I was not able to use Geppetto on an Ubuntu server using an X terminal : it was dramatically too slow ! But, using “No Machine” tecnologies like X2Go, it become usable …

On my Ubuntu 15.10 server, I installed both X2Go and Mate, and I installed X2Go client on my Windows 10 laptop as well.

I downloaded Geppetto 4.3.1 from Puppet Labs, and copied it to my Ubuntu virtual machine.

wou@ubuntu:~$ ls -l geppetto-linux.gtk.x86_64-4.3.1-R201501182354.zip
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wou wou 100354787 Mar 8 12:08 geppetto-linux.gtk.x86_64-4.3.1-R201501182354.zip

And uncompress this archive :

wou@ubuntu:~$ unzip geppetto-linux.gtk.x86_64-4.3.1-R201501182354.zip

I already have installed a Java runtime …

Thru an X2Go xterminal :










I can launch Geppetto :














Using git, clone a Puppet project as an example (here : “ntp”) :

wou@ubuntu:~$ git clone https://github.com/example42/puppet-ntp.git
