Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

This was mentioned in #198 but it seems like it was overlooked.

NXAGENT - Version 3.5.0

Copyright (C) 2001, 2011 NoMachine.
See http://www.nomachine.com/ for more information.

Info: Agent running with pid '8227'.
Session: Starting session at 'Wed Oct  3 00:44:12 2012'.
Error: Aborting session with 'Unable to open display 'nx/nx,options=/home/me/.winswitch/server/sessions/72/nx_options.txt:72''.
Session: Aborting session at 'Wed Oct  3 00:44:12 2012'.
Session: Session aborted at 'Wed Oct  3 00:44:12 2012'.

Why is all that extra stuff being sent to NX for the display, instead of it just being ":72"?

That is just how NX works.

Why NX fails to start is not clear, "Unable to open display" is rather vague - I will try it in a Precise VM (that's precise amd64 up to date at both ends I suppose?)

Hm, ok. Well, I have the packages from nomachine installed, so I had to symlink the executables to /usr/bin, and then symlink the libraries to /usr/lib one-by-one until it stopped giving library errors. I tried using LD_LIBRARY_PATH but that caused errors in Python about being unable to determine the version of some of the libraries.

I have amd64 on two systems, but the one I was using in this case was i386.

I don't know if this is worth your time looking into. What is the recommended way to install NX for using with Winswitch? Maybe that's the problem.

Thanks.

closing, xpra is the way forward and I don't want to start fighting with the various weird packaging that distros / NX do.
