Description Chris Carlin 2011-07-26 18:30:27 UTC
I'm running a headless box, so I installed nxserver-freenx without installing any real X server. There were a few problems with this setup involving fonts and, most importantly, keymapping.

After days of struggling with the problem I installed xorg-server and the problems cleared right up.

Either xorg-server or some dependency thereof should be listed as a dependency of nxserver-freenx.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install nxserver-freenx on a more or less blank slate of a computer
2. Attempt to connect

Actual Results:  
Quirky behavior including mismapped keyboard

Expected Results:  
Good behavior right off the bat.
