Remmina: The GTK+ Remote Desktop Client
Initially developed by Vic Lee
Remmina is a remote desktop client written in GTK+, aiming to be useful for system administrators and travellers, who need to work with lots of remote computers in front of either large monitors or tiny netbooks. Remmina supports multiple network protocols in an integrated and consistant user interface. Currently RDP, VNC, NX, XDMCP and SSH are supported.
Remmina is released in separated source packages:
- "remmina", the main GTK+ application
- "remmina-plugins", a set of plugins
Remmina is free and open-source software, released under GNU GPL license.
Usually remmina is included in your linux distribution or in an external repository. Do not ask for distribution packages or precompiled binaries here. This is a development site.
To install it, just copy and paste the following three lines on a terminal window
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:remmina-ppa-team/remmina-next sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install remmina remmina-plugin-rdp libfreerdp-plugins-standard
By default the RDP, SSH and SFTP plugins are installed. You can view a list of available plugins with
apt-cache search remmina-plugin
From the source code
Follow the following guides:
- How to compile "next" branch on Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10: Compile-on-Ubuntu-14.04-and-14.10
- How to compile "next" branch on Fedora 20: Compile-on-Fedora-20
- For Debian 7.6 you can use the Ubuntu guide, but you must disable SSH with -DWITH_LIBSSH=OFF when executing cmake. libssh provided with debian 7 (v 5.4) is older than the needed version 6.x.
Just select Remmina from your application menu or execute remmina from the command line
Remmina support also the following options:
-a, --about Show about dialog -c, --connect=FILE Connect to a .remmina file -e, --edit=FILE Edit a .remmina file -n, --new Create a new connection profile -p, --pref=PAGENR Show preferences dialog page -x, --plugin=PLUGIN Execute the plugin -q, --quit Quit the application -s, --server=SERVER Use default server name -t, --protocol=PROTOCOL Use default protocol -i, --icon Start as tray icon -v, --version Show the application's version --display=DISPLAY X display to use
You can configure everything from the graphical interface or editing by hand the files under $HOME/.remmina or $HOME/.config/remmina
