Freenx on Ubuntu (Dapper Drake)



NX server and client is a GREAT remote X approach that can tunnel over fairly narrow links well and does phenomenally well over a LAN. I frequently use NX in place of VNC when working with Linux based systems because the performance seems much better and the client has a nice way to choose from preset sessions. (You can also do individual applications, etc…) One of the benefits over X tunneling is the compression…. Anyway, I’ve gone through setting this up several times on various ubuntu 6.06 installs and thought I’d go ahead and document this on the web page so I didn’t have to keep hunting links each time….


Really, it’s very easy to setup… I’m trying to make sure I’ve got the bookmarks handy. http://free.linux.hp.com/~brett/seveas/freenx/dists/dapper-seveas/ Here are the repositories to add to your apt-get setup…. deb http://free.linux.hp.com/~brett/seveas/freenx dapper-seveas freenx
deb-src http://free.linux.hp.com/~brett/seveas/freenx dapper-seveas freenx and to add the key to the trusted keys (for package verification…) wget http://free.linux.hp.com/~brett/seveas/freenx/1135D466.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

After this you should install most everything starting with nx (or ending…) (freenx, nx, nxclient, nxplugin).

I should note ALL of the above is for Ubuntu 6.06 (dapper drake). (It’s a third party repository). (I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to cut and paste to and from the nx session.)

I should also link to the ubuntu wiki page for freenx.
