In this tutorial, we will show you how to install NoMachine on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, NoMachine is a cross-platform remote desktop software that allows you to access and control your computer from anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. It provides a secure and high-performance remote desktop experience, making it an ideal choice for professionals, developers, and power users who need to access their systems remotely.

One of the key advantages of NoMachine is its ability to deliver a seamless and responsive remote desktop experience, even over low-bandwidth connections. It achieves this by leveraging advanced compression and caching techniques, ensuring that your remote sessions are smooth and lag-free.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the NoMachine on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.

  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for NoMachine.
