guac-install

NOTE: Ubuntu users having issues with RDP have reported the following fix:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:remmina-ppa-team/freerdp-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install freerdp2-dev freerdp2-x11

NOTE: Debian users having issues with RDP have reported the following fix:

sudo bash -c 'echo "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-backports main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list'
sudo apt update
sudo apt -y -t buster-backports install freerdp2-dev libpulse-dev

Script for installing Guacamole 1.3.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 or newer (with MySQL, or remote MySQL). It should also work on pure Debian, Raspbian, Linux Mint (18/LMDE 4 or newer) or Kali Linux. I have tested this with Debian 10.3.0 (Buster). If other versions don't work please open an issue. It is likely due to a required library having a different name.

Run script, enter MySQL Root Password and Guacamole User password. Guacamole User is used to connect to the Guacamole Database.

The script attempts to install tomcat9 by default (it will fall back on tomcat8 if the available version is 8.5.x or newer, otherwise it will fall back to tomcat7). If you want to manually specify a tomcat version there's a commented out line you can modify. Have at it.

If you're looking to also have NGINX / Let's Encrypt / HTTPS click HERE

MFA/2FA

By default the script will not install MFA support (QR code for Google/Microsoft Authenticator, Duo Mobile, etc. or Duo Push), if you do want MFA support you can use the -t or --totp or for Duo -d or --duo flags on the command line. Or modify the script variables installTOTP=true or installDuo=true. Do not install both

FYI

Here's a cool PowerShell module for using the Guacamole API: https://github.com/UpperM/guacamole-powershell

Does not work if you have MFA turned on (however, you can authenticate via the gui and get a token to use it that way)

How to Run:

Download file directly from here:

wget https://git.io/fxZq5 -O guac-install.sh

Make it executable:

chmod +x guac-install.sh

Run it as root:

Interactive (asks for passwords):

./guac-install.sh

Non-Interactive (values provided via cli):

./guac-install.sh --mysqlpwd password --guacpwd password --nomfa --installmysql

OR

./guac-install.sh -r password -gp password -o -i

Once installation is done you can access Guacamole by browsing to: http://<host_or_ip>:8080/guacamole/ The default credentials are guacadmin as both username and password. Please change them or disable guacadmin after install!

guac-upgrade

Script for upgrading currently installed Guacamole instance (previously installed via this script/guide). This will also now update the TOTP or Duo extensions if used.

If looks for the tomcat folder in /etc/ (E.G. /etc/tomcat7 or /etc/tomcat8) hopefully that works to identify the correct tomcat version/path 😄 I'm open to suggestions/pull requests for a cleaner method.
