Can I publish applications on Linux like Citrix does for Windows?


Hallo:

I'd like to know if there is any software for Linux which allow me to publish remote applications like Citrix for Windows.

What I want is to publish Linux applications (kwrite, open office, or the desktop) and allow users to connect them with a thin client (ej: vnc, navigator, ...) and execute them remotely.

This is what Citrix does with Windows applications. You connect to a html page, identify yourself and can see what server applications you can execute.

A combination of Vnc, xinetd, ... could to this, I suppose. But do you know any application that already do this?

Thanks

If the thin clients are running Linux, then all the users need to do is login to the remote machine, export the display to their thin client, and run the application. On the thin client
Code:
$ export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
$ xhost +remote-machine
to allow connections from the remote machine.
On the remote machine
Code:
$ export DISPLAY=client-machine:0.0
$ run-the-x-windows-app
Replace "remote-machine" and "client-machine" with IP addresses if necessary.

I think that zenworks does that. You can also buy citrix for linux and use citrix to push the apps.
