Hi hi,

I tried to start cinnamon with this command: /usr/bin/gnome-session --session cinnamon2d but it fail's! If I set it to: /etc/X11/Xsession it should start the last session which is cinnamon but come's up with a XFCE session...
[12:18pm] 
[12:33pm]sunweaver:mirco, the command launched by X2Go does not accept cmdline parms. Write a shell wrapper on the server and execute that. Note: your wrapper must be in $PATH
[12:33pm]mirco:THX

made a wrapper like this and placed it in /usr/local/bin:

#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/gnome-session --session cinnamon2d

[12:37pm]mirco:sadly I end up with a blank screen, beatified by the default debian Desktop background… Which is also my personal one!

Thank's in advance
Mirco

X2Go Server now is Cinnamon aware. Use ,,CINNAMON'' as command (other  
desktop). This fix will be available in X2Go Server 4.1.0.0 and above.

I just saw this little line (the one above).

This is probably related to this error:

"""
mike@sid:~& export DISPLAY=:50
mike@sid:~$ cinnamon2d
(cinnamon:14262): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter:  
Failed to connected to any renderer:

        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

"""

Greets,
Mike

Subject: Cinnamon 1.4 worksforme
Date: Sat, 9 Aug 2014 12:14:08 -0400
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I tested Cinnamon 1.4 and it appears to work work fine.

Perhaps this bug report needs to be retitled to state that only newer
versions of cinnamon that are affected?

This is just a VM I setup for the specific purpose of testing Cinnamon
compatibility with X2Go.

More details are below. Note that GLX is enabled, and I ran the
"Custom Desktop" command: gnome-session-cinnamon . "cinnamon2d" was
not present in this older version of Cinnamon.

----

I have the GLX extension enabled on my test system
(/etc/x2go/x2goagent.options has the line to disable GLX commented out)
- Linux mint 13 maya (based on Ubuntu 12.04 precise) 64-bit
- All latest level 1, 2 and 3 OS updates installed.
- cinnamon version: 1.4-UP3
- Cusstom Desktop specified in x2goclient: gnome-session-cinnamon
- x2goserver & x2goserver-xsession: 4.0.1.15-0~847~ubuntu12.04.1
- nxagent & x2goagent: 2:3.5.0.27-0~446~ubuntu12.04.1

Subject: Cinnamon 2.2 does not work
Date: Sat, 9 Aug 2014 13:49:10 -0400
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I just tested Cinnamon 2.2.13 and it does not work properly with X2Go.

Basically, Cinnamon resorts fo "fallback mode", which is not the same
as Cinnamon2d.

More details are below. Note that GLX is enabled, and I ran the
"Custom Desktop" command: cinnamon-session-cinnamon2d

----

When I connect, only gnome-panel is running. (Basically,
gnome-flashback is running, although package gnome-session-flashback
is not installed) It is very different from cinnamon2d, which works
locally, and there are many bugs in this version of
gnome-panel/gnome-flashback. For example, you cannot even set a
desktop background using the GUIs.

I also see a dialog with the text:
Do you want to restart Cinnamon?
Cinnamon just crashed. You are currently running in Fallback Mode.

If I click yes, the dialog comes back up. If I click No, I the dialog
closes, and the session is usable, but it's very buggy for
aforementioned reasons.

This is just a VM I setup for the specific purpose of testing Cinnamon
compatibility with X2Go.

I have the GLX extension enabled on my test system
(/etc/x2go/x2goagent.options has the line to disable GLX commented out)
- Linux mint 17 qiana (based on Ubuntu 12.04 trusty) 64-bit
- All latest level 1, 2 and 3 OS updates installed.
- cinnamon version 2.2.13
- Custom Desktop specified in x2goclient: cinnamon-session-cinnamon2d
- x2goserver & x2goserver-xsession: 4.0.1.15-0~847~ubuntu14.04.1
- nxagent & x2goagent: 2:3.5.0.27-0~446~ubuntu14.04.1

I've attached the contents of my .xsession-x2go-errors file.

Note the following session files:
batmin@mint-q /usr/share/cinnamon-session/sessions $ ls
