Xpra Linux Installation
Back to the GUI Programs page
This page provides Xpra installation instructions for client computers running Linux operating system distributions.
The recommended option is to use the distribution specific packages if possible:
Due to the package upgrades the distribution specific package requires, we recommend installing Xpra from their repo. This way the updated packages can just take priority and not remove existing system packages.
The "bionic" in the second wget below refers to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and this keyword must match your Ubuntu version. For a list of recent Ubuntu version code names, read Ubuntu Releases.
sudo -i wget https://xpra.org/gpg.asc apt-key add gpg.asc cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d wget https://xpra.org/repos/bionic/xpra.list apt-get update apt-get install xpra exit
Make sure the epel-release package is installed. If it is not, read Fedora EPEL Help.
sudo su - rpm --import https://winswitch.org/gpg.asc cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ curl -O https://winswitch.org/downloads/CentOS/winswitch.repo yum install xpra
sudo apt-get install xpra
