Installation on Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives
It's possible to download the deb package from the Download page and install it using:
cd "~/folder with the downloaded file" sudo dpkg -i "file name.deb"
Installation on Arch Linux and derivatives
In the AUR you can find the latest available version, it can be downloaded and built using yaourt (or a similar AUR helper) using
yaourt -S remmina-plugin-rdesktop and then following the AUR helper instructions.
It's possible to download the tar.zst package from the Download page and install it using:
cd "~/folder with the downloaded file" sudo pacman -U "remmina-plugin-rdesktop-version.tar.zst"
Installation from source code
To build Remmina Plugin RDesktop from the source code you will need also Remmina Plugin Builder, a minimal development environment to build plugins for Remmina.
The building process simply needs the extraction of both Remmina Plugin Builder and Remmina Plugin RDesktop source code using:
cd "~/folder with the downloaded files" tar xzf remmina-plugin-builder-*.tar.gz tar xzf remmina-plugin-rdesktop-*.tar.gz
Next you will need to compile the plugin using:
mkdir build cp -r remmina-plugin-builder-*/* build cp -r remmina-plugin-rdesktop-*/* build/remmina-plugin-to-build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr . make sudo make install sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -q /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ cd ..
After the installation, if no errors were reported the folder build can be removed from root or via
sudo rm -rf "build" and the same for the downloaded source package.
After executing the manual installation from source code an automatic software uninstall will not be possibile but you will have to manually delete all the installed files that were reported during the last installation step.
