Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, RemoteBox is a nice app that enables the users to administer the installation of a Virtualbox on a remote machine, as it was a local installation. It also works well with the Xen, KVM or VMware ESX virtualization software. The latest version available is RemoteBox 1.5.
In this article I will show you how to install RemoteBox 1.5 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail and Linux Mint 15 Olivia.
Because it is available via the GetDeb repository, installing RemoteBox 1.5 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint is easy. All you have to do is:
Download the repository key and add it to your system:
$ wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
Add the GetDeb repository:
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu raring-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
Update the local repository index:

Install RemoteBox 1.5
