Hello all, I've seen this raised before but can't find an answer in my case.
I've used OpenNX client for a while to a FreeNX server. It broke after upgrades.

(1) The current setup:
Client:
OSX 10.8.5
XQuartz 2.7.5 (xorg-server 1.14.4)
DISPLAY variable:
/tmp/launch-DRM3qS/org.macosforge.xquartz:0

Server:
Linux ... GNU/Linux
freenx-server-0.7.3-18.el6.x86_64
nx-3.3.0-38.el6.x86_64

(2) OPenNX-ing
Macintosh to Linux: : I get the "!M" followed by a black screen.
I attached the SSH and runlogs - the SSH log reports a few "Failed to set" lines.

The computer support at the other end hasn't managed to fix this, though to be fair it is a long way. Last time I went around, he said something about the FreeNX version being out of date, and him not being able to update it due to the RedHat licence.

I have spent many hours trying OpenNX uninstalling (sudo rm -rf ~/.nx ; sudo rm -rf /Applications/OpenNX ; sudo rm -rf /Library/OpenNX) and reinstalling versions from 2010 to 2013 in the vague hope this might work - to no avail.

I suspect this is something simple and stupid. But I have no idea, so all help most welcome.

All the best, James
