I'm trying to install x2go on my test server following this: http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:installation:x2goserver (ubuntu)

The repo seems to add fine and gives details on how to use it and what you can install form the repo. But when i run apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsesion i get the following error:

E: unable to locate package x2goserver
E: unable to locate package x2goserver-xsession

Any Ideas?

After running the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:x2go/stable

Make sure to do:

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession -y

You missed the

apt-get update

before starting the installation.

If it is'nt the problem, check this link, it works for me on Debian Jessie.
