I'm using NoMachine NX Free Edition (not FreeNX)

After upgrading Ubuntu from 10.04 to 10.10, applications in remote sessions do not show a window title.

Has anyone experienced a similar issue or knows what might fix it?

I'm running nxserver 3.4.0-14 (x64)

Update (2010-11-12): this has been fixed in the latest NX Windows Client

Yes, I have the same problem... There is 2 "solutions" I have found on google for the moment : - Downgrade the metacity package to metacity_2.30.1-0ubuntu1... (from packages.ubuntu.com) - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=1590440

Anyway... I found that NX performances are not as good as on lucid... :(

Confirming, upgrading windows nxclient to 3.4.0-10 (from 3.4.0-7 for me; on Windows XP) worked perfectly.
http://www.nomachine.com/download-client-windows.php Tried all or most of the other fixes and none worked for me.


Uninstalling the client and installing latest fixed the issue. In my case, the problem was that connecting through NX resulted in windows with invisible window borders, if I calculated the place where the close icon was, the window closed, minimize or maximized.
