FreeNX problems in Ubuntu, Gnome theme, screensaver, lock screen, show desktop, nxclient and nxserver

This problem started after an update. When I logged in using NX, I noticed that my theme looked very ugly. The show desktop button was some folder icons, the lock screen function wasn’t working, I noticed some errors in my terminal while trying to run X based tools: Xlib: extension “Generic Event Extension” missing on display “:1000.0”. And the gnome-settings-daemon kept crashing frequently.

From AAron44126 over at the ubuntuforums found the problem:

“Fixed. gnome-settings-daemon was crashing, see this bug.

Run gconf-editor.
Navigate to /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/plugins/keyboard.
Uncheck the “Active” box on the right.
Log out and log back in.”

    This works in Gentoo also using the stable freenx in the repositories. THANK YOU!

  5. This fixed x11 problem in Ubuntu Remix 9.04.
    Error was the same message, but different code :”1034″

    Xlib: extension “Generic Event Extension” missing on display “:1034.0”.

    Great work
