In this tutorial, we are going to see how to install X2Go, an open source remote desktop solution for Linux platforms. The X2Go server must be installed on Ubuntu/Linux Mint or any other Linux-based platform; the client can be installed on any other platform (Linux, Windows, or Mac OS X).

You can install X2Go on the following Ubuntu/Linux Mint distros:
  • Ubuntu 15.04/14.10/14.04
  • Linux Mint 17.2 or older

Install now the client on any other computer running Ubuntu/Linux Mint using this command:
