Install rdesktop 1.8.2 on Ubuntu 14.04

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
$ 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
* step2 – and install the downloaded package.
