This is a guide on how to connect to skrivebord.uib.no using the software '''rdesktop''' on a Linux-computer.
 
The software can be downloaded from [[Ubuntu Software centre]], search for "rdesktop". You can also install the software from terminal using the following command: sudo apt-get install rdesktop
 
  
Start rdesktop by opening Terminal and run:

Employees, and students with access to SAFE, can connect to skrivebord.uib.no.
  rdesktop -d uib -k no skrivebord.uib.no
 
  
=Arguments=

==Command line tool==
Rdesktop works with several arguments. The most important are described below. See rdesktop(1) for full description. In terminal, run:

You can, for instance, use '''xfreerdp''' to connect to skrivebord.uib.no from Linux.  
    man rdesktop
 
  
==Username and domain==
+
===Installing xfreerdp===
Skrivebord.uib.no sets "HEL" as standard domain. You must choose "Other user" and type "UIB\<yourusername>" to login.
 
Alternatively you can add the domain in the command:
 
    rdesktop -d uib skrivebord.uib.no
 
  
Rdesktop assumes you are using the same username on you machine as on skrivebord.uib.no. If this is not the case, you can set the username in the commandline with the argument "-u yourusername", like this:  
+
Use Terminal and the following command:  
   rdesktop -d uib -u abc123 skrivebord.uib.no
+
   sudo apt-get install xfreerdp-x11
  
Remember to switch abc123 with your username.
+
===Using xfreerdp===
 +
Start xfreerdp by opening Terminal and running this command:
 +
  xfreerdp /u:[your username here] /v:skrivebord.uib.no
  
==Keyboard==
+
'''NB! Unfortunately rdesktop can no longer be used when conencting to skrivebord.uib.no.'''
Standard keyboard in rdesktop is American. If you have a Norwegian keyboard you can set the change in rdesktop using the argument "-k no", like this:
 
  rdesktop -k no skrivebord.uib.no
 
  
==rdesktop-window size==
+
==Connection tool with GUI==
To set a specific size for the rdesktop-window use argument "-g <size of the window, length x height>", like this:
+
There are also options available for those who prefer a GUI. For example '''Remmina'''.
  rdesktop -g 1024x768 skrivebord.uib.no
 
  
You can also use %
+
===Installing Remmina===
  rdesktop -g 90% skrivebord.uib.no
 
Setting the size in percentage works best if you only have one screen. If you use two screens, rdesktop will treat it as one extra large screen instead.
 
  
Rdesktop full screen: -f
+
Use Terminal and the following command:
   rdesktop -f skrivebord.uib.no
+
   sudo apt-get install remmina
Using this command, rdesktop will cover both screens if using two. Use the key combination Ctrl+Alt+Enter to switch between Linux- and Windows environment.

You can also use Ubuntu Software Center. Please make sure you do '''not''' choose the Snap package.
