hello dear Experts, 

 

the topic of today:  RDP .- how to work with Remote-Desktop-Programmes on MX

 

due to corona i am working in home office - here on my linux box. 

 

therefore i need to be able to work with our companys terminal server - which sends me a rdp-file ... 

 

i cannot open or proceed to connect to the server (ad i do normally if i am on windows)

 

 

so the question is: what can i do now: with this  RDP .- how to work with Remote-Desktop-Programmes on MX

 

i have seen the article here https://opensource.com/article/18/6/linux-remote-desktop

these connections are made using remote desktop connection software, and there are many options available. I use Remmina because I like its minimal, easy-to-use user interface (UI). It's written in GTK+ and is open source under the GNU GPL license.

In this article, I'll explain how to use the Remmina client to connect remotely from a Linux computer to a Windows 10 system and a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 system.

 

Install Remmina on Linux

First, you need to install Remmina on the computer you'll use to access the other computer(s) remotely. If you're using Fedora, you can run the following command to install Remmina:

 


 

sudo dnf install -y remmina

 

well this does not work - how to proceed!?

It isn't in MXPI?

 

Isn't dnf Fedora/Red Hat ... while MX would use dpkg or apt since it is Debian based?

 

I don't really use Linux anymore...so I could be very much wrong...but I thought the command lines were different depending on distro.

 

Edit: Moved to the Linux forum.

Jim is correct. DNF is Red Hat, not Debian-based... MX uses apt-get.

good day dear adrynalyne, Mindovermaster, Jim K

 

many thanks for the quick answer - and for all your ideas - and knowledge-sharing.

Jim K :

thanks to you all - for setting me straight.

It's in Debian Backports and should install using Package Installer.
and ....Went to Synaptic and turned on the backport repositories long enough to get what I needed.
Tested connecting to a windows machine and it's working,

and .... Our newer version of MX package installer also allow you to just install one package from backports, 
and handles adding and removing the repo automatically.

thanks to you all  


have a great day. 


greetings 😊
