Re: x manager not working for ubunt

 
Firstly, if you are evaluating Xmanager, try upgrading to the latest version. Download the latest Xmanager at:

/download/down_xmg3.html

In order to access Ubuntu 10, you must enable XDMCP. To enable XDMCP, follow the instruction below:

1. Open /etc/gdm/custom.conf
2. Then make the file appear as:
[security]
DisallowTCP=false

[chooser]

[xdmcp]
Enable=true
DisplaysPerHost=2

[debug]

3. Restart GDM by giving the following command:

sudo restart gdm


This will allow 2 connections per host. Adjust the number according to your needs.

If the problem persists, please send us the Xmanager log file. It is saved under:

%APPDATA%\NetSarang\Xmanager\3\Log\

Re: x manager not working for ubunt

 
If you can't find the custom.conf file, this probably means you do no have Gnome and necessary programs installed.

Please install Gnome and gdm package by giving the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install gdm
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

startx

This should install and start the necessary packages. Now, you should see custom.conf file under the /etc/gdm/ directory. Edit the file as I explained in my earlier posting. Try connecting to it again.

*If you have firewall running on Ubuntu, allow UDP port 177.

Re: x manager not working for ubunt

 
Have you restarted the gdm process? And, allow UDP port 177 on the remote host?

If the problem persists, please attach the Xmanager log file again.

Re: x manager not working for ubunt

 
the right location of this file on ubuntu & debian is:

/usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf

you must be the changes there.

Re: x manager not working for ubunt

 
I think the file is "/etc/gdm/gdm.schemas" in ubuntu 10.10
