xpra: fails to start X server

I'm trying to start an xpra session on a machine on my local network. However, I'm having trouble getting it to start as my normal user:

If I run:

$ xpra start :100 --html=on --start-child=termite --systemd-run=no --start-via-proxy=no --daemon=no

I get:

2018-09-15 22:19:42,632 cannot access python uinput module:
2018-09-15 22:19:42,632  No module named uinput

Fatal server error:

Invalid argument for -logfile - "/run/user/1000/xpra/Xorg.:100.log"
	With elevated privileges -logfile must specify a relative path
	without any ".." elements.

But, if I run with sudo it starts up fine, but the problem being it's running as root. I also tried the --uid option to drop the privlege level to my standard user, but that fails with:

$ sudo xpra start :100 --html=on --start-child=termite --systemd-run=no --start-via-proxy=no --daemon=no --uid=1000

Is there something that I've missed? I made sure that I followed the suggestion in the wiki of:

$ cat /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config 
allowed_users=anybody
