x2go module for Puppet

This module provides classes to manage x2go client, server and thin client environment (aka tce).

You may choose to use either the baikal version (only bug-fixes) or the main.

About this fork

This module has been forked from ngiger/puppet-x2go because the original author switched to Saltstack.


See the files under test for more examples.

To install the x2go client

class { 'x2go':
  install_client => true,

This sets ensure => present for the package. If you want to set a different value, you can override the x2go::client::ensure and x2go::server::ensure parameter using hiera.

To remove the x2go client:

class { 'x2go::client':
  ensure => 'absent',

To only install the x2go server:

class { 'x2go':
  install_client => false,
  install_server => true,

To install a x2go thin client environment (tce)

:red_circle: The tce class has additional dependencies - which are not needed for x2go client or server class.

Dependencies when using the thin client environment

  • erwbgy-ssh >= 0.2.1
  • domcleal-augeasproviders >= 1.2.0
  • ngiger-dnsmasq >= 0.1.0
  • jbeard-nfs >= 0.1.7
  • jbeard-portmap >= 0.1.7
class { 'x2go::tce':
  version          => 'latest',
  x2go_tce_base    => '/opt/x2gothinclient', # will have chroot and etc directories below
  export_2_network => '',

You will probably have to customize your installation: see the x2go wiki
