Hi!

Server: Debian Buster
# dpkg -l | grep -E "xpra|winswitch"
ii  python3-xpra                         3.0.9-r26132-2                  amd64        tool to detach/reattach running X programs
ii  winswitch                            0.12.23-2                       all          tool to start and control remote sessions
ii  xpra                                 3.0.9-r26132-2                  amd64        tool to detach/reattach running X programs
ii  xpra-html5                           3.0.9-r26132-2                  amd64        html5 xpra client

Client: Linux Mint 19.3
$ dpkg -l | grep -E "xpra|winswitch"
ii  python3-xpra                               3.0.9-r26132-2                                   amd64        tool to detach/reattach running X programs
ii  winswitch                                  0.12.23-2                                        all          tool to start and control remote sessions
ii  xpra                                       3.0.9-r26132-2                                   amd64        tool to detach/reattach running X programs

Xpra itself works fine, but using winswitch does not:
"You have requested an xpra session but this server does not support it"

When running the server from the CLI I get the following message:

[EE] 2020/29/04 19:07:38.816622 WinSwitchServer.assign_virt_utils() failed to load xpra, make sure it is installed: No module named xpra.dotxpra

There is a very old ticket with the same issue (#219). According to that i tried to link /usr/lib/xpra to a lot of locations without any effort.

If you need more input please let me know!

Regards,
Frank

Sorry, winswitch is not supported on buster, it is unmaintained at this point.
