Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

When starting session with: xpra start ssh:... --start-child=xterm xterm (or any child) would have working dir set to /etc/xpra instead of user's homedir.

Using xpra 0.17.2 on current Debian Testing

I cannot reproduce with a clean jessie install and the xpra repository:

$ dpkg --list | grep xpra
ii  xpra                                  0.17.2-1
$ xpra start --start=xterm
$ xpra attach

In xterm:

$ pwd
$ echo $HOME

I get the exact same results if I do the full start in one remote command from another box.

I suspect that you are leaving some details about your setup, or that the package you are using is not one of ours.
I see no reason why the current working directory would be set to /etc/xpra.

Sorry, misinformed a bit, I get /etc as working dir.

Test connection:

xpra start --desktop-scaling=off ssh:user@server:port:101 --start-child=xterm --exit-with-children This way I get /etc as pwd.

If I start session on server with xpra start :101 --start-child=xterm and then connect, pwd is $HOME.

After a few attempts I've started getting correct $HOME pwd with remote starts.
Changed nothing, just observed cmdlines of involved processes to find some clues.
Now I'm consistently get correct working dir, no ideas what was the cause.

Resolution: fixed

Probably an old version laying around. Closing.

Feel free to re-open if you can reproduce it.
