I have nx nomachine installed on 64bit opensuse 11.2. All was fine until I ran updates this week and now it seems that it has a mind of its own. (dont remember which packages were updates)Every time I open the cli it just starts typing the equal symbol on its own. In fact every time I open anything that can accept text input it just starts adding equal symbols. It enters them about 2 every second.Code:jason@FileServer:~> =========================I uninstalled all the NX packages, killed the .nx folder in my user folder and then reinstalled the packages and still the same thing.
Half the time I click on a text box to write and star typing only to find out I'm typing somewhere other than where I clicked.It's not dwell click and the active text box seems to be related to mouseover.
The problem is that I have three PCs two with opensuse 11.4 and one with windows xp both linux machines have installed nxserver for remote control and the xp machine has nxclient, I can connect to both linux machines with the windows client, but when I try with the linux client to the other it outputs the following error:
[code]...I changed the ssh port to 2222. this is the nx software from nomachine the client version is 3.5.0-6
I have done a basic installation for a server.And then I have removed the screen and the keyboard because I have no place for them.I manage the server from my laptop using NX.I am using the root user account as nx user because I can't stop the server with a normal user.
This thread (nxserver now broken?) has inspired me to install FreeNX and the client from nomachine on openSUSE-11.2 (this is the version used on both, server and client machine). The good news is: basically it works. I can connect and get the desktop. However, I have some trouble with the keyboard. Up and Down arrow keys do not work. The up arrow triggers a screen snapshot. The down arrow key does nothing. I tried to connect using qtnx as well. This does not work. Result is:
I have openSUSE 11.3 on my Lenovo Thinkpad X61. It has been running fine for many months, but yesterdaychanged. For example, between the two previous words I had actually typed "something" ("yesterday something changed") but it was lost. I type at normal speed but the machine cannot keep up. Hopelessly annoying. This happens in every application I have checked. The only unusual thing I did yesterday was to load a bunch of photos off a relative's digital camera. I'm concerned I may have picked up spyware.
I have a static ip on my wired (eth0) connection. I thought I had it well set up in yast. In the routing section I do have my default gw coming up there, with the the right nw i/f (eth0) associate with it. However, when I boot up, y config seems to ignore that fact, and I have to keep goign to root and typing "route add default gw <mygwip>" each time, which is something I want to avoid. Isn't it odd that the route settings created by yast have no effect? If they did, the route would be set up on bootup and I would haven't to do that typing.
After connecting to any host, the openssh client hangs after I type the password. The strange part is, it only hangs if when I use the wlan card. If I connect my phone to the computer and uses it to connect to my server, it works 100%.
If I use any other computer at the wireless network, it works 100% If I use putty on the same machine, it works 100%
It is only a problem when I use the build-in wireless card, under openSuSE 11.3, on my Lenovo L512. (note that everything besides ssh works completely).
I have been spending hours and hours trying to find a "Remote installation for Dummies" ....kind of step-by-step approach. But after several evenings googling and reading. This is how far I got: I have installed FeeNX on my server and after sudo nxserver -- status I get a reply like this:
NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 2.1.0-72 OS (GPL. using backend: 3.4.0) NX> 110 NX Server is running NX> 999 Bye
so to me that looks like the server process is running. I also installed the windows Nomachine on my laptop and hooked it all up in my local network (so no routers whatsoever) I disabled the firewalls on both my laptop and my server. just in case configured the client for port 22 and the fixed IP address of my server. even imported the users.id_dsa.pub key in the client. long story short: I only get that annoying little error window from Nomachine saying: "Cannot initialize the display service"
I have trouble when typing in Open Office Writer, Kmail, and zim, among other applications. It's not due to unintentional use of the 'insert' key, either.When I type in these applications, the word I am typing often disappears entirely if I don't add a space, return, or punctuation at the end of the word, or use the arrow keys. For example, when setting up a profile in Kmail, I typed my email address into the settings dialog box, and it kept removing the last part of the address: "email@example.com" would always become "myname@univ." unless I added a space after the edu.
When I first encountered this behavior, in Writer, I thought it was a bug with the AutoComplete feature. But now that I've seen it in other applications, I think it is something more general. how to stop the unexpectedly deletion of words while typing?
Sometimes I get this weird thing where typing a name into the kickoff menu hangs after a few letters. It hangs the entire computer! Once it happens, I try to close it but have to wait about 20 seconds before I can do anything on the computer. Then everything else works fine (after it's closed). But if I go back to kickoff and try again, it does the same thing! I can't seem to find anything in "top" to indicate what's happening.

I'm curious as to whether anyone else has experienced this, and has an explanation. I'm running Kile 2.0.85 under openSUSE 11.3 32-bit on a Lenovo X61. Twice in the past couple of days I've had the bizarre experience that, upon a sudden burst of typing my text has appeared in Kile in reverse order.

A day later it happened again: )1.3.5( noitceS fo hpargarap dnoces eht ni ,niaga ecnO.I've been using Kile for almost a year now, on two different machines and under several versions of openSUSE. Nothing remotely like this has happened before. I don't think I have a virus. I can't think of any event that may have heralded this mystical behaviour. Cheers, jdw
I'm logging into a remote Ubuntu box from my Mac via NX, and almost everything works great. However, I can't find any way to capture the alt-tab keyboard combination (or, command-tab) for app switching. All the individual keys register with ubuntu, but when pressed together, Mac OS captures it first. Is there any way to fix this?
Over the past few months Nomachine's NX Server has deteriorated to the point where it's unusable, as detailed in this thread for one machine. On my other machine it works, but I cannot do apt-get dist-upgrades as it spews forth messages like, "insserv: Starting nxsensor depends on stop-bootlogd and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!". So I give up on them.
Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.

I use Fedora 12 and newest free NoMachine NXServer. I have installed all three packages (nxclient, nxnode and nxserver). I'm running sshd on port 22. When I try to connect to my machine, everything works fine, then I see big red M and then is all black.
NX works great when only one connection is attempted at a time. Each server responds appropriately. However when attempting to use NoMachine from an XP client for multiple nx remote connections all subsequent connections receive the following error:Session failed - NX Server Error is 112 'Address already in use'.Research indicates numerous discussions (see below) with no solution for the current freenx versionEnvironment:VM Platform default Fedora 13 with KVMVM machines all default Fedora 14 with "yum install freenx"Full Text of Error Message:
Info: Display running with pid '2336' and handler '0x17040e'. NXPROXY - Version 3.4.0 Copyright (C) 2001, 2010 NoMachine.
Note : Doing this way ( recommanded by apache documentation ) I don't know if it is the good way as recommended by NOMACHINE documentation : <<It can be updated by adding the following directive before the "Global Environment" section >>
So I don't know exactly if this is where to put this. Because I think this might be NoMachine's problem, but I'm not sure. I am trying to set up FreeNX, and I got it working to connect from my work laptop (windows 7) to my home computer (ubuntu 10.04).
I have it going on a different SSH port, and it claims I'm using custom Keys. But, NoMachine still requires me to put in a password to connect. But I can't do that because I have my ssh setup to key-authentication ONLY.So I can't connect to my home machine UNLESS I turn on password-authentication also. But I don't want password authentication on. So, how can I connect without using passwords? Do I need to use a different client other than NoMachine NX-client? Or is this a setup I have wrong in my ubuntu stuff.
I figure it must be NoMachine, because I can't even attempt to login if I don't first put in a password.
I have an Ubuntu jaunty fileserver. I connect to the machine from time to time using the Nomachine client on windows.Everything is setup and working perfectly, except for one thing. When I acces the server remotely, I cannot access any external USB drives connected to it. The drive mounts fine, and is available when logged on locally to the machine, just not when logged in via Nomachine.
I have a remote Lucid machine running Neatx to which I can successfully connect using the NoMachine nxclient under Windows. Using the same connection credentials under Karmic and nxclient doesn't work.
I attach screen shots of the session logs under both Windows and Karmic. They appear identical except for the 'Using shared memory parameters' field. Is this important? No authentication errors appear, so I don't think that's the problem. The Karmic session displays 'Established the display connection' and then fails after exactly one minute.
I have installed NoMachine NxClient deb, on Ubuntu 11.04, Nx installed and I connected to my uni server fine. The Nx program was originally in the applications drop down menu in "others". After a restart Nx was no longer in the menu, I dl'd again and found in Ubuntu software center that there was an option to reinstall NXClient, so I reinstalled and the icons appeared in applications/internet. After a restart they(the NX icons) disappeared again.No other programs have disappeared from the app menu like that.edit: after finding edit menu, I noticed nx client (show) was not "ticked" in internet selection. after a reboot the icon is now available in the app/internet menu.Previous to this I found what I thought was the application in shell $/usr/NX/bin/nxclientbut it would not run from shell command.I added to the panel, created an application launcher for /usr/NX/bin/nxclient and it works there, too.
I want to use nomachine, instead of freenx, and well it isn't working. SSH server works and all, because freenx works., same for neatx. But I hear with nomachine you can see the main display of the computer? Is this true? Well one way to find out, but whenever I try to login I get: Authentication failed for user x. I don't know why, neatx and freenx worked, even x2go, but not this.
I've installed the latest no machine rpms from nomachine. Status shows that nx server is running:
However, connecting from a windows client, I get the following:
So I get past authentication, but it then times out during session download. And here's the output from /var/log/messages on the server:
The only strange thing I've noticed (other than the error messages) is that the log messages for NXServer/NXnode have a date of Jan 5, yet the correct system time should be Jan 4 as seen in the first message.
Note this is happening on both my RHEL 4 and RHEL 5 machines.
When I connect to my Ubuntu box from any Mac OSX 10.6 client (Snow Leopard) using Nomachine, the 'd' key minimizes all windows on my Ubuntu box. I found another post here that says the issue can be fixed by changing some settings on the Ubuntu box when connected. However, I cannot find the location of the settings indicated in that post [URL].
Does anyone know how to resolve this 'd' key problem?
I'm using Nomachine NX client for Windows to remotely connect to my Ubuntu.Every now and then I experience a strange phenomena: the text in the prompt of all open terminal windows becomes black, so it can't be viewed over the black background. Typed commands are also black, but the results are in normal colors. So I can run stuff, but can't see what I'm typing...After I close all open terminal windows and start a new terminal window, everything goes back to normal.
