libxcomp- includes the symlink:

/usr/lib/libXcomp.so.3.5.0 -> /usr/lib/nx/libXcomp.so.3.5.0

However, /usr/lib/nx/libXcomp.so.3.5.0 does not exist, so the symlink is not created at install time. nx clients are unable to connect because the library cannot be found.

Manually creating the following symlink after installation fixes the problem.

/usr/lib/libXcomp.so.3.5.0 -> /usr/lib/nx/libXcomp.so.

The package needs to include the appropriate symlink.
This task depends upon

The missing/broken symlink isn't the culprit of my failed sessions. I first thought it was because I was able to connect right away after fixing the broken symlink, however, sessions continue to fail even after fixing the symlink. The severity can probably be reduced.
