Hi Stefan,

I'm the developer that coded at first time the notification message about
the connection status. Somebody else modified after the code to introduce
extra information.

Complete agree. Not happy to see the session name there.

I'm agree to show info more user friendly but not agree to add an option to
disable this popu-p. Not sure who was the developer that added the session
id to the pop up. If the developer read this post maybe he could explain to
us why add this info in the pop-up.

I added the pop-up because if you set on the x2goclient option "hide
windows on connect" (as I usually do with my users settings) looks like
nothing happens when you click on connect button. So some users try to do
again and again and connection stuck. It's no an "eye candy".

In addition, it's complete true there are serious bugs to fix instead to
add this feature so you have some options:
- Read in deep the code and send patches to fix them. And of course do it
for free and using the time you must to be with your family, friends or
doing some sports or something else...
- Fork the project and add the features you want
- Pay for commercial support to fix the bugs and your wishes

I don't want to be rude but it's an opensource project and not very happy
when somebody use the words "silly eye candy" talking about the time other
people spent for free.

Regards,
Ricardo Diaz

Control: retitle -1 Make config bubble text configurable in global  
X2Go Client config
Control: severity -1 wishlist

Whereas #364 has just been resolved in Vcs this way:

  o debugging enabled: session name is shown in the notification bubble
  o debugging disabled: session name is omitted from the session  
startup/resumption notification

this bug (#369) asks for making the hiding/showing of the session name  
in the notification bubble configurable in X2Go Client's global  
options if debugging is disabled.

Greets,
Mike
