X2Go and Mate on Fedora 24



  • If anyone else wants to use X2Go with Mate on Fedora 24, you may run into an issue. If you are logged in locally, and then try to log in from X2Go you get this error: "Could not acquire name on session bus" It's a pretty simple fix.

    #!/bin/bash
    
    unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
    
    /usr/bin/mate-session > /dev/null
    

    Just save that script and instead of calling Mate with the X2Go Client, just call that script.



  • Thanks!
