Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Hamachi is very useful for connecting to or more computers, over the internet, in a LAN network. I use it on Windows to play Age of Empires with friends, for example.
Haguichi is a graphical frontend for Hamachi 2, on Linux systems. Haguichi is open source so, there are no licence problems. The latest Haguichi 1.0.24, which has been recently released, coming with a few features and enhancements only. For information about this release, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Haguichi 1.0.24 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Since Hamachi is required, we have to install the Hamachi deb packages before we are able to install Haguichi.
How to install the latest version of Hamachi available on 32 bit Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems:

After the Hamachi package has been successfully installed, you have to log out and log back in, in order to be able to connect Haguichi to Hamachi 2.
Now, we can go further and install Haguichi 1.0.24. Because it is available via PPA, installing the latest version available of Haguichi on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy.
