QtNX hangs during connect

Bug Description

Binary package hint: qtnx

When trying to connect to our FreeNX server, QtNX hangs. The text in the status bar and Logging Output reads "Process started". No further messages are displayed.

run from terminal and report the messages displayed there. QtNX fails to display some important messages in the gui but writes them to STDOUT.

Same problem here. I tried to connect to FreeNx (NXSERVER - Version 2.1.0-72 OS (GPL, using backend: 3.1.0)).

I'm also having the same problem on Ubuntu 9.04

Same thing for me, but when I ran it from the Terminal I realized it was prompting to add the host. After typing "yes" at the command line Qtnx went blank, but then when I restarted it and tried again, it worked.

Now it's doing it again. I run it from a terminal and it says

stderr> tr: write error: No space left on device


You really need to display error messages to the user instead of just hanging at "Authenticating client".

Client just hangs when trying to connect. It says "Process started" and displays no other message. This bug is 2 years old and still no fixes?
