Windows- and Mac-specific instructions for installing X2Go.


1. At this link, https://wiki.classe.cornell.edu/Computing/WindowsRemoteLinuxScript, follow the instructions under "Installation on a Non-CLASSE computer."

2. Follow instructions in the video, or under "Usage on a CLASSE computer not connected to a lab network on a Personally owned computer," to try and launch a session.


1. You may need to download or update X11 or XQuartz, as described here: https://wiki.classe.cornell.edu/Computing/MacX2Go. This should be done before installing and configuring X2Go. Download link here: http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/

*IMPORTANT:* If X2Go is installed first, it may not communicate properly with XQuartz. If you encounter this problem, uninstall both X2Go and XQuartz, delete any remaining files associated with X2Go and XQuartz files manually, restart, and begin again, starting with XQuartz.

2. Follow instructions on the same page ( https://wiki.classe.cornell.edu/Computing/MacX2Go) to download and configure X2Go for Mac. Download link here: http://www.x2go.org.
