    Thanks for the tutorial.

    I had to make following changes to make it work with 0.9.14 release:
    step 2. Download and extract the tarball.
    extract the gauc-client tarball to /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps.

    step 6. add following line to configuration file (/etc/guacamole/

    # Location to read extra .jar's from
    lib-directory:  /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/guacamole/WEB-INF/classes

    I hope it helps others find it helpful.

    Please update the tutorial for 0.9.14 release.
