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, bullseye, sid) system. Only the i386 and amd64 architectures are supported. For armhf, see Instructions for Raspbian GNU/Linux.
Please switch to a user which has administrator privileges on your system in your preferred command line client:
The following command will ensure that your system will be able to work with the repository archive key.
$ 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.
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/add the lines to
$ 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 buster):
# X2Go Repository (release builds) deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian buster extras main # X2Go Repository (sources of release builds) deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian buster extras main # X2Go Repository (Saimaa ESR builds) #deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian buster extras saimaa # X2Go Repository (sources of Saimaa ESR builds) #deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian buster extras saimaa # X2Go Repository (nightly builds) #deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian buster extras heuler # X2Go Repository (sources of nightly builds) #deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian buster 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 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>
