Subject: Unable to find the sftp-server binary
Date: Sat, 9 Nov 2019 21:52:18 +1100
Package: x2goclient

From a Linux desktop i launch x2go client and auth into my
remote MATE desktop Ubuntu x2go server. Upon successfully auth to host
i receive the below error

"Unable to find the sftp-server binary. Neither bundled nor found in
$PATH no additional directories.

If you are using a Linux based OS please ask your sys admin to install
the package containing the sftp-server binary."
It then provides the names of the binaries to install, i do have all
of the necessary ssh and ssh server and sftp related binaries

Then it states to contact this email if the problem exists.

My path is as follows

which sftp

i currently have sftp installed
ii  openssh-sftp-server                        1:7.6p1-4ubuntu0.3

Once you acknowledge the error and press Ok it exists the session
