I love freenx and I am having great difficulty trying to get it to work on an 11.10 server. When I try to connect, I immediately get disconnected. I have seen in posts that Unity 3D causes issues with nx sessions. I can SSH to the machine.

Is there a way I can keep the standard 11.10 Unity on the console, but force nxserver to use Unity 2D?

I wrote a installer script, which compile and install freenx server on Ubuntu 11.10. Works with Unity 2D.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Léo Lam Feb 5 '15 at 16:13
