• Remote Desktop Client


    I am looking for a Remote Client, which better integrates with the Cinnamon Desktop, is GTK+ based (less dependencies for installation) and is actively maintained. Any suggestions?

  • Last year I used https://freerdp.github.io/Remmina/index.html with my students. It’s GTK and actively developed.

    Cheers!

  • i like tigervnc myself. very lightweight.

  • I am looking at Vinagre right now. It seems more up to date than Remmina. Has anyone used it? I will look into tigervnc too!

  • If I’m not wrong vinagre is Ubuntu’s default (or at least it was). It should work nicely as well.

    Cheers!

    What are you trying to remote in to? OS, Desktop, and is it within the LAN? The answer to these questions could affect what software is recommended. I agree with Karasu, and also recommend Remmina. I use it for VNC and windows server/workstation RDP.

    Depending on what you’re trying to accomplish, X2Go might be worth a look at. I wouldn’t use it to remote into a Cinnamon desktop, but would use it to remote into mate,xfce, or lxde.

  • I also use Remmina with Cinnamon DE. It is by far the best RDP client experience for me.

  • maybe i’m weird, but I just use rdesktop from the command line after having weird issues with various GUI clients in the past. May have to try them again and see what shakes.
