Installation & configuration notes for NoMachine Linux ARM packages

In this article you will find notes about NoMachine packages which we have made available for Linux ARM devices. Please select the appropriate subsection according to the version of ARM that you have.

IMPORTANT: Users of Raspberry Pi 2 and Pi 3 please read the article dedicated to these devices.

The packages are currently divided into three separate ARM versions: ARMv6, ARMv7 and ARMv8 (coming soon). Make sure you install the correct packages for the device that you are using (https://www.nomachine.com/download/linux&id=1). Due to the extensive range of Linux ARM devices available on the market and the numerous operating systems that can run on them, it is impossible for us to test our software on all the variations. We have therefore carried out our tests on those that are the most popular among NoMachine users so far.

The packages are in Alpha status. This means that some features might be limited or might not be 100% bug free. We invite you to contact us with your feedback if you have issues, so that we can investigate thoroughly.
