How to install Remotix Agent on Linux

Installing from a repository

DEB and RPM packages can be installed from our repository. For a guide on installation, check linux.remotix.com.

Installing from a package

We provide different types of Remotix for Linux installation packages to ease the process of installing.

Installing Remotix Agent to a Debian-Based Distribution

There is a .deb self-installing package for Ubuntu, Debian and other Debian-based Linux distributions. To get one, go to Remotix Agent for Linux (.deb) download page. Once downloaded, open the package to install it; or open console and execute this:
sudo dpkg -i <package path>.

When installed, Remotix Agent will appear in the Start menu and become available from the console by remotixagent --gui command.

Installing Remotix QC to an RPM-Based Distribution

We also made a package for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora and CentOS distributions. To get one, go to Remotix Agent for Linux (.rpm) download page. Once downloaded, open console and execute this:
sudo rpm -i <package path>.

When installed, Remotix Agent will appear in the Start menu and become available from console by remotixagent --gui command.

Installing Remotix Agent to Raspbian

There is also a separate package for Raspberry Pi-based systems. Currently, the Agent runs smoothly on Raspberry Pi 3 and 4 with Raspbian Buster. To get an installation package, go to Remotix Agent for Raspberry download page. Once downloaded, open the package to install it; or open console and execute this:
sudo dpkg -i <package path>.

When installed, Remotix Agent will appear in the Start menu and become available from the console by remotixagent --gui command.

Installing Remotix Agent to Azure SLES

(or other Linux that has no graphical desktop environment installed)

To get Remotix Agent running on the SLES VM in Azure, install the Remotix Agent itself (.rpm package) and then the graphical desktop environment:

sudo zypper install gnome-desktop gdm

After that, run remotixagent --info to get computer ID and access code being logged in over SSH.

Using these ID and code, you will be able to connect with Remotix (to GDM login screen first, and then to Gnome desktop environment once you log in).

Troubleshooting

If Remotix Agent fails to start with an error 'Failed to connect to daemon in time', run this command: sudo service remotixagent start or reboot your machine.
