For some reason, this package hasn’t yet arrived to Ubuntu’s repositories, but if you are hardcore everyday rdesktop-user, you know, that 1.7 doesn’t play well with newer windows servers. So, I took steps.
$ sudo apt-get install libgssglue1 $ wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/r/rdesktop/rdesktop_1.8.2-1_amd64.deb $ sudo dpkg -i rdesktop_1.8.2-1_amd64.deb $
* step1 – I didn’t have libgssglue1 package installed, but rdesktop 1.8 needs it, so I installed it. Also, if you have some other dependencies missing, install it. dpkg will tell about it.
* step2 – url for package I installed. If you have some other archidecture, you can find your package here https://packages.debian.org/sid/rdesktop
* step2 – and install the downloaded package.
