These are instructions to install and use x2go in order to launch COSSAN-X.
You must have access to server iru1.liv.ac.uk. Contact email@example.com for any issues.
Download the appropriate x2go client here based on your Operating System
Install x2go Client
Double click on the installation file and you should get a series of prompts as follows. (Diagrams apply to Windows client)
The X2go client can be installed directly from the software repository. For instance on Fedora/CentOS systems:
sudo dnf search x2goclient
for Ubuntu/Debian systems
sudo apt-get install x2goclient
- Once x2go client is installed, launch the new installation.
- Start a new session. From the top menu choose Session → Session Management → New Session.
- Configure the session as follows. Remember to untick Auto-Login or you will be prompted for a passphrase. Choose Session Type: Published Applications
Choose 'OK'. You may encounter an error saying 'x2goclient.exe has stopped working'. If so, choose 'Close the Program' and reopen it from your desktop menu. This is a known bug which is expected to be addressed in the next release of the client.
As soon as you start x2go, you should be able to launch the new session you saved.
