I have been using http://www.nomachine.com/ to 'shadow' my existing work fluxbox desktop remotely, from my home gentoo, with great success.

Now I want to access my machine from a windows laptop - which only has 1 screen and the shadowed (dual monitor) setup is all scrunched up and unreadable.
Also, I would rather establish a whole new session to my gentoo machine, using NoMachines NX.

This works just fine if I use KDE but I want to use Fluxbox.

I have Fluxbox show the menu bar, starts any apps, including slit apps (like gkrellm) but there is no root desktop.

Without that, when I right click to access the fluxbox menus, I end up getting the Windows right click menus.

I have tried all sorts of combinations to make it so I see my fluxbox desktop and have failed.

Can anyone offer any sage advice on how I may get Fluxbox to operate, as expected?

Thanks, in advance.

NX supports "seamless" mode which some desktop environments don't work well with. Ensure that it is disabled.

Using a windows XP client, connecting to Unix 'custom' remote, I can't seem to find a 'seamless' option in the Client GUI (version 3.4.0-7).

Check http://www.nomachine.com/documents/configuration/html/client-guide.html for how to configure seamless mode.

Hmmm.
Been experimenting connecting to the same machine I am on, I seem to be closer - I use the custom WM script /etc/X11/Sessions/fluxbox.
May be promising. Just that the right mouse click does not work on the 'session'.
May be because I am connecting to the same computer...
Still, KDE session works just fine.
More fiddling required...
