Open Source VirtualBox Client with Remote Management

Installing on Debian or Ubuntu

These instructions describe installing the RemoteBox client and assume you have root privileges. VirtualBox must also be installed on the server and configured to accept connections from RemoteBox. Instructions for installing VirtualBox and configuring it as a service can be found in the RemoteBox manual.
Tarball Install
Ensure the required dependencies are installed as follows:

        apt-get install libgtk2-perl libsoap-lite-perl freerdp-x11 tigervnc-viewer
        
To launch RemoteBox, unpack the RemoteBox tarball and run the 'remotebox' executable.
Ubuntu Unity Desktop
Menu handling is buggy under Ubuntu with the Unity desktop. This causes issues such as menu items being ghosted incorrectly which allows they to be activated inappropriately. This is not a bug with RemoteBox, but the Unity Desktop. The issue does not present itself under other desktop environments. Recent editions of Ubuntu no longer use the Unity Desktop by default.
