No-machine2FreeNX: Black screen when access with a regular user (not the root)

Hi guys,

I was perfectly running FreeNX on my Ubuntu Server 10.10 (with gnome-core), meaning that I was able to access the server from a no-machine Windows Client using a super user (root) and a regular user.

I changed my eth0 from dhcp to static, and now I'm only able to access the server's Desktop with the root.

The issue is that I'm able to connect with the regular user, but I got the black screen and can not see the server's desktop.


Thanks.
