I am looking for no machine version 3.5 for Ubuntu 14.10 64 bit.

I did install v4 before and it's not stable and watching videos is a little bit slow. I read that 3.5 is better and is there a solution to play sound in the vpsremote desktop because it doesn't play sounds.

I found this code but don't understand how it works:

MAJOR_PV="$(get_version_component_range 1-3)"
FULL_PV="${MAJOR_PV}-$(get_version_component_range 4)"
DESCRIPTION="Free edition NX server from NoMachine"
SRC_URI="amd64? (${MAJOR_PV}/Linux/FE/nxserver-${FULL_PV}.x86_64.tar.gz )
    x86? (${MAJOR_PV}/Linux/FE/nxserver-${FULL_PV}.i386.tar.gz )"

As stated on NoMachine website version 3 it is no longer officialy provided and they link to some open source alternatives (FreeNX, NeatX, X2Go, 2X and Xpra).

If you really want 3.5, you can download it from Web Archive - choose DEB packages for Ubuntu. There are installation instructions under links, and here - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NomachineNX

Keep in mind that 3.5 version is no longer supported and can contain security vulnerabilities.

  • There seem to be missing nxnode and nxserver for 64bit systems. You could try downloading 32bit and running with ia32-libs. But keep in mind that 3.5 version is no longer supported and can contain security vulnerabilities - but there are some open source alternatives like: FreeNX, NeatX, X2Go, 2X and Xpra. – Marqin Mar 6 '15 at 19:00
