How to Install Remmina on Ubuntu 22.04

In this easy-to-follow guide, we’ll walk beginners through the process of seamlessly installing Remmina, a powerful remote desktop client for Linux distributions, on Ubuntu 22.04.

What is Remmina

Remmina is a remote desktop client that’s written in GTK+. It’s designed to be a valuable tool for system administrators who work with a significant number of remote computers. Remmina supports a variety of network protocols, including RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol), VNC (Virtual Network Computing), NX, XDMCP, and SSH.

Remmina provides a tabbed interface that facilitates managing multiple remote desktop connections simultaneously. Whether you’re connecting to Windows computers using RDP or to Linux desktops (or other systems) using VNC and other protocols, Remmina proves to be an essential tool for controlling remote systems. This can be particularly useful for tasks like managing servers or providing technical support.

Install Remmina on Ubuntu

1. Update  the package lists for upgrades and new package installations by entering this command:

sudo apt-get update

2. Install Remmina using the following command:

sudo apt-get install remmina

During the process, the system may ask for your confirmation. If so, press Y and then Enter to continue the installation.

Once the installation is complete, you can start Remmina by typing ‘remmina’ into the terminal.


Note:  Remmina plugins are not installed by default. If you plan on using RDP, SSH, or other protocols, you’ll need to install these plugins separately.

To install the RDP plugin, use this command:

sudo apt-get install remmina-plugin-rdp

For the VNC plugin, use the following command:

sudo apt-get install remmina-plugin-vnc

By following this guide, you should be able to successfully install Remmina on your Ubuntu 22.04 system, preparing it for your remote desktop requirements.
