X2Go Packages for Redhat Enterprise Linux and derivatives

X2Go packages are provided by the Fedora EPEL project for RHEL and derivative distributions (e.g. CentOS and ScientificLinux). See using EPEL for instructions on how to configure the EPEL repository.

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

$ yum 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.

If you wish to install newer or test versions directly from the X2Go project, follow the instructions below in addition to configuring the EPEL repository.

Do not mix-and-match packages from the official EPEL repository with packages from the X2Go EPEL 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.

Adding the X2Go Repository to your Package System

Add the file x2go.repo to the folder /etc/yum.repos.d/. This can be done using by your preferred editor.

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

A sample content for this file can be found here, with the original information on Be sure to edit this example to match your needs, mostly the enabled key. source-tagged repositories are only needed if you intend to build packages from source, while extras-labeled repositories are always needed. By default, the release-labeled binaries repository is enabled, while the nightly-labeled binaries repository is disabled. If you want to try newer, unreleased software, disable the release-labeled binaries repository and enable the nightly-labeled binaries repository.
