Description Jeff Sadowski 2021-05-01 20:35:06 UTC
Description of problem:
X2go seems to try and start the Wayland version of the desktop even if the Xorg version exists. Many desktops seem broken because of this. Not sure if this is an x2go server issue or each desktop that is broken because of this issue. There should be a way for you to communicate and work this out.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Package x2goserver-4.1.0.3-10.fc34.x86_64 is already installed.

How reproducible:
gnome will not even start XFCE now seems broken(worked in Fedora 33) KDE sort of works seems not to resize. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install x2goserver
2. Try connecting using one of the broken desktops mentioned above

Actual results:
Gnome will not even start. XFCE stops working after a while. Can't seem to resize or move windows.

Expected results:
Normal remote desktop behavior.

Please report upstream.  For the most part I just package up what they ship.

Comment 2 Jeff Sadowski 2021-05-02 15:22:03 UTC
Is there maybe a way to point gnome and xfce to Xorg versions for x2goserver? Is it maybe a fault of the desktops that are putting wayland startup scripts where xorg startup scripts should be? Maybe its a missing standard that should exist?
