I am relatively inexperienced with Linux and am trying to setup FreeNX on a new Ubuntu 10.10 box and installed  the nomachine client 3.4.0-10 on my windows 7 machine. I have followed the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX.

However when it comes to generating custom keys; when I run the command:-

sudo dpkg-reconfigure freenx-server

Open in new window


I get the configuration window but the OK option is not cliickable and it just hangs. Can anyone advise what I need to do?

You need to use the keyboard?? use the tab key to move the 'cursor'/'focus' to the OK button and hit space or enter to press it. I'm guessing a bit here as I can't really see your problem (with my eyes that is)

Aha thanks, stupid me. That worked a treat BUT ..

when I come to run:-

sudo cp /var/lib/nxserver/home/custom_keys/client.id_dsa.key ~/

Open in new window


I get the message "No such file or directory". If I try nautilus I can't get past /var/lib/nxserver as it says I'm not authorised to access the folder.

It's complaining that /var/lib/nxserver/home/custom_keys/client.id_dsa.key does not exist
You are probably running Nautilus as the non-root user, something is missing in either what you have done or in the instructions you are trying to follow.

p.s. It's ages since I installed freeNX so I'm a bit grey on the specifics of that.

Yes got there ran sudo nautilus, the path in the instructions was wrong it should read:-

/var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/client.id_dsa.key

Job done and have edited the wiki too. Thanks for the help.
