As of, nx-libs has experienced segfaults when running PyQT, PySide apps as well as vlc player. I filed a bug report upstream:

With the help of the x2go developers we isolated the problem to their inclusion of Xinerama support. In the Makefile there is a comment about 2 more symbolic that needs to be created post install. It was these missing symlinks that was causing the crashes in certain apps.

This was determined by commenting out the Xinerama section of the x2go nx-libs Makefile which resulted in apps not crashing. I then altered the PKBUILD to create the symlinks (see attached patchfile) and then ran makepkg as usual. The new nx-libs worked and the prior-crashing apps worked as well.

This was tested on the latest package,

This task depends upon
