@AlphaJack thanks. It seems guacenc doesn't work with ffmpeg 4.4. I have to disable it. See

I have a problem in the build process:

Outstanding! It's installed and tested working 100%. Thanks for the super-fast turnaround, this was my first question/bug post on the Arch forums, very impressed :-)

@mbcooper thanks for reporting. I have merged a patch that fix the build issue, but I can't test if it's ok. Can you check it please?

Hi, I'm having trouble installing this: when it comes to install the rdp modules I get the following error:

CC libguac_client_rdp_la-rdp.lo rdp.c: In function ‘guac_rdp_handle_connection’: rdp.c:440:5: error: ‘VerifyCertificate’ is deprecated [-Werror=deprecated-declarations] 440 | rdp_inst->VerifyCertificate = rdp_freerdp_verify_certificate; | ^~~~~~~~ In file included from /usr/include/freerdp2/freerdp/api.h:23, from /usr/include/freerdp2/freerdp/freerdp.h:42, from beep.h:23, from rdp.c:21: /usr/include/freerdp2/freerdp/freerdp.h:368:47: note: declared here 368 | WINPR_DEPRECATED(ALIGN64 pVerifyCertificate VerifyCertificate); /**< (offset 51)

It installs fine if you don't have freerdp installed. Lots of searching turned up nothing useful, any help would be greatly appreciated.

@philx I'm using like you said. Start guacd and then all config goes to tomcat...

philx commented on 2020-10-01 14:21

I mean server config (as this is server package). The below documentation begins with server configuration.

maybe I got this wrong, and I just should follow "start guacd daemon and configure client in tomcat8". I'll try again tonight.

figue commented on 2020-09-30 16:10

Do you mean the config files for guacd? Or the client?

philx commented on 2020-09-30 06:16

where to find config files after install? /etc/guacamole is not created.

figue commented on 2020-08-09 19:15

@SwankyBarbecue4 a good point to start is the official docu:

Just start guacd daemon and configure your client in tomcat8.

I personally have several guacamole installations. But if you need something simple, without lots of users, you can use a simple configuration with a tomcat8 and in /usr/share/tomcat8/.guacamole/user-mapping.xml your RDP or VNC connection. In my case I have simple VNC connection to my localhost to share my screen:


    <!-- Per-user authentication and config information -->
    <authorize username="guest" password="mysecret">
        <param name="hostname">localhost</param>
        <param name="port">5900</param>
        <param name="read-only">true</param>
        <param name="color-depth">24</param>
        <param name="cursor">remote</param>
