This is taken from the community documentation on: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX.

Step 1: Identify the machine you want to remote into.

Step 2: On this machine, add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list file, step by step:

Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
add

to the end of the file. If you only want binaries, add this line only:

Step 3: Add the GPG key, to authenticate the source server and files:

Code:
wget http://mirror.ubuntulinux.nl/seveas.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
Step 4: Update apt:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
Step 5: Download and install FreeNX:

Code:
sudo aptitude install freenx
If asked during installation about keys, accept the NoMachine keys.

Step 6: Restart the FreeNX Server:

Code:
sudo nxserver --restart
Step 7: Installing the NX Client package: I'm assuming you're using another Ubuntu machine!!!!

Redo steps 1 -4 on the client to add the Seveas package repository to your machine

Step 8:

Code:
sudo aptitude install nxclient
will install an nxclient that will suit your needs. Otherwise, visit the freenx website to figure out more: http://freenx.berlios.de/
