x2go client for mac osx

Hi,


Is there somebody with x2go client working in MAC OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard?

I have try in two different mac box and I always get the same message info "Can't connect to X-Server. Please check your settings". In settings looks like all ok (path to X11.app in mac osx is ok and verify it got right permissions).

X-Server in both macs are installed and running. I have try to connect to nomachine linux server and X works fine.

Some tips?

Regards,
Ricardo Díaz

We have not done that much with the Mac client.  Here are the limited
internal notes we have:

The X2Go Mac client uses the OSX X11 server.  The X11 server must be
configured to accept remote sessions in its preferences.  One must also
enable a root screen in X11 preferences if one wants truly full screen
view in X2Go.
To use print, local media sharing, and sound, one must also enable
Remote Login in the System Preferences.

Hope this helps - John

Re: x2go client for mac osx

Hi,

i am working with x2go on Mac OS X SnowLeopard and sometimes i just have to start the X11 Application manually
before starting X2go-Client-Session.
Apart from that, everything works quite well... (I am not using printing oder fileshare, so i cant say
anything about that.)

Hope that helps

Hello Ricardo,

Alexs Macbook was stolen during his vacation. At the moment, we don't
have a platform for debugging and building. On some installations the
X11 app needed to be started on your own. The last time I had the chance
to use it, it was working.
There is no pulseaudio support in this client, because pulseaudio isn't
available on macOS.

Hi Ricardo,

It needs to do a litter configuration with X11 on Mac.

On the terminal, input:
defaults write org.x.X11 nolisten_tcp -boolean false

You can check the configuration by:
defaults read org.x.X11

which should be:
{
    ...
    "nolisten_tcp" = 0; 
    ...
}

I am not familiar with Mac, just met this issue before.
Hope it helps you.

Max

Re: x2go client for mac osx

Thanks to all for replies.


When you open X11 terminal on before I't works fine. It's important Max said (other way to set this is in X11 Mac Preferences->Security set Allow networks connections to checked).

I have try shared folders and remote printing and work too.

Regards,
Ricardo

Re: x2go client for mac osx

X2Go client worked fine for me under Mac OS X for a 
while and suddenly it stopped working giving me the 
"Can't connect to X-Server. Please check your
settings" error. I followed the steps outlined above 
and was still receiving the error. I resolved it by 
quitting X11.app and deleting my X11 preferences file
located in /Users/Username/Library/Preferences/org.x.X11.plist
. Once deleted, I started X11.app again, configured it to 
"Allow connections from network clients" and X2Go 
client worked again. I am currently running Mac OS X 
10.6.3 although I am unsure which version I was 
running when I installed X2Go client and had it
working initially. I hope this helps someone.

removing the preferences file does not work for me on 10.6.8.
Also a reboot of X11 after it does not.
Only a reboot helped me untill now, very annoying.
Has anyone any clue where the issue is coming from?
Seems lik a port or display variable change indeed.
Perhaps the X2go client caches something?
