I'm running xpra 2.2.4 under Ubuntu 16.04 on both client and server.
When I enter on the client
xpra start ssh/whirligig --start=gnome-terminal
to connect via an ssh tunnel (already set up) to the server on
whirligig, I get the error
Error: displayfd failed
did not provide a display number using displayfd
xpra initialization error:
failed to identify the new server display!
If instead I use
xpra start ssh/whirligig/9 --start=gnome-terminal
I get a session running on display 9, although it seems a bit flaky --
the display background colour keeps changing.
The server system software is newly installed, so maybe some necessary
package is missing. I had no trouble with a previous server setup under
Any suggestions gratefully received.
