DEB version 

  • Download the DEBs
  • Change your working directory to the location where you saved the package and install it by running from a console:

    $ sudo dpkg -i nxclient_3.5.0-7_i386.deb
    $ sudo dpkg -i nxnode_3.5.0-9_i386.deb
    $ sudo dpkg -i nxserver_3.5.0-11_i386.deb

If you don’t have the sudo utility installed, log on as superuser («root») and run the commands without sudo.
Note: click here for detailed instructions on how to install the NX Client, NX Node and NX Server packages. The NX service can be controlled by the command /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –status|–start|–stop|–restart. Additional commands are available to configure the server. Try /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –help for more information. Please, don’t forget to download and read the NX Server Administrator’s Guide available here.



Method 2: FreeNX

In this method we are going to use the FreeNX server. First of all you need to add  the FreeNX Team PPA and its coresponding key to your system so the packages can be verified.

Edit your sources list and add the following at the and of the file:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Note that i used the lucid one because it is currently the newest provided.

In the next step if you visit the FreeNX Team at lanchpad you will notice the PPA’s key (Signing key: 1024R/D018A4CE). At this point you only need the amount following the slash D018A4CE. You can issue the following command to render the system aware of the key:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys D018A4CE

Now you are free to update and install

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install freenx

Then download and extract the setup script

wget tar zxvf nxsetup.tar.gz

Finally Install and run the setup script:

sudo cp nxsetup /usr/lib/nx/nxsetup sudo /usr/lib/nx/nxsetup --install

Now go download NoMachine’s NX Client and fill in your boxe’s IP. Dont forget to select Unix-custom and set openbox-session and set New virtual desktop in the settings tab.

[addition: theartofbone] You can add  «openbox-session»under the «run the following command» after connecting to get openbox running each time you try to connect..
