People who want to install X2Go from source resp. package X2Go for other distributions may be interested in our tarball releases. Please visit this URL to obtain tarballs (
or obtain code directly from out Git repository:
To install an X2Go project from a provided tarball release, please use the following commands:
$ tar -vzcf <x2go-tarball_version.tar.gz> . $ cd <x2go-tarball_version> $ make && sudo make install
By default the $PREFIX for installation is /usr/local, so basically your (e.g.) X2Go Client application will be found in /usr/local/bin if the above command series finishes successfully.
NOTE: many code projects have an INSTALL file in their base project folder that contains extra instructions for the installation process.
$ cd </path/to>/<x2go-tarball_version> $ sudo make uninstall
AGAIN NOTE: many code projects have an UNINSTALL file in their base project folder that contains extra instructions for the uninstallation process.
