Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" with x2go

23-05-2012, 12:34

Ubuntu 12.04 has been released. Today, we offer the 'Desktop' version with "remote office".

As for the previous desktop version (10.04), we rely on X2go to offer a full remote office, it is effective and easy to use.

Since the new desktop of Ubuntu ("unity") poses some problems to use remote desktop, we therefore installed this distribution with Gnome classic desktop. To use it you need the "X2go" client, which is available for Linux, Windows and Mac here: You should set the client by following the guide:

A very important feature for this LTS ("Long Term Support") distribution is that it will now be supported for 5 years (instead of 3 years previously).

This distribution is currently in BETA at OVH, feel free to post your comments here.
