Hi All I am trying to get x2go working on a virtual (headless) OpenSuse 13.2 KDE server. I have used NoMachine in the past on a hardware Workstation with no issues. It starts the session and reconnects fine when the line drops. On the new server though the graphics are slow and on reconnect the colours on some applications are incorrect, (Eclipse - white on white isn't readable).
I've pulled the latest x2go client for the Windows laptop and installed x2go via Yast. Now to side track a little. I mostly use this virtual desktop from my laptop which can have 3 possible monitor situations. 1)On own - smallish widescreen 2)With internal screen and single external monitor at 1280x1024 (external is Display 2) 3)With 2 external monitors - Display 1 is the 1280x1024 I want to use Sometimes I will pull laptop from docking station effectively switching to 1) above. Then put back and need the display to be handled appropriately. NoMachine player does very well. It seems to remember where I put the display and sends to the correct monitor, even on resume. Issues Using x2go client the fonts are too big. Nomachine and PyHoca-GUI get it right. Xlsfont on NoMachine and PyHoca show thousands of entries, x2go client has around 700. I installed the fonts with the application. X2go client crashes on resume. I create session OK, full screen on the 1280x1200 monitor. On resume it tries to open a smallish window and then the xserver crashes. The PyHoca does work as intended if I use "Maximise" but then the "window" takes over the monitor and I can't easily switch to other apps on that screen and back again. CTRL-ALT-M will let me access other apps but then it's hard to switch back. PyHoca full screen tries to use both screens on laptop - not what I want. Sometimes I can't resume. I get errors about nxproxy or no permission to display in error log. Then I usually have to go to server and manually remove old session files and try to get a new session. This hasn't been an issue so far but could be if I got disconnected while editing. I really hope to get x2go to work as it seems far quicker than NoMachine in this circumstance. But I do need it to be stable and reliable. Nomachine server 3 (last one with virtual desktops) has worked great. I can resume sessions in different resolutions and on different client machines and all my programmes are there, including remote apps throwing screens back to the "workstation".
