Packages for Ubuntu are provided for several platforms (amd64/i386, lucid/maverick/natty/oneiric. From our nightly-builds on Ubuntu Launchpad we regularly copy package to the Launchpad PPA: ppa:x2go/stable.
Before adding X2Go's Launchpad package repository to your APT system, please make sure that you use Ubuntu's
universe repository on your Ubuntu system. The very minimal
/etc/apt/sources.list must look like this. (Of course we recommend to have Ubuntu security updates enabled, explaining how to do this is off-topic here, though.):
deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu <my-ubuntu-version> main universe
Use the following commands to add the
ppa:x2go/stable as a package source to your local system.
Before doing so, you might like to learn about apt-get, sudo and ppas
Alternatively you can also use the Ubuntu software center.
You might have to install
To to install
add-apt-repository on Ubuntu 10.04 or 12.04:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
To to install
add-apt-repository on Ubuntu 14.04 and beyond:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
Afterwards you can add our ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:x2go/stable sudo apt-get update
The X2Go related packages should now be listed calling:
apt-cache search x2go
Congratulations, you are now able to access the X2Go packages. You may continue by installing
pyhoca-gui or any other of the available packages.
For example, if you only want to install the X2Go client:
sudo apt install x2goclient
If you are on a site that uses a HTTP proxy to connect to websites on the internet, make sure you run the following commands first before adding the X2Go PPA to your APT package management system (replace
my_proxy_port with your local site's proxy settings):
export http_proxy=http://<my.proxy.server>:<my_proxy_port>/ export https_proxy=http://<my.proxy.server>:<my_proxy_port>/
