guacamole remote desktop
@fbartels I am seeing an issue with guacd it displays when you try to connect with SSH or RDP etc.
guacd: WARNING: Support for protocol "ssh" is not installed
Not sure what is going on but if you are willing and able to help I a fresh pair of eyes might be good!
also off topic, your live stream on Sunday was awesome!!

@ultraviolet hm.. the configure shows that ssh support should be enabled, though. But I must say that I am already at a loss at creating connections inside of guacamole.
Thanks for the praise on the stream.
@fbartels yup confused myself on that. It is not the most user friendly GUI but works quite well.
@ultraviolet Oh wow, this is awesome! I will take a look at your repo in a day or two and try to get the package published. What are the pending issues?
@girish there are a few pending issues like you can't connect to anything! So I need a bit more time to look into it. Will take any help from anyone as something is not building correctly inside the container.
I am kind of stuck and could use some collective help on this. guacd which does all the connections to SSH or RDP etc reports this:
uacd: INFO: Connection ID is "$77091946-4e22-473d-8ab9-2432f77afc71" guacd: WARNING: **Support for protocol "ssh" is not installed** guacd: DEBUG: Requesting termination of client... guacd: DEBUG: Client terminated successfully. guacd: INFO: Connection "$77091946-4e22-473d-8ab9-2432f77afc71" removed. guacd: INFO: Creating new client for protocol "ssh" guacd: INFO: Connection ID is "$8897ed6b-2667-46d5-a2f0-53e465eb7cc8" guacd: WARNING: **Support for protocol "ssh" is not installed** guacd: DEBUG: Requesting termination of client... guacd: DEBUG: Client terminated successfully. guacd: INFO: Connection "$8897ed6b-2667-46d5-a2f0-53e465eb7cc8" removed.
When the image is built I can see it knows it's there to install but really stuck. Is there anyone that could pull the repo and have a look if anyone has sometime?

I packaged guacamole a long time ago and have been using it ever sense but didn't publish it or suggest to publish it cause i was using the incubator release. feel free to take a look at my repo too if you would like a compare?
@doodlemania2 thanks I might have used it for the base of mine but will double check!
I'm taking a look now
Edit: I built the current repo mentioned by OP - My error is that WebSocket is not working properly.
odd never got that error was always the ssh module was not installed. Going to take a another shot it later.

Been using this a lot over the years - some insights from that:
- It's as fast as JumpDesktop or similar. If there are ever any speed issues they will be the VPN or network setup (we use pfSense).
- It's a god-send for managing and distributing RDC credentials and managing access permissions with a team, especially compared to sharing and re-sharing .rdp files or PrivateBin copy/paste/messaging any time addresses change.
- You can make a handy Electron WebApp for this (or anything) with https://webcatalogapp.com
- The easiest way to give ChromeOS users RDC.
- I like Paperspace for cheap Windows VMs but this is a bit lighter and faster for connecting to many VMs across multiple providers.

@plusone-nick For interest on that use-case, I've recently been playing with https://crisp.chat which includes co-browsing in the paid subscription, more appropriate to companies with a budget though.
This FOSS Chat App seems to include co-browsing though:
