When I try to connect to x2goserver I get error:

enter image description here

Any idea how to solve it or what are the possible causes?

Both client and remote computers are running Manjaro x64 XFCE and are located in the same LAN network.


It looks like you forgot to create the database.

sudo x2godbadmin --createdb

    ^ This was it for me. Specifically running on the client – mathewguest Mar 17 at 23:10
  • This is it, thank you! (I didn't have to do it when I installed x2goserver on Linux Mint, so I didn't know anything about this command). – Kossak Mar 29 at 9:12

A client had the same issue and apparently it was related to the presence of an user alias at login. When they tried to connect with the alias, which contained uppercase letters, x2go gave that error, while it worked regularly when using the default UNIX username.

  • You mean some linux os user alias? I connect as normal linux user, I even tried two different users - one administrator, and one user without administrator rights and the effect is the same. – Kossak Nov 16 '18 at 9:09
