Hi, wvbosch and welcome to the forum :)

Do you get a hint what's going wrong if you try running it from a terminal ?

32bit or 64bit Peppermint 6 ?

HI wvbosch

I know this not a big help but there's no reason it shouldn't work I'm using Reminna in Peppermint 6 and it works fine

Hi, I've just installed Remmina to both 32-bit and 64-bit machines.  Both installations went without incident and Remmina showed in the menu in the Internet category.
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

Hi Everybody,

Iím  using Peppermint 6  and Linux Mint 17.2 for testing I donít face any issue during installation .but Iím facing issue regarding RDP Session with Windows 2012 Server like freezing/hang/disconnect session/Reversing Caps Key when using Remmina . I had tried Remmina and Vinagre apps both have some bugs or limitation. Vinagre is performing better than remmina. There are any other apps which better and bug free it can be use in production environment with windows servers.

Regards,

Rajeev Gautam

I set up an RDP session on my wifes PC for her to connect to her works PC (Windows Server 2003) at first I tried xrdp but I couldn't get it to save display settings or login credentials so I tried Reminna and it's been flawless it really is like she's sitting at the remote machine no drop outs no lag, very impressive

Hi emegra You are right Remmina is working fine with Windows Server2003. But it  gives issue with Windows 2012 Server and Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 use version 8 of the Remote Desktop Protocol. However, older RDP clients that don't support RDP 8.0 can still connect to Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8, but they won't take advantage of new RDP 8.0 features, such as user experience and WAN optimization improvements.

For the best experience, use RDP 8.0. It's a part of Windows 8 and will also be available as an update for Windows 7 at some point in the future, after general availability of Windows Server 2012.


And Remmina available in software update Manager is 0.9.99.1 and it is working fine with older version but  It has lot off issue with Windows new versions. Remmina had released Version 1.2.

 https://github.com/FreeRDP/Remmina/wiki

As per web link instruction How to install Version 1.2. First Remove Older Version.

To install it, just copy and paste the following three lines on a terminal window

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:remmina-ppa-team/remmina-next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install remmina remmina-plugin-rdp libfreerdp-plugins-standard


I had just install this version on my laptop and it is working fine right now. I'll see what happen during the day.

Regards,

Rajeev Gautam

TVM rajeev2631007 :)

If it's for LAN access only, I wonder how the free splashtop would do

Hi PCNetSpec,

In India Teamviewer/Ammyy/LogmeIn is very popular for remote support.

https://www.teamviewer.com/hi/download/linux.aspx
http://www.ammyy.com/en/downloads.html
https://secure.logmein.com/

TeamViewer and Ammyy is free for Home and Personal Use. TeamViewer is very good and it is available for Linux as well.

Yeah I use Teamviewer a LOT .. but I'm *assuming* Splashtop (personal) doesn't require an interweb connection .. and everything's staying local
(I could be wrong though .. haven't tried it).

PCNetSpec, You are right splashtop Personal works like VNC (Server & Client)  & Symantec PCAnyWhere. I used a Lot Symantec Pcanywhere earlier to Support computers in LAN.

In my Network I have Windows 2012 Server as Terminal Server and more than 200 users connect to this server using Microsoft Remote Desktop client app. I'm planning to move my all old XP License computer with Linux OS or with embedded Linux Dump terminal. For that I need good RDP app and lightweight Linux (Which can embed in Flush Drive of 1 GB or 2 GB)  which is as good as Microsoft remote Desktop client to connect windows server. Right now I'm in RND (Research and Development) and testing Process.

Thanks for sharing.

Rajeev Gautam

I also obsered remmina gives issues of freezing and hang when you use low resolution (CRT) and small size monitor (15 inch). I don't know the exact reason or logic behind this. If we change it with 17 inch better resolution LCD monitor.it start performing better .Keyboard reversing happen due to remmina shortcut key feature (if you click Right Side Ctrl Key all shortcut happen on remote computer or left side ctrl key all shortcut start happen on local compute).
