X2Go Client - connection failed

I would like to acces Baobab through X2Go Client (already done in the past) but when I try to login I have this error message. Do you have any hints?

Many thanks

Hi there,

I do not have an Apple computer at hand right now, in the meantime three questions:

  1. which OS version?
  2. which X2go version?
  3. do you remember when was the last time it worked? This would be helpful to know the server-side X2go version (which usually is updated at each Baobab maintenance, thus every 3 months with the current scheduling)

Thx, bye,

Hi there,

I could test on a macOS 10.15.3 Catalina with XQuartz 2.7.11 and X2go (Qt 4.8.7), no problem to connect to baobab2.hpc.unige.ch .

Thx, bye,

Hi, after several testing and reinstalling X2go, I still have the same problem. The only difference is that my MacOS version is 10.15.5 Catalina with XQuartz 2.7.11 and X2go (Qt 4.8.7)



Check this link : https://community.hpe.com/t5/system-administration/ssh-session-quot-tput-no-value-for-term-and-no-t-specified/m-p/5255041#M52532

I think your problem might be related to the content of your .bash_profile file which contains multiple subshells calling tput.

First of all, I would suggest to connect with SSH instead of X2Go and replace your .bash_profile file with a simple version of the file, such as the following to check if that solves your problem.

# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
	. ~/.bashrc

# User specific environment and startup programs


export PATH

Let us know if that works better



Hi Massimo,

you were right. I was checking similar post and effectively, by removing most of the rows of .bash_profile file X2Go now works. Many thanks

My pleasure ! Have a great day
