Comment Re:Still requires creation of user "nx"? Noooooo! (Score 2, Informative) 257

Actually the "nx" user isn't required, neatx supports operating without. However, NoMachine's nxclient doesn't support this, as it assumes that it should always log in as the "nx" user. So, if you're using !M's nxclient, you need to do a small bit of modification client-side. Here's an example of what to do client-side (though the beginning of the post is specific to FreeNX):

Good question -) However, have a look at the different language breakdowns between the codebases.

5.4k lines of bash
233 lines of C
102 lines of expect

5.7k lines of python
400 lines of C
54 lines of bash

The bash in neatx is there to provide wrapping of the python code, so that any unhandled errors etc are logged. It's a belt-and-britches approach.
