An SSH daemon has to be running. If that already is the case,
you can skip this step. You can run the SSH daemon like this in
# /etc/init.d/sshd start
Now you are able install and run ajaxWM like this:
$ wget "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ajaxwm/ajaxwm-0.2.6.tar.gz"
$ tar xfz ajaxwm-0.2.6.tar.gz
$ cd ajaxwm-0.2.6/src
$ firefox localhost:8022
You can now login to your local pc using the firefox (or
whatever browser you are using) window, which just showed up.
If your login doesn't work, have a look at your SSHd config.
When you are logged in, you can create new windows by pressing
CTRL + ALT + W and close them with a CTRL + ALT + C.
When everything is running locally you probably want to make
ajaxWM accessible on some network
(like the internet). In order to do this you have to setup a
web server (locally), which proxies incoming HTTPS-connections
to ajaxWM and vice versa. If you
don't have an SSL certificate you have to create one first:
# openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem \
# chmod 600 /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
You can create a htpasswd file for Apache to secure the access
with a username and password:
# htpasswd2 -c /etc/apache2/htpasswd bob
Here is an exemplary apache configuration you can use to proxy
AuthName "remote Shell Access"
Require user tom
Allow from all
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8022/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8022/
Now after restarting Apache ajaxWM should be reachable on the
