    Installing the FreeNX server on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat

    Installing FreeNX on Ubuntu 10.10 by modifying the repository after you have installed it.

    • Open your terminal and type by : Applications > Accessories > Terminal
    • Now type :

      sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freenx-team-ppa-maverick.list

      Now make changes these :
      deb maverick main
      deb-src maverick main


      deb lucid main
      deb-src lucid main
    • Now Install Open SSH server by typing the following line in terminal :
      sudo apt-get install openssh-server

    Installation of FreeNX server on Ubuntu. In Ubuntu, users have two choices for their NX server :

    • FreeNX
    • neatx


    Download it from here: nxsetup.tar.gz. Extract the file nxsetup. Keep it safe. We will need it.

    Neat X

    • Open your terminal from Applications > Accessories > Terminal and type in this command :
      sudo apt-get install python-software-properties && sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freenx-team
    • Then Update Aptitude Package Manager:
      sudo apt-get update
    • At this point, the repository has been added and aptitude had been updated. Now install the neatx-server package using Aptitude to install extra needed packages.
      sudo apt-get install neatx-server

    Now, navigate to the directory to where you have extracted the nxsetup file. Then, move the file into the proper directory: /usr/lib/nx/ with:

    sudo mv nxsetup /usr/lib/nx/nxsetup

    Finally, make sure you change the ownership of this file once you moved it so that it is owned by root:
    sudo chown root:root /usr/lib/nx/nxsetup
    Now use nxsetup to install necessary files and create the special user "nx"
    sudo /usr/lib/nx/nxsetup --install

    Re: Installing the FreeNX server on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat

    Is it possible to install FreeNX by exactly this method to install it on Kubuntu Linux? Also i have Kubuntu 9.10. So will this version of the file work on Kubuntu 9.10 as well? Or will i have to update Kubuntu to 10.10? Also if i use Kubuntu and not Ubuntu 10.10 will this work? If it does, then i dont mind updrading the OS to version 10.10 I have few thin clients to setup at my small Office Setup which i operate from my house itself. Thanks!
