View Full Version : [ubuntu] RDP client

November 18th, 2008, 09:38 PM
Hi, I am not sure if this is the right place for this question but here goes.

I did a clean install of 8.10 on my laptop and in my previous build I had a RDP client with a Tux icon that is very similar to the look of windows' mstsc.

I would like to reinstall that client but I forgot the name, does anyone have an idea as to what client I am mentioning? Possibly could someone suggest an alternative?

I have no clue on which exact RDP client you mean. There are a few frontends to "rdesktop". My favorite is tsclient which does look a bit like the windows cousins

"Terminal Server Client"
"Remotedesktop Client"
"Remote Desktop Viewer"

puppywhacker, the TSC looks to be the best. None of the others that you mentioned are the ones I had. Thanks, I will be using TSC to do work related things.

Please mark this thread as solved

gnome-rdp is much, much faster than the terminal server client that comes with 8.10.

jimv, when you say faster, in what regards?
