Package: X2Go Client

When I connect to an X2Go Server, after entering credentials, it
returns message:

"Connection failed Your home directory path contains non-ASCII characters.
Aborting session startup."

I verified the $HOME path and it does not contain non-ASCII
characters. When I initially installed X2Go server and client a few
weeks ago, I was able to login successfully. Nothing has changed on
this server to account for this new error message.

Best regards,

Suzan Kowalski

Package: X2Go Server
Version: am64

I had the same issue: this morning I suddenly couldn't connect after a
few weeks of usage.

Turned out my root filesystem was 100% full.

Who did this? X2Go, apparently. This file was 254 GiB in size:

First I removed that file, then I found out that there were still
processes with active file descriptors on that (deleted) file. Thus the
filesystem didn't release the space.

These processes can be found by using 
# lsof | grep cmdoutput

To let the filesystem free the space I tried this and it worked:
# ls -l /proc/15644/fd/
# cat /dev/null > /proc/15644/fd/1
where 15644 is the PID of one of these processes and 1 is the fd number
that points to the deleted file.

And when I say "I tried this" then I mean "I googled for some
stackexchange results and applied them", of course.

Maybe this helps someone in a similar situation. Or is it even a bug in
X2Go? Long solved in recent versions that you get on a decent distro?
