    Best way to start xfce when using NX or X2Go

    Hi everyone,

    I noticed that when using NX or X2GO if I start xfce4 using /usr/bin/startxfce4 it looks different and not as "pretty" then the console.

    How can I start XFCE using something like X2GO or NX and have it look the same as if I booted it up using a monitor.

    thanks!

    In NX, chose "Unix CDE" as Desktop to start XFCE. In x2go, try starting the program /usr/bin/xfce4-session

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have done as you say in NX and I get an error: cannot run 'cdwm' please ensure the requested app is in the system path and that you have credentials to execute it.

    in X2Go (and NX) running /usr/bin/xfce4-session gives me the same plain version of XFCE and not the same one that is on the console.

    thanks.

    Does anyone know a fix for this?

    I'm trying run an NX server on a xubuntu machine and I get the cannot rum cdwm message. It worked fine on Lucid.

    Sorry to bump an old thread but I'm still lost with this one.

    I really need to get nx server working on my Xubuntu 10.10 laptop but I run into the "cannot rum cdwm" problem.

    Come on, come on, come on ... I can't really believe:
    # cd /usr/bin
    # ln -sf xfce4-session cdwm
