This is a module for managing
x2go server and client installations.
This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform, a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.
If you find any issues, they may be submitted to our bug tracker.
x2go module is quite minimal, like
x2go itself and simply installs
the required packages and allows you to configure the most common files with
safe defaults in place.
x2go client is installed by default. To disable this, set
false in Hiera.
To install and configure the
x2go server, set
true in Hiera.
x2go requires a functioning window manager on the server to be useful and
it does not perform well with compositing window managers, such as GNOME 3.
See https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:de-compat for additional information.
It is recommended that you use the SIMP gnome module
enable_mate to use the MATE window manager (or GNOME 2 if MATE is
x2go server clipboard is set to
server by default. This
means that the client clipboard will not be exposed to the server to which you
are connecting. This is done to prevent sensitive information from the client
leaking onto the server by accident.
You can change this by setting the following in Hiera:
--- x2go::server::agent_options: '-clipboard': 'both'
Valid options include:
both=> Bi-directional clipboard
server=> Server side and Server to Client
client=> Client side and Client to Server
none=> Disable the clipboard
Please read our Contribution Guide.
This module includes Beaker acceptance tests using the SIMP Beaker Helpers. By default the tests use Vagrant with VirtualBox as a back-end; Vagrant and VirtualBox must both be installed to run these tests without modification. To execute the tests run the following:
bundle install bundle exec rake beaker:suites
NOTE: When testing this module, you will probably want to run with
BEAKER_destroy=no, install the
x2go client locally and connect to the
running VM to ensure proper functionality.
Please refer to the SIMP Beaker Helpers documentation for more information.
