  1. I am trying to install sudo apt-get install remmina remmina-plugin-* in debian, after “apt-get update” but it can’t find the remmina packages .

    I am getting this errors.

    E: Unable to locate package remmina
    E: Unable to locate package remmina-plugin-*

    is there any help? thanks

      Run these commands on Debian 9:

      $ echo 'deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main' | sudo tee --append /etc/apt/sources.list.d/stretch-backports.list >> /dev/null
      $ sudo apt update
      $ sudo apt install -t stretch-backports remmina remmina-plugin-rdp remmina-plugin-secret

  2. When running yum install remmina remmina-plugin-* I get:

    "No package remmina available, 
    No package remmina-plugin-* available ?"

    Any idea how I can install remmina on CentOS 7 ?


  3. The “yum install remmina remmina-plugin-*” command doesn’t work, say there is no package. In fact I only found a old version of remmina for Cent OS, probably would need to compile it, something I don’t remember how to do anymore hehehehe.

    • This is what you need to do.

      # yum install dnf.noarch yum-plugin-copr.noarch (if you don't already have them)
      # dnf copr enable hubbitus/remmina-next
      # dnf upgrade --refresh 'remmina*' 'freerdp*'

      With that I was able to get 1.2.0-rcgit-18 installed on my CentOS 7 workstation.

      • Executed the following command.

        # yum install dnf.noarch yum-plugin-copr.noarch

        Got the error..

        "no package dnf.noarch available."
        "Package yum-plugin-copr.noarch 0:1.1.31-45.el7 will be installed"
        "Installed:   yum-plugin-copr.noarch 0:1.1.31-45.el7 "
        Executing "dnf copr enable hubbitus/remmina-next" I got"dnf command not found"

        Running as root.

        Any idea how I can get remmina installed in this way on CentOS7 ?

    • That is because the command is wrong, the correct command is:

      ------------ On CentOS/RHEL ------------ 
      # yum install remmina remmina-plugins-*   

      ##pluginS is plural. yum search remmina for all those packages.

  4. Thanks, Aaron!

    Sorry for not having been clear enough. I’m not looking for a tool on Linux to access mainly Windows boxes (via rdp), but a tool that can connect to other Linux boxes and offers drag & drop – like MobaXterm.

    Am fully aware of that most file managers in Linux support sftp. However, I’d prefer a separate, file manager independent solution – like Remmina, but with drag & drop when in sftp mode.

    Hope this time I was clear enough :)

  5. Is there a similar tool like Remmina but with drag & drop capability in sftp mode?
    Like it’s nicely implemented in MobaXterm.
