I guess my setup is pretty unique from what I have read I believe the main use case for LG is running the client on the same PC that hosts the VM or from VM to VM on the same PC.
My virtual machine host is not the same PC I want to run the LG client from. I have a server on the LAN running my virtual machines. I have a graphics card on the server that I have successfully passed through to the Windows 10 VM which is running the LG Host.
I thought that I could use sshfs to map the /dev/shm/looking-glass to my main PC (Ubuntu 19.10) where I want to run the client from, however, that doesn’t appear to work. The client runs, opens a window with a purple background and the LG logo but never shows the VM desktop.
Is it possible to make it work this way?
Output from LG client:
