[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: (Ubuntu server) x2goserver_4.0.1.19-0~1064~ubuntu14.04.1
Version: 4.0.1.19-0~1064

The name of shell variable ${STARTUP} defined by x2goserver is too common.
> $ echo $STARTUP
> /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/im-launch /usr/bin/env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/nx/X11/Xinerama:/usr/lib/nx/X11 xfce4-session

It would easily cause conflicts with other things. (Took me a week to debug :()

Could you please consider changing it to some more specific name like
"X2GO_STARTUP"?

Thanks!

The $STARTUP env variable will be set for every Xsession based X11  
session on a Ubuntu or Debian (and alike).

Please do a grep on /etc/X11 and see its output (grep -r STARTUP /etc/X11).

In case you want to use $STARTUP in your own scripts, please know that  
it is not a good idea to use that var name on Debian nor Ubuntu systems.

Using X2GO_STARTUP or any other variable name will not work with  
existing scripts in /etc/X11/Xsessions.d. Thus, closing this issue and  
tagging as "not-a-bug".

Greets,
Mike
