I’m currently using Jolicloud all the time on my workhorse netbook – the one that I take to clients sites / abroad / datacenters when consulting / doing bits of work. One annoying thing is the lack of a remote Windows Desktop Client. Searching the web shows this is a common problem, so heres how you install MS RDP.
- Press ALT + F1 at the same time
- Terminal window opens
- Type “sudo apt-get install tsclient” – you’ll get asked for your password
- Apt-get fetches the relevant packages and does the install
- To run the tsclient, simply open the terminal and type “tsclient”
I need to work out how to add a custom icon to the dashboard, tweet me if you know how – i’ve not bothered to work that out yet.
