-====== X2Go Desktop Sharing -- Download, Installation & Usage ====== 
- 
-===== Download ===== 
- 
-==== GNU/Linux ==== 
- 
-=== GNU/Linux package based distribution === 
- 
-Please make sure that you have added the X2Go repository appropriate for your system to your package management system. The required steps are described here:  
- 
-  * [[wiki:​x2go-repository-debian|Debian GNU/Linux]] 
-  * [[wiki:​x2go-repository-ubuntu|Ubuntu GNU/Linux]] 
- 
-=== GNU/Linux with installation from source tarball === 
- 
-The sources of this X2Go component are available as source tarball under this URL:  
- 
-http://​code.x2go.org/​releases/​source/​x2godesktopsharing 
- 
-===== Installation ===== 
- 
-==== GNU/Linux ==== 
- 
-=== Debian / Ubuntu === 
- 
-The ''​x2godesktopsharing''​ package will install x2godesktopsharing on your GNU/Linux system and will make sure, that every needed package will be installed as a dependency. ''​x2godesktopsharing''​ is an X2Go server-side package. 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-$ aptitude install x2godesktopsharing 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-You can now start x2godesktopsharing within X2Go sessions (that is: on the server) by typing ''​x2godesktopsharing''​ on the command line or you find it inside the "​Internet"​ section of your menu inside your graphical desktop environment. (In case of LXDE on Debian have a look in '​Networking'​ instead.) 
- 
-=== Source Tarball (LinuxFromScratch) === 
- 
-FIXME 
- 
-===== Usage ===== 
- 
-With the desktopsharing function of X2go you can have full-access the desktop from somebody else like with programs as Remote Desktop. TeamViewer or LogMeIn. You can see an X2go session from somebody else, but you can also see a normal desktop. 
- 
-To do this you need access to port 22. So maybe you need to make a portforwarding on your router. Portforwarding is not discussed here on this page. 
- 
-==== The Server Side ==== 
- 
-First you need to install the package x2godesktopsharing on the server (the machine you want to access, this can be a very normal PC): 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-aptitude install x2godeskstopsharing 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Then there is a new application in the menu. I can find it with "​Applications | Internet | X2go desktop sharing"​. You can start the program with this command too: 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-$ x2godesktopsharing 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-After starting the application and some searching, you will find a new icon on your panel. On the top the icon it's blue, and under it is white with a red cross in it. When you right-click on the butten you can activate the desktop sharing there. After activating other people who can login, can access your desktop. 
- 
-==== Client Side ==== 
-To connect to another user's desktop, use [[wiki:​components:​x2goclient|x2goclient]]. For installation instructions refer to the [[download:​start|download page]]. 
- 
-  * Start the client. 
- 
-Preparing the session: 
-  * Create a new session with "​session | new session..."​. ​ 
-  * Assign a session name, and give the host name and the user name from (or **of**?) the user, whose session you want to access.) 
-  * As '​session type' choose '​connection to local desktop'​. 
-  * Recommended:​ choose "full screen"​ on the settings tab. Otherwise, everything can become too small to read. 
-  * Press '​OK'​ to save the session. 
- 
-Making the connection: 
-  * Activate the newly created session. 
-  * Give the password of the user, and start the session. 
-  * You'll be presented a list of running sessions. Choose, which you want to connect to. (In most cases there will be only one session listed.) 
- 
-After this you will login on the desktop of the other user. When your monitor is smaller than the other ones, it might be a bit difficult to read. 
- 
-Be aware, that by selecting '​shutdown'​ within the shared desktop, the remote system will be turned off!
