X2Go Packages for Debian GNU/Linux

To get started you'll need to configure your local system to access the official X2Go Debian repository. Please keep in mind that this installation manual will guide you through the installation on a Debian wheezy (jessie, sid) system. The repository will basically offer you packages for i386 and amd64 architectures.

Exceptions:

  • Debian lenny: If you really use X2Go under Debian lenny and require us to provide recent X2Go versions for lenny, then you have to contract us to do that. The lenny packages will be removed from our archives at the end of 2013.
  • Debian squeeze: X2Go packages will be offered for Debian squeeze at least until squeeze is still officially supported as oldstable by the Debian project.
  • ARM architecture: for Debian squeeze and wheezy on ARM-based (Debian/armel) devices we provide client-side packages (x2goclient, pyhoca-gui, pyhoca-cli plus dependencies). No nightly-builds, no server packages, though.

Adding this Repository to your Package System

Before starting to edit your system configuration, you'll need to add the needed GPG keys of the repository. Please switch to a user which has administrator privileges on your system in your preferred command line client:

su -

or

sudo -s

The following commands will ensure that your system will be able to work with the repository archive key. We have also provided our archive key and the X2Go maintainers' keys in a keyring package called x2go-keyring (see below). If you choose to install that package you can skip these first steps…

$ apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keys.gnupg.net E1F958385BFE2B6E

Please add the file x2go.list to the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. This can be done by using your preferred editor.

$ editor /etc/apt/sources.list.d/x2go.list

Then add the X2Go repository (binaries and sources) as a couple of new lines (example for Debian wheezy):

x2go.list
# X2Go Repository (release builds)
deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian wheezy main
# X2Go Repository (sources of release builds)
deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian wheezy main

# X2Go Repository (nightly builds)
#deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian wheezy heuler
# X2Go Repository (sources of nightly builds)
#deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian wheezy heuler

Note: If you have not got a folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ add the lines to /etc/apt/sources.list.

Please perform an update of your APT package database:

$ apt-get update

After the update you should be able to access the X2Go packages via the apt command family. As a first action you should install our x2go-keyring package and refresh the apt cache:

$ apt-get install x2go-keyring && apt-get update

Now you can search for X2Go related package that are now available for your APT system:

$ apt-cache search x2go

Congratulations, you are now able to access the X2Go packages. You may continue by installing x2goserver, x2goclient or pyhoca-gui or any other of the available packages.
