE with Gnome applet problems (also with FREENX)

5th October 2007, 05:51 PM
Often when I log into a nomachine nx server I get applet errors like:


all with an option to delete the applet from the tray

the weird part is that I might log out and log right back in not get the same errors. I have tried creating a designated users for remote purposes thinking it was a shared memory type problem but that did not work. I have also tried using the FREENX server and I have similar results.

I've had that issue too. I think it was because I had a freenx session open that I did not properly logout of. Try running the Nx Session Administrator program and checking if there is a session still active. If so, delete it and then try logging in.

Tried your idea with no success. The problem is random and the times that I don't get the above errors sometimes the applet area is just blank but then sometimes everything is just fine. So close to having a decent RDP for linux and yet miles away.

To that list of problems add an unresponsive gnome-panel (ie not possible to select a menu pulldown). Desktop items work ok (ie I've added a Terminal shortcut).

I have the same problem and posted a post before double checking if any one else had the same problem. I also have a machine running Ubuntu with Gnome and the NoMachine remote access work perfect.

I have the same problem with CentOS 5. The current work around is to install KDE. If I'm logged in locally to Gnome, then in NX Client I use KDE.

Kind of weak work around but at least I don't get the pop ups and destroy my pannel locally....

Clean /tmp folder before creating a new NX session and the panel errors will go away

I tried cleaning the .nx/temp folder on the client and still the same error.
As an aside I did also update both server and client to NX version: 3.20-9

Using KDE is a work around but not a really acceptable one. Any other ideas why this is happening on Fedora? I have no problem with an Ubuntu NoMachine NXserver.

You must delete the /tmp folder on the server side (it's normal that you cannot delete all files in this folder because they are used by running applications...).

BUT I have seen that I don't have this problem if there is no opened session (on server side) when I'm trying to connect with NX. That means that I do a "log off" before to work with NX.

I'm having the same problem, also with FC9. I'm getting the same errors and in the end I'm left with no applets on the screen - I have to add them manually.

Did anybody find a solution to this problem ?
