[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goserver
Version: 4.1.0.4

When starting a x2go session with the server running Opensuse Tumbleweed OS I expect to get a session.

What I get is the error message:|"Unknown operating system, XSession startup not implemented!" I looked 
at the x2goserver source code and it checked for ||[ -f /etc/SUSE-brand ] || [ -f /etc/SuSE-release ] which both are 
absent. I did a 'touch ||/etc/SuSE-release|' on the server and x2go started working again.

So there should be a better detection for Opensuse Tumbleweed.

Client:
Windows 10
X2GoClient 4.1.2.2
Session: xfce or kde, it doesn't matter
Server: OpenSuse Tumbleweed x2goserver-4.1.0.4~git107+gc2182644-3.37.x86_64

I have been playing with SUSE (SLES) recently, as well. But not  
related to X2Go. On your Tumbleweed instance, is there a proper way to  
identify that it is a SUSE system?

Also, please make sure to be subscribed to [1] when posting to the  
X2Go bug tracker. Your BTS mails won't make it to the x2go-dev list  
and thus stay unseen.

Greetings,
Mike

Hi Mike,

I think https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Find_openSUSE_version is the way to 
go to check for SUSE releases.

Henrik

Ok. Will implement something like that. Thanks!

Are you sure that this version of nxagent is used? It it really,
really old! Please try to update to 3.5.99.26
