[edit] X2Go

[edit] Summary

The X2Go project has taken over development of the old NX libraries and has developed new clients and server code around it. We will move to use the X2Go NX library in Fedora and include the full X2Go suite.

[edit] Current status

[edit] Detailed Description

The current nx package in Fedora is based on the last open source release from NoMachine. NoMachine is no longer developing nx as an open source project. The X2Go project has taken the nx code and is maintaining it as well as developing new client and server code around it.

[edit] Benefit to Fedora

Fedora will contain a maintained, secure remote desktop/application access solution that works well over slower Internet connections.

[edit] Scope

[edit] Upgrade/compatibility impact

The current nx package contains both server (nxagent) and client (nxproxy) components. nx will be obsoleted by the nx-libs, nxagent and nxproxy packages. This allows updates to be without updated clients to be seamless.

However, clients such as remmina-nx should change to require nxproxy, and server components such as freenx-server should change to require nxagent.

[edit] How To Test

For a server, install x2goserver.

For a client, install x2goclient.

Run x2goclient and connect to your server.

[edit] User Experience

N/A (not a System Wide Change)

[edit] Dependencies

freenx-server qtnx remmina-plugins-nx

As a provenpackager I can make the needed small changes in requires.

[edit] Contingency Plan

We could perhaps revive the old nx package (with epoch bump if necessary), but this seems unlikely.
