Hi and thank you so much for the tutorial. I can see my Ubuntu desktop but the mouse does not seem to work. Is there a command or setting I should have enabled? My home machine is Fedora 33.

Hello @sansari1

I’ve tested this on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 droplet and it seems like that everything is working just fine.

Did you follow the steps on an existing server that you use for hosting web apps/sites or you’ve used a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 droplet? Have you tried rebooting the droplet and the X2Go local client?

Regards,

  • I think I did reboot my machine, but I’ll do it again. I’ll also reboot the droplet.
    Thanks

    • Hello there,

      Sometimes the process may not be completed without additional changes if the droplet has any software already installed as some dependencies might already be there and with different (often older version)

      Let me know how it goes.

      • Well I was doing a bunch of stuff, so I can start with a fresh image, and try to setup remote desktop first. Do you think that is a better idea?

        • Hello there,

          As mentioned sometimes on an older droplet that you’ve been using for some time it’s likely that you’ll have some of the dependency packages already installed and when you try to follow the steps of installing the prerequisites you might see a message that the package is already installed. Having said that you will need to perform either some extra steps in order to complete the setup or to skip a step or two.

          I will recommend to give it a try on a fresh droplet if this is possible. However, if you can also test the connection from another local machine different from the Fedora one you’ve already tested, this will be good as well.
