got it fix all you have to do is when login using x2go go to application >system tools>preferences>main menu then from there select system tools and check the box panel then reboot and there you go you have your bottom panel that easy if anyone runs into this problem this works to get the bottom panel back if using x2go

Just trial and error.

I don't really use the desktop version to be honest so the vanilla one that OVH provides would probably do me fine if I needed to use one.

I did not know you can do this install kubuntu if ovh did not offer it can you also install linux mint like this ?

No Probs.

Kubuntu will work if you have installed the ready to go ubuntu x2go distro from OVH.

It's just like installing another ubuntu desktop along with the one you have.

I re-installed one of my servers to try it our so it definitely works.

thanks Jasgriff i don't know much on this but I don't know if this would work am useing Ubuntu not kubuntu

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

Then select KDE on x2go instead of custom will give you a different desktop.

Not sure if its the one you are looking for though.

This might be of help.

ok thanks Jasgriff does anyone know precise instruction on how to get the menus and bars up am using right now (gnome-session --session=gnome-classic) which looks to not give me the menus and bars using x2go

15-10-2013, 23:24
I am might be off the mark but I think that the classic setting is the basic desktop. You would need to connect using something other than classic to get the other menus and bars up.

I am sure that someone will chip in with more precise instruction

@ Jasgriff yes am using custom desktop options to connect (gnome-session --session=gnome-classic) like in this link here should it be something eles not custom desktop ?

09-10-2013, 21:03
are you using the custom desktop options to connect in your x2go settings?

Hi Kacotet it came pre-installed with Ubuntu on the server every thing is woking fine now had to try it a few time for it to work cause it frist was not asking me for a password or user name don't know why but every thing is ok now kind of like x2go more then NoMachine glad i tried it out looks to be better in some ways

03-10-2013, 13:15
You don't need a key file. Did you install x2go on the server yourself or did it come pre-installed?
