Alongside with the instructions on the main Debian repository page, we provide a repository archive for archived X2Go Debian packages for deprecated Debian GNU/Linux releases. These are provided in the state they were in after their last successful build. This repository is not updated at all, other than when a new Debian GNU/Linux release version is deprecated.
Make sure to either have installed the
x2go-keyring package previously or add the GPG key as described on the main Debian repository page.
If you already have the X2Go Debian Repository in your apt sources, the only thing you need to do is changing the repository address from
If this is a new installation on a fresh machine, follow these steps. Note, that these packages are completely unmaintained and bug reports will not be accepted. This also holds for security-related issues.
Please add the file
x2go-archive.list to the folder
This can be done by using your preferred editor.
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/add the lines to
$ editor /etc/apt/sources.list.d/x2go-archive.list
Then add the Archived X2Go Packages repository (binaries and sources) as a couple of new lines (example for Debian squeeze):
# Archived X2Go Packages Repository (release builds) deb http://archives.packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze extras main # Archived X2Go Packages Repository (sources of release builds) deb-src http://archives.packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze extras main # Archived X2Go Packages Repository (Saimaa ESR builds) #deb http://archives.packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze extras saimaa # Archived X2Go Packages Repository (sources of Saimaa ESR builds) #deb-src http://archives.packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze extras saimaa # Archived X2Go Packages Repository (nightly builds) #deb http://archives.packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze extras heuler # Archived X2Go Packages Repository (sources of nightly builds) #deb-src http://archives.packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze extras heuler

unstablefor convenience, you should not use them. Our pseudo-codename setup is not guaranteed to be in sync with Debian's releases, so using the
stablecodename might mean that you will actually get packages for what Debian calls
oldstableafter a new Debian distro release for a considerable amount of time.
Please perform an update of your APT package database:
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get update --allow-insecure-repositories
Otherwise, please try to first fetch the key again as outlined in the bootstrapping instructions.
After the update you should be able to access the archived 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 archived X2Go related packages that are now available for your APT system:
$ apt-cache search x2go
Congratulations, you are now able to access the archived X2Go packages. You may continue by installing x2goserver, x2goclient or pyhoca-gui or any other of the available packages.
