Post How to add a second user to FreeNX?

I have a question about the "How To Set Up A Terminal Server In Linux Using Ubuntu 9.10 And FreeNX" post found here: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-set....10-and-freenx

I have followed the guide and it works great - however I have added a second user to my Ubuntu Desktop application and the nxclient fails to connect for this user, I get to the point where I see the big red letters come up in a window and then get the following details as to why the connection fails:

Info: Display running with pid '4956' and handler '0x40a24'.

NXPROXY - Version 3.4.0

Copyright (C) 2001, 2007 NoMachine.
See http://www.nomachine.com/ for more information.

Info: Proxy running in client mode with pid '2748'.
Session: Starting session at 'Wed Feb 10 23:34:52 2010'.
Warning: Connected to remote version 3.2.0 with local version 3.4.0.

Info: Not using NX delta compression.

Info: Not using a persistent cache.
Info: Forwarding X11 connections to display ':0'.
Info: Forwarding multimedia connections to port '6000'.
Info: Listening to font server connections on port '11000'.
Session: Session started at 'Wed Feb 10 23:34:52 2010'.
Info: Established X server connection.
Info: Using shared memory parameters 0/0K.
Session: Terminating session at 'Wed Feb 10 23:34:54 2010'.
Session: Session terminated at 'Wed Feb 10 23:34:54 2010'.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Many thanks!

It looks like you're trying to connect to a KDE session -- is that what you intended, because in my howto it only gave instructions for Gnome sessions. Not that it can't be done, but I figured I'd check. If you:

aptitude install kubuntu-desktop
It will install the KDE desktop and you can pick which you'd like to use from the NX Client menu.

To answer your question, how I added users was in the System -> Administration -> Users and Groups. Command line should work as well, but I've not tried it.
