#2011 new defect

After XPRA Client timed out, `xpra start` does not show a window

I had started a remote session successfully with:
$ xpra start ssh://sntentos@ip --start=gnome-terminal

and the attached Windows machine died of battery.

Now, even though I attach "successfully", I see no GUI.

For some reason, your window is showing:


Can you try connecting from a Linux client, or even the html5 client, to see if the window is shown there?

Apologies. Indeed I didn't specify the sequence of events correctly.

Now, even though I attach "successfully", I see no GUI.

Now, even though I attach "successfully", I see no GUI - even if I attach from the Ubuntu 16.04.5 server that is at the "ip".

You should be able to get the same effect as the "died of battery" event by unplugging the network cable, abruptly shutting down the virtual machine (assuming this is one) or maybe even by forcibly killing the client process (with kill -9).

None of these attempts make the gnome-terminal window disappear for me.
I will need more precise steps to reproduce.
At the very least, please attach the server log.

Server log is in the zip file, as ":9-server.log"

Ah, indeed, the server log was hidden in there.

Next time you can reproduce it, please post the steps here.
Please try to run something like:

xdotool search -class gnome-terminal windowactivate
xdotool search -class gnome-terminal windowfocus
xdotool search -class gnome-terminal windowraise

Against the xpra display. Does that help restore the window?
