Subject: Very old version of x2goclient (4.0.3.1-4) available for armhf
Date: Thu, 24 Mar 2016 10:17:38 +0000
Package: x2goclient

Version: 4.0.3.1-4

HW platform: armhf (all 5 Raspberry PI models) 

I do not know, if this is intentional that x2goclient is not available at 
http://packages.x2go.org/debian/pool/main/x/x2goclient/
for the ARMHF platform.  This platform is used by the Raspberry PI.

The new Raspberry PI 3 has a quad-core cpu and runs at 1,2 GHz.
This should be good enough for an x2goclient.

I did compile the source code once, but I do not want do to that all the time.

I did however find an x2goclient 4.0.5.0-1 on the internet compiled for ARMHF.
This client was compiled for Debian SID and not for Debian Jessie.

So I installed the package manualy.

The question is now:
Is it OK for you to install a Debian SID package of x2goclient on Debian Jessie?

BTW: The repository http://packages.x2go.org/fedora/23/main/ contains 
packages for the POWER PC architecture.

It would be nice to have the armhf packages also. 

And just in case the SD-Card Image for Rasberry Pi (Mike Gabriel) was not answered:

Download the Lite SD-Card from:
https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite_latest
Then log in and install X11 and with
# apt-get install x2goclient 
the install x2go client and you are done.

The full Raspbian Image is a showcase to tell people what they can do with this small computer.

Have a nice day,

Hi Stefan (Baur), hi all,

@Stefan: on an event in Frankfurt, you had X2Go Client as thin client  
running on a Rasberry Pi.

How much effort would it be to make such image available for the public?

@all: does anyone of you have Rasberry Pis running a minimal X2Go  
(Thin) Client system and are you willing to share (a) the installation  
procedure or (b) the SD Card image?

Thanks+Greets,
Mike

That was a standard Raspbian image with an added X2Go repo - I think
Mike#2 hosts that.

I would suggest providing a step-by-step install instruction like we
have for the regular, x86/x64-based client, instead.
Providing an image is almost like shipping a binary blob, and the
SDcard is an 8 GB model, I think. Even compressed, that wastes a lot
of server space.

Also, the startup sequence I used was a bit hackish - X is running as
root and starts up xmessage as a primitive menu, with one option then
starting X2GoClient with the command line parameters for TCE mode.

So it's not recommended for production use.

Also, I would really recommend using a second-generation Raspi for
performance reasons.

Karl-Heinz Hellmann and Franz L?ckl operate "niuco", a company that
specializes in Raspberry-Pi-based ThinClients.  They actually donated
the Raspi you saw to the X2Go Project (thanks again for that!).

I CC'ed them both, let's see what they have to add.

Kind Regards,
Stefan

Control: close -1

We're now providing official, automatic Raspbian builds (both release and
nightly versions) in a special repository. I didn't want to mix Debian with
Raspbian packages, thus created a new standalone repository for Raspbian.
