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, stretch, buster, sid) system. Only the i386 and amd64 architectures are supported. For armhf, see Instructions for Raspbian GNU/Linux.
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:
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
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 stretch):
# X2Go Repository (release builds) deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian stretch extras main # X2Go Repository (sources of release builds) deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian stretch extras main # X2Go Repository (Saimaa ESR builds) #deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian stretch extras saimaa # X2Go Repository (sources of Saimaa ESR builds) #deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian stretch extras saimaa # X2Go Repository (nightly builds) #deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian stretch extras heuler # X2Go Repository (sources of nightly builds) #deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian stretch extras heuler
Edit this new data and make sure to uncomment desired components and comment non-desired components. Only one group may be active at a given time. Switching between components requires uninstalling all X2Go packages first!
Note: If you have not gotten a directory named
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ add the lines to
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 packages 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.
The packages in this repository can be mirrored via
rsync -avP packages.x2go.org::debian </dest/path/of/local/mirror/debian>
