Networking / Re: VNC to Ubuntu LTS
« on: May 14, 2024, 02:06:50 am »
I don't know what desktop Ubuntu LTS uses.

Interestingly, /bin/startx already has unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
Interesting... I had not remembered adding it there myself but could not remember where all I had but having recalled I had put it somewhere else than just the ~/.vnc/startup I had done a grep searching it out and finding it in /bin/startx figured I must have.  Can't say for sure now if I did or did not.

Neil,
For the black screen, you may need to add:
unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
to ~/.vnc/xstartup

I just recalled, I actually placed it in 3 files as it did not work for me in the xstartup (for some it does)
I also had created a ~/.xsession  wherein I added it as the first line and also in in /bin/startx
as I recall, here I needed it for both vnc and rdp (I understand the need for it may depend on the desktop in use... I use mate).

I also installed xrdp and am using freerdp to connect.  I've found it has been more stable.  VNC keeps just closing out, I am not getting any popuplog.os2 entries nor any exceptq files so I don't know if it is the VNC client crashing, a problem with the VNC server or if maybe the network is blipping and rdp is able to keep going while VNC does not.
I've found that RDP keeps reconnecting occasionally, which looks like the network drops out momentarily and RDP reconnects without my really noticing it but VNC is not as tolerant to these drop outs.

I got it working using tigervncserver on Linux Mint.  Installed stunnel rather than changing the binding.

Which VNC server did you go with?  I will need to bring my OpenSuse laptop home and test as I have VNC working on it.  On my Linux Mint here acts like it is only binding to localhost and I haven't yet figured out how to either use ssh to connect first nor how to change the binding.

Which VNC are you using?  The old PMVNC or the newer one?

I have just downloaded it so I haven't had a chance to use it to say anything about it other than to thank you for your work on it.

Odd when I built 4.04 last March, I did not have any issues with printer support.  I just built 4.04 again and it built fine (though it crashes) but 4.05 fails building due to printer support.  4.04 built with QT6 just fine then as well (though I no longer recall which release that was).

It likely is the partition alignment, or maybe less likely the drive geometry:

OK, one thing that should be checked to see if it is just an oddity on my system. Whenever I open the desktop properties and go to the Startup tab the delay always initially shows 1.  If I had previously changed it, I can hit Default and it will then show the number I had changed it to.  I can change tabs and go back and it will show the number I had set it to (IOW, going back to 1 is only on initial open).  If I open the Desktop properties and do not open the startup tab, make some changes on other tabs and close it and then open the Desktop properties and the startup tab, I can click default and have the number I had previously set.  If I open the Desktop properties and open the startup tab and close the properties, when I reopen the properties it will have saved the 1 second delay (IOW now clicking default does not change it to what I had set it to previously because it saved the 1 that was showing when I closed the properties.). 

Steps to reproduce:
Open Desktop properties
Open startup tab
change Delay to a number other than 1
Close Desktop properties
Open Desktop properties
Open startup tab
observe Delay

If, as on my system, Delay is back to 1 Click Default at the bottom and observe the number.
Now close Desktop properties
Open Desktop properties, open any or all tabs other than Startup
Close Desktop properties
Open Desktop properties
Open Startup Tab
Observe Delay
If shows 1, click Default button and observe Delay time (if as on mine, it will be the number set)
Close Desktop properties
Open Desktop properties
Observe delay time
Close Desktop properties
Open Desktop properties
Open Startup tab
Observe Delay
Click Default (if as on mine, it will now be 1).

Large parts of the XStartup code have been rewritten for improved reliability. It should no longer be necessary to impose a long delay to ensure the first object starts properly.
How hard would it be to add the initial delay back? I had imposed I think just a one second (maybe 3, I don't recall now) delay to prevent a 30-45 second hang that is now back (I had timed it back then but haven't now that it is back). 

I didn't get rid of the delay. It was a global rather than per-object setting, so I moved it to the Desktop 'Startup' tab where you create your first Startup folder. It starts out set to 1 second because there's always a 1-sec delay before XWP does _anything_. Values greater than 1 include that initial delay.

If the code is still there but just either commented or ifdef'd out, I should be able to build it (assuming my build environment is still good).

I seldom leave detritus lying around - that's what version-control systems are for. If there's a problem with any change I've made, please advise so that I can fix it for all users (assuming it needs fixing).
OK, tested making the changes on the startup tab.  After moving tcpip startup back to the first program to launch and booted set to 3 seconds, 2 seconds and unhelpfully back at 1 second (unhelpfully in that I now have no idea why it was hanging as it no longer does in the original configuration).

XWP v1.0.16 introduces some of the most significant Desktop usability improvements in years.

XStartup
Large parts of the XStartup code have been rewritten for improved reliability. It should no longer be necessary to impose a long delay to ensure the first object starts properly. XStartup's notebook page has also been updated with XWP-Full's Boot Logo option getting its own page.

Never mind, I was able to work around it by moving TCPIP startup to launch second instead of first.  Previously, I was unsuccessful in affecting the hang by changing the order.
