Newbie Corner

I have installed both the guacamole-server and guacamole-client packages. I cannot find any guides online for Arch systems. I have no clue what to do next.

My goal is to connect to my Win 10 machine through my Manjaro machine via the Brave browser.

Many thanks to whoever is willing to help! :)

@Kppqju77 fixed. Thanks!

Looks like libwebsocket is missing an "s" for libwebsockets.

To begin with freerdp 2.0.0 needs a writeable home directory from the user it is used. It wants to store certificates in a .config dir inside home. So you need to look what user guacd is running under. Then create a home dir for it and make it writeable to this user. Then retry guacamole. I can assure you it works.

PS: in a stock arch config the user is daemon. There are comments that this is probably not the best idea for a writeable home dir. So feel free to change the guacd user to some new user/group.

Any idea why this is?

New version 1.1.0 pushed. RDP works well now with freerdp package from [extra].

freerdp 2.0 support is not yet ready in guacamole upstream, so there is no other chance of making it work. Which it does now. Thank you.

OMG freerdp-1.1.0 package is one of the most patched package I've never seen... Anyway, IDK if version 1.1.0 has all features that v2 branch has, many windows servers doesn't work fine with old RDP clients and this package replaces freerdp in [community]. I've modified PKGBUILD as you request, but I will not use in my servers until project add the correct FreeRDP support. Please, test and report if all is ok.

@figue In fact I made it work. You have to add Marcel_K's hint to the pkgbuild like this:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/usr/bin --with-systemd-dir=/usr/lib/systemd/system CPPFLAGS="-Wno-error=pedantic -Wno-error=stringop-truncation"

I used freerdp-1.1.0 which seems to work flawlessly.

@skraw that's correct. RDP support is very old and I couldn't make it work. If somebody know how to do it, please, tell me and I will add it (because I'm the first interested). You can request upstream to support 2.0 Freerdp library so it's almost stable now.
