X2Go Packages for Fedora GNU/Linux

Do not mix-and-match packages from the official Fedora repository with packages from the X2Go Fedora repository. Due to differing version number schemes, you will indefinitely run into problems. If you really need to switch between repositories, make sure to uninstall all X2Go packages first.

Select one approach listed here, thus either the official (downstream) Fedora packages repository, or our X2Go Fedora repository and stick to it.

Unreleased versions and unofficial (related to the Fedora project) release packages are only available directly from the X2Go project, follow the instructions in the second section to configure your package manager for this.

Note that if you are on POWER (ppc64le), you will only be able to obtain X2Go from the official (downstream) Fedora packages repository.

Using the Official Fedora Packages Repository

Adding the X2Go Repository to Your Package System

For unsupported, archived Fedora versions, please refer to Fedora Archives.

Base Installation

Download the .repo file and save it to the correct location:

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo \

For reference, the file will also be inlined here, with the original information being available on


Edit this file with your preferred editor.

$ editor /etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo

As a rule of thumb: source-labeled repositories are never needed, unless you want to build packages from source. extras-tagged repositories are always needed.

By default, the release-labeled repository is enabled and the nightly-tagged repository is disabled. If you want to use the unreleased, more up-to-date packages, disable the release-labeled repository and enable the nightly-tagged repository.

Post-Addition Test

Now you can search for X2Go related package that are now available for your system via yum or dnf, whatever is appropriate for your system:

$ dnf search x2go


$ dnf search x2go

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