I'm having an issue with gSTM failing to generate a window, it opened once, prior to a reboot, and I had moved it to Workspace 3 (not sure if this is relevant)

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 with a pretty much default Unity setup (minor, in-band modifications)

Now, following a reboot (no changes made) when gSTM is run, it will open the tunnels that I originally created, however it never displays a window.

Any ideas? Is there a way to debug the application to see if it even attempts to generate a window (capture xorg connection?)

Go into your home directory and there is a folder called .gSTM rename it to something like .gSTM_OLD and load up the program then it should appear.

I think this is due to having the 'auto start' ticked.

This will lose all your current settings. Though. – DoubleMalt Jan 15 '14 at 8:46

Go into your home directory and there is a folder called .gSTM. The files in there are the configurations of your tunnel servers.

For all servers change




then it works.

And don't tick autostart again ;)
