  Description     : Open Source NX Client

OpenNX is a Free / Open client to NX based terminal servers.

It should be able to replace NoMachine's non-free nxclient.

Upstream already provides Debian pacages, but I haven't investigated
them yet; I have seen that there's a directory "wxWidgets patches" on
the sourceforce download page, looks like it's required to patch
wxwidgets.  So packaging this might not be trivial...

cheers

Hi,

I'm the upstream author of OpenNX and just stumbled over this ...

>Upstream already provides Debian pacages, but I haven't investigated
>them yet; I have seen that there's a directory "wxWidgets patches" on
>the sourceforce download page, looks like it's required to patch

Just some comments on that:

There's *no* wxWidgets patch necessary (not anymore for OpenNX). The
original issue of wxWidgets (http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/8747)
still exists (it's fixed in wxWidgets SVN but the fix never made it into
any stable versions), but i managed to work around that.

However,
*My* current Debian/Ubuntu packages do something that probably never
would be accepted by some debian QA process: They bundle nxssh(+patches)
as well as several NX libs into a single package.
So in order to get an official package those would have to be splitted
into separate packages (i would use Ubundtu PPA stuff if it were
up-to-date but unfortunately it isnt).

Furthermore, they use a directory (/usr/NX) which is not conforming to
FSS - reason for that: To be 100% compatible to NoMachine's proprietary
client...

BTW, you can inspect/fetch the packaging sources at

https://build.opensuse.org/package/files?package=opennx&project=home%3Afelfert

(that's OBS which covers debian build targets)

Cheers
 -Fritz
