    Re: HOWTO: Can I use FreeNX with Ubuntu?

    To run freenx server in edgy, you can install the dapper packages from the seveas repositories.

    There's an article in the ubuntu wiki that you can read Here about setting it up.

    I recommend using the following repository for installing the packages:

    Code:
    deb http://seveas.imbrandon.com dapper-seveas freenx 
    deb-src http://seveas.imbrandon.com dapper-seveas freenx
    Add that to /etc/apt/sources.list

    and then run the following commands:

    Code:
    wget http://seveas.imbrandon.com/1135D466.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - 
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install freenx

    With the packages in the repository, these are 1.5, not 2.0.
    So if you want to connect from a windows machine, grab the V1.5 nxclient Here.

    Re: HOWTO: Can I use FreeNX with Ubuntu?

    have a question:

    how can i re-enter an existing session, say display 1000 ?

    because i open several programs there, i suspend my session, and when i try to enter that session - a new one, say 1001, is created, and i cannot access my apps from 1000...

    any ideas ?

    thanks.

    tried this, now getting a "Server not installed or NX access disabled"
    Code:
    NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 13801
    NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
    NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
    NX> 200 Connected to address: 68.54.239.81 on port: 3838
    NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
    NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey

    Re: HOWTO: Can I use FreeNX with Ubuntu?

    Please check your ssh setup:

    - Make sure "nx" is one of the AllowUsers in sshd_config.
    - Make sure your sshd allows public key authentication.
    - Make sure your sshd is really running on port 22.
    - Make sure your sshd_config AuthorizedKeysFile in sshd_config is set to authorized_keys2.

    when i run nxsetup i get this, does anyone know how to add a user to sshd?

    Re: HOWTO: Can I use FreeNX with Ubuntu?

    DISREGARD: FIXED

    I was able to fix this by changing
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    in /etc/hosts to
    127.0.0.1 localhost unix


    For some reason today, Im no longer able to login to freenx. I get a black window, and its not able to load a window manager.

    I tried uninstall freenx entirely, and reinstalling from scratch, to no avail. I get this from 3 different client machines, of none of whose settings have changed

    Re: HOWTO: Can I use FreeNX with Ubuntu?

    I have my server end setup and working fine on 7.04. I have the windows client running on my laptop and I can successfully connect to my ubuntu box from the lan.

    I went into the router and forwarded port 22 tcp to the static ip of my server. I have a static IP on the wan side and when I put it in the client, I can not connect tot he server.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Bob

    Re: HOWTO: Can I use FreeNX with Ubuntu?

    If anyone is interested, I have Ubuntu packages for a working version of FreeNX 0.7.1. Everything is quite good with only a config file change you can have unlimited sessions on your machine and RDP proxy using rdesktop. The free version of !M server only allows 2 sessions max. I have found this to be limiting at times. Especially if you are trying to setup a server. Plus it runs with the latest NX 3.0 backend and client. I have working versions compiled for gutsy on x86_64 and i386. If anyone needs other dist packages, please let me know and I'll start a VM to build one.
