It is not possible to use X2go with Ubuntu because of Unity.
For this reason I was very happy to hear of Ubuntu Gnome and I gave it a 

I setup a VirtualBox virtual machine with Ubuntu Gnome 15.10 with NAT 
network and a redirection of port localhost:2222 to <vm ip>:22. ssh

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "unity-gtk-module"

Could this be the problem ? Does anyone else manage to run X2Go with 
Ubuntu Gnome ?
