#308 closed defect (wontfix)

Can not open sessions on ubuntu 18.04

I freshly installed ubuntu 18.04 in a new computer (with win10 as dual system). For the reason of wifi drivers, I upgraded Linux kernel to linux-generic-hwe-18.04-edge.

First question is:

If directly install winswitch, it said that

"The following packages have unmet dependencies:

winswitch : Depends: xpra (>= 1.0) but it is not going to be installed

Recommends: python-gnome2-desktop but it is not installable
Recommends: python-gst0.10 but it is not installable

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

But I already installed python-gnome2 and python-gnome2-dev.

I installed xpra then winswitch (newest version even beta version). I can open winswitch now.

When I connected a remote server successfully, I try to start applications. But then jumped out a message box who let me input the password of user "xxx" (my username). It just like this:

| Server Authentication |
| |
| Please enter the password for user 'xxx', |
| connecting to tcp server |
| |
| [Input box] |
| |
| Cancel OK |

When I input the correct password of my username (the user name and password of local pc and remote pc is the same), it said:

Connection Failed: disconnected before the session could b...
authentication failed

Then next message:

Session XXXXXX failed
2020-01-25 :0.0(508x285 mm - DPI 96x96) workarea:
1845x1053 at 75x27

2020-01-25 Warning:server connection failure:
2020-01-25 disconnected before the session could be established

The remote server run a ubuntu 16.04, which can be connected normally using a Windows computer and my old 16.04 desktop.

I struggled to solve this but have no idea. It's kind of you, if there is any suggestion.

I'm afraid that winswitch is no longer maintained, please use xpra directly and if you find a feature that is missing there, we can add it.
