This script will automatically install freeNX server and NX Client on Ubuntu (32 or 64 bit). It has been tested on Lucid, Karmic, Jaunty, Intrepid and Hardy. Please let me know if there are any problems.

$ chmod +x

Go along with whatever it asks you.

    Nice script for a ugly product.
    Why does this NX stuff not work against older Server Versions ? (i.e. NX Commercial Server 1.6.x or FreeNX first generation)

    Such a product without *working* downwards comatibility is K.O. Criteria here.

    Perhaps it is a waste of time, to maintainance such a product.

    We’re going to switch to x2go …

    x2go? I’ll have to look into that. Thanks for the comment!
