This count is currently not available

You see the "This count is currently not available" message in the Status column of Xbrowser when using the Detail viewing mode.


This problem may occur when the user account assigned to run the Xwilling process does not exist in the system. User accounts are assigned in the xdm-config file.


The Willing message is a message that appears in Xbrowser's Status column. This message is the result of the execution of an Xwilling file. You can show environment message, number of connected users, system load average and etc.

This message has no effect on making the actual XDMCP connections. You can either ignore the message or assign a different user account to run the Xwilling process.

To edit which account to use to run Xwillings in the /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config file, edit the following line:

DisplayManager.willing: su nobody -c /etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling

*Change nobody with the actual user account. 

The default Xwilling message is "willing to manage" but you can customize it to suit your needs. Here is an example:

#! /bin/sh 
# The output of this script is displayed in the chooser window 
# (instead of "Willing to manage"). 

load=`uptime|sed -e 's/^.*load[^0-9]*//'` 
nrusers=`who|cut -c 1-8|sort -u|wc -l|sed 's/^[         ]*//'` 
s=""; [ "$nrusers" != 1 ] && s=s 

echo "${nrusers} user${s}, load: ${load}"
