phoca on linuxtag 2010

Thank you for visiting our booth on Linuxtag and our talk at minidebconf (debian). This Linuxtag we’ve showed the visitors the features of the upcomming release like the new “x2goplugin” or the “desktop sharing” feature. Now we’ll try to finish our work on the new release so you can use it soon. Our little “phoca” was a highlight of our booth and often photographed…

x2go talk in munich

Open Source Treffenx2go will can be seen again on the Open Source Treffen in Munich. We will present the new plugin and the features of the upcomming release “baikal” (3.1).

blog. instead of /blog

We’ve changed the url of the blog – so please update your Bookmarks.
The new url is: http://blog.x2go.org
This change will help us to move our blog to other servers and to keep the addresses of our sites short an generic.

Voice over IP via X2go

The latest changes on our Pulseaudio implementation are making it possible to use Voice Over IP applications. This is a short demonstration with the new Nokia N900 phone (we could test this device only for a very short period of time). This will work on more common setups like desktop clients too.

For anybody new to X2go – this video shows a client application which makes it possible to connect to a remote desktop. After the the connection is established you’ll see a kde 3.5 Desktop which is running on a remote machine – not local. The started voip application also runs on the server machine. What you hear at the end of the video is the recorded output of the server side voip application.

best regards,

Heinz

Hello Weblog visitors. If you wan’t to see x2go in action or if you have questions about it, you’ll have soon the chance to visit our booth in Bottrop.  The Event is named “OpenRheinRuhr” – you can visit their pages here (http://www.openrheinruhr.de/).

If you wan’t to give x2go a try before this, you’re invited to follow a fine little manual on ProLinux (http://www.pro-linux.de/berichte/x2go-ubuntu.html).

After the survey about desktop virtualizations shows that it is important for you to let the users have access to their own devices, please use the comment feature of this blog to let us know which devices are needed! This would be a great help.

best regards,

Heinz

Can a terminal server be part of “desktop virtualization”?

The number of emails with the subject “desktop virtualization” is increasing. All of them asking for a “one virtual machine  for one user” model. A terminal server normally can handle more than one user on one machine and linux really has great tools to respect different wishes of different users on one system. With limits you can control the cpu usage etc…

Surly you can use both models with x2go and yes – we are working on virtual machine integration – but: is a terminal server a valid solution for desktop virtualisation?
