Description Helmut Jarausch 2013-10-17 08:57:44 UTC
Please consider adding the "4th version of nx" which is now called nomachine-4
Please see
Currently there is nomachine_4.0.352_1_x86_64.tar.gz

I haven't checked the license if it's compatible with GenToo.

Many thanks,

Sorry I still did not find the time to work on this, as this is incompatible with "real" NX (x2go and old nx servers/clients). At least updating the title for interested people

Comment 3 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2015-03-26 14:32:38 UTC
net-misc/nxplayer is in tree now (I am preparing last rites for older NX packages, so at least the player will be there)
Comment 4 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2017-11-24 09:57:30 UTC
They are moving further away from NX with each release, moving back to maintainer-wanted (if someone is interested in handling this closed-source system)

Dropping net-misc/nxplayer too as it goes along

For the rest, x2go is in tree and works fine :)
