NX Problems

Note:  Make sure you are using the 3.5 NX Client and all of the fonts, nxclient 4 will not work.  NX 3.5 install files can be found here http://wikis.ece.iastate.edu/it/index.php/NX

NX Session

If you have problems connecting using NX or think you may have a hung NX session.   Try this, log in with putty or other ssh client then run the following commands

# killall nxnode
# killall nxagent
# rm -rf ~/.nx/C*

Then run

# ps -u <username>

and kill any NX process that is still running using

# kill -9 <pid>

NX Fonts

If you see

*ERROR* Failed to find either 24-bit TrueColor or 8-bit PseudoColor Visual.
*WARNING* Failed to find either 24-bit TrueColor or 8-pbit PseudoColor Visual.

Install the NX fonts.   The NX font files can be found here http://wikis.ece.iastate.edu/it/index.php/NX
