Cinnamon 2D and remote session with X2GO

Post by boekhold »

Hi all,

Is it possible to run a Cinnamon 2D session using a remote connection with x2go? I'm trying to start such a session by having the x2go client run "/usr/bin/gnome-session --session cinnamon2d", but it's failing.

If I try to debug this by putting the following in a shellscript on the server side:

Code: Select all

<file c2d>
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/gnome-session --session c2d.log > $HOME/c2d.log 2>&1
I get the following error messages:

Code: Select all

I'm not sure if those GDBus errors are important, but it seems Clutter can't initialize without hardware accelleration?

I would say the same problem remains with the current Mint 17.1. and X2GO 4.0.3.2. It's important because there's general problem with RDP to Cinnamon.
Furter info:
X2GO's Desktop Environment Compatibility shows it doesn't support Cinnamon either: http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:de-compat
