Package: x2goclient
Version: 4.0.3.2-preview1
Severity: normal
Owner: ionic@ionic.de

The error message that pops up when remote printing or file sharing is enabled and the (client's) host public key does not exist is currently "SSH daemon failed to open the application's public host key."

This is misleading. Users might assume, that this error is related to public key authentication with the remote server. It also does not include the reason for this being a problem.

This is paid-for work, triaged, assigned to me and will be fixed by myself.
