How to setup ubuntu linux client

Recommended Posts

Yes you can.. but out the box Retrospect doesn't support .deb based linux.


You need to convert the linux installer to a deb.


Drop me a PM with your email address and I'll send my copy which works fine on Ubuntu.


Alternatively, there's a how-to in the suggestions area I think..

Right, I've just uploaded it some a random online hosting account:




Simply copy to your ubuntu server (tmp folder is fine) and run the command:


sudo dpkg -i retroclient_7.6.100-2_i386.deb


It'll ask for the connection password - job done.


To stop and start the services you can use the following command:


sudo /etc/init.d/rcl stop

sudo /etc/init.d/rcl start


*******@edgeubuntusvr04:/etc/init.d$ ./rcl status

Server "Ubuntu Server 4":

Version 7.6.100

back up according to normal schedule

currently on

readonly is off

exclude is off

0 connections, 0 authenticated



Hopefully this helps someone. Admins, feel free to add this to your downloads page, it'll help a LOAD of people.
