This is my favourite GUI client for RDP on Linux thus far, and I use it everywhere. The reasons I like it: + it allows me to maintain a list of different configurations + it allows me to use a different rdesktop executable so I can use my wrapper that provides some specific features that it won't allow me to configure (see www.win.tue.nl/~rp/bin/rdesktop) + it is an Ubuntu package, so easy to install and maintain on my Ubuntu systems Things that bother me: + the UI is quite clunky: + too much clicking is required to create or modify configurations + too much clicking is required to start a session, there is no way to say 'just start whatever I choose to be the default' + it lacks support for many rdesktop options, e.g. drive sharing Things that would be really nice: + support for more rdesktop options, e.g. drive sharing + not having to create session configurations explicitly: instead, just having to configure hostnames, identities, resolutions etc. and then being able to pick any combination as a session + being able to set a default and opt to start the default immediately + a command line client for configuration + a command line client for starting a session based on the configuration + continued development - this appears to be abandonware, but it is really useful!
The best RDP client for Linux. My only complaint is that there's no keyword binding in the Ubuntu package, so it's hard to search for it via the launcher in Gnome-Shell, but that's probably more an issue with Ubuntu/Debian specific packaging. The thing that really shines is the excellent key bindings and copy/paste, which "just work". Pressing the "windows" key actually triggers the Windows start menu if you're remoting into a Windows machine, whereas most clients don't send presses for any "special" keys.
great app :)
usefull tool thx
Super fast on my old Pentium III 600 MHz laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. I wish there was a menu bar on top of the screen like most remote desktop programs though.
