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 && make install
By default the $PREFIX for installation is /usr/local, so basically your (e.g.) x2goclient application will be found in /usr/local/bin if the above command series finishes successfully.
For uninstallation use
$ cd </path/to>/<x2go-tarball_version> $ make uninstall
The following X2go projects support tarball installation. If you find a reference to a release version here that has not yet been release (i.e. is not available as tarball) then this means that it will be available in the code project's next upcoming release.
