#1711 closed defect (fixed)

deceptive error message:cannot find any live servers to connect to

Reported by: Boruch Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: trivial Milestone: 2.2
Component: core Version: trunk
Keywords: error messages Cc:


version: Xpra gtk2 client version 2.1.3-r17247 64-bit
platform: Linux 4.9.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian

I had a server open on display :2, but issued a command xpra stop :1. The response was:

InitException: cannot find any live servers to connect to
xpra initialization error:
 cannot find any live servers to connect to

The correct minimal response should have been to the effect that no live server was found on the requested display. A pampering, hand-holding, supportive, millennial response might also list the existing live servers.
