On Lion, only NX Player is supported, but if you are connecting to Ubuntu 11.10 that require Unity 2D, previously you can set something like "gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d " in your NX Client's configuration.

But, seems NX Player is lacking of this flexibility to set this.

So, how to connect to Ubuntu 11.10 from Mac Lion?
