It might be helpful to provide some insight here. My name is Mike
Gabriel and I have been an active co-developer of X2Go now for more
than a year. Apart from x2goclient itself, most X2Go subprojects have
been reviewed and improved by me during the last year. Please check
git.x2go.org for reference.
What Stefan is asking (and I join up with him) is to include either
x2goclient or pyhoca-gui (X2Go client applications like nxclient,
grdesktop, etc.) into your distribution.
If you want to use X2Go you surely need to install an ,,X2Go Server'', add
deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze main
to your APT setup and install the ,,x2goserver'' package.
On the client-side (i.e. on your local Debian/Ubuntu desktop you
either need the native X2Go client app ,,x2goclient'' or my Python
implementation of the x2go client protocol API: pyhoca-gui (or
pyhoca-cli, command line tool).
This is the minimal setup. What Stefan is asking for is to include
x2goclient (and/or pyhoca-gui, pyhoca-cli) into you thinstation
NOTE: The PXE environment we provide with X2Go is completely,
For x2goclient to have sound and/or file exchange working, however,
you need a running sshd listening on the localhost interface.
For pyhoca-gui/pyhoca-cli you even do not need the ssh daemon, as an
sftpserver and ssh port forwarding is fully integrated within the
python-x2go API (using python-paramiko).
If you have any further questions, need a demo server for testing
either of our clients (x2goclient, pyhoca-gui), please let me know I
can provide such setup.
