Splashtop Business for linux

Hi Guys

We badly need splashtop business for linux, I admin most of my clients from linux using a mixture of VNC and splashtop. If there was business for linux I could do away with VNC altogether.

  • I subscribe to the Business version of Splashtop and I would find it helpful to support Linux systems from a Windows or Linux environment. My main system is windows but I have Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop and would find it helpful to remote support from the Ubuntu 14.04 based Laptop.

    I've found many old but still useful systems can be deployed for customers who need to get off the Expired XP platform. I usually install Peppermint Linux which has proven to be a very good light weight distro based on the LTS version of Ubuntu 14.04.

    Having a streamer for 14.04 would be helpful and even more so if I'm sitting at my Linux workstation and could remote support windows and Linux systems.

    I'm  a small time one man show and Splashtop has greatly helped.

    Thanks

  • We desperately need a linux client.

    I somehow got lucky and had the Windows Splashtop client running in Wine on Ubuntu 12.04.  I upgraded to 14.04 a few days ago and now it no longer works.  I'm a few hours into playing with Wine and still no luck.  I think I'm screwed and don't know what I'm going to do.  :-(

  • Please, make a Business Linux Client!! It's not far from what you already have, as the actual Personal Linux client works very well!

  • My company is moving to Linux servers and thus has started providing IT staff with Linux laptops.  They do not understand why Splashtop does not offer a native Linux client for business (or personal).  We have heavily relied on remote control software over the years - beginning with PC Anywhere, then RAdmin, to TightVNC, LogMeIn, and a very brief time with TeamViewer, and now with Splashtop.  Over the years, the client applications became slow and bloated or the proce got too high.  We have been very happy with splashtop windows, but now may be force to switch to NoMachine NX.  The fact that there was a client for Ubuntu Linux 12.04 only makes the position you've taken even more frustrating.

  • @Bwdavis & all,

    We suggest that you could use Chrome app on your Linux platform for now, it will work. (It might not work with Chromium.)

  • The suggested Chrome App is unreliable. I've been dealing with many problems with it. Sometimes speed is very bad (normal on Windows client), sometimes specific UI elements becomes unclickable. Waiting my 1 year subscription to end and them migrate to other service.

  • I've tried the chrome app and it asks for password but it doesnt get connected, I just renewed my year subscription and its going to be my last.

  • @Info,

    It is the Windows log-in password or the Chrome app log-in password? Could I have a screenshot of the window and the error so I could have more clues address the issue? Thank you.

  • I just signed up for the trial to see if this will work for us.  We use linux laptops and connect to Windows servers.

    The chrome app works but it is sooooo slow.  Unusable really.  Windows client is fast.  And it fails in virtualbox due to missing 3D.

    Is there anything we can tweak or is this product a no go for linux support admins?

  • @Mwhite, I wasn't able at all to make this work fine to access Windows Server machines from Linux, which I also use as primary desktop. Had always the same issue, very slow work, unusable. I quit trying to use Splashtop after a year of subscription and lots of trouble, gone to TeamViewer integrated into GFI Max Focus RMM solution.

  • @Tech,

    As far as I know, there is no plan having an official Linux streamer in short term.

    There is a beta version one: http://www.splashtop.com/linux#download

  • Will that work for Splashtop Business as well?

  • @Tech,

    You are able to connect to it using Splashtop Business app, but you can't use the deployment code to log in the Linux streamer, only your Splashtop account. Since we did not update it for some time, it might lack some functions.

    Look into SimpleHelp, we switched to it a while ago.

  • 4 years later and no plans for linux.  Thank you Bruce for the recommendation of simple-help  I will definitely be checking them out.   Looks like it could be better than Splashtop, too.

  • 5 years later ... still no splashtop business for linux ... :(

    SimpleHelp is no solution for me: It's yearly-subscription-based and expensive too. Rather use RealVNC then
