Dear all,

== Summary ==

we got informed by John McMonagle [1] about wrong package versions in the Debian archive of X2Go. Unfortunately, I only grasped the severity of that bug report a couple of days back.

In February 2014, a development snapshot of x2goserver* packages found their way into the Debian-based package archive of X2Go Baikal LTS [2].

This is of course a severe issue and after cross-checking last Monday, I reverted those uploads and provided the correct package versions (X2Go Server No other area of the package archive was affected, only the Baikal LTS packages of X2Go Server for Debian.

== How to downgrade ==

Follow these steps for downgrading the development snapshot ( to the current Baikal LTS release of X2Go Server (

Open a terminal and run these commands...

  $ apt-get update
  $ apt-cache show x2goserver

  ### you should see two version of package x2goserver
### x2goserver<something> (which is the currently installed version)
  ### and
  ### x2goserver<debversion>.baikal.1

  $ cp /etc/x2go/x2goserver.conf /etc/x2go/x2goserver.conf.bak
$ apt-get remove --purge x2goserver-common libx2go-server-perl libx2go-log-perl $ apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession x2goserver-printing x2goserver-fmbindings
  $ cp /etc/x2go/x2goserver.conf.bak /etc/x2go/x2goserver.conf

  ### You may want to view changes between the two config files...
  $ diff -ur /etc/x2go/x2goserver.conf.bak /etc/x2go/x2goserver.conf
  # and manually edit the one now installed as x2goserver.conf

I am very sorry that this happened, it should not have!!! If you need further help, please contact either me or any other of the devs via our mailing list x2go-user [3] or via IRC [4].
