Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)


since i've updated my workstation and the remote worstation to fedora 31 with the newest xpra version (both - xpra v4.0.1-r26379) im getting a "running on linux unknown unknown unknown" in the xpra startup log.

Im also not able to start any child processes. For instance:
Im starting a tool, which starts evince, libreoffice... by pressing a button. That worked with the last version, but not with this one. Maybe the "unknown unknwn unknown" problem is connected with this?

Ask if you need any further information.

Thanks in advance

That's odd, I'm not seeing this here on F31 or F32 with the official packages.
How did you install xpra?

Im starting a tool, which starts evince, libreoffice... by pressing a button

What tool can I use to reproduce the problem.
Is the tool started with --start=?
Does it work if you do the same thing from an xterm running through xpra? (it does for me)

Perhaps you're not using --start and therefore not using the correct environment.
In that case, the application may start but somewhere else.. like maybe on a wayland display.
