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 1.8, which brings support for Virtualbox 4.3.
In this article I will show you how to install RemoteBox 1.8 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04 and Elementary OS 0.3 Isis.
Because it is available via the GetDeb Repository, installing RemoteBox 1.8 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add repository to your system and import the key, update the local repository index and install the remotebox package. Like this:
$ wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu trusty-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install remotebox
Optional, to remove RemoteBox, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove remotebox
