winflector install on turnkey core

I am attempting to turn an appliance into a RDP server. Using the below commands I seem to be able to accomplish this (modified version of steps from:

My issue is that I would like to install the winflector client ( but cannot figure out how to make it work on tkl.  The system requirements specify "
Linux x86 32-bit (incl. Ubuntu), GTK 2.12+, X11R6+
(for example Ubuntu 7.10, Fedora 10, Debian 5.0, CentOS 6.0,
OpenSuSE 10.3, SuSE 11.0, Linux Mint 4.0 or newer)
I had installed lxde and wicd-gtk already so I continued the installation to the best of my ability but when I run the command that is supposed to start the winflector client app (wfc) I only get "-bash: wfc: command not found". 

My end goal is to have an internet accessible RDP server which allows our windows users to access this servers desktop and present them with the ability to start either a winflector stream or an rdesktop session to another LAN machine.  The winflector client will connect to an already running winflector server instance which is displaying a security application on another machine.

To install TKL I performed the following:
installed turnkey core 12.0
apt-get update
apt-get install lxde xrdp tightvncserver gksu xorg wicd-gtk rdesktop

Thanks in advance for any help or insight!

And I just wrote a really long post suggesting a few different ways to try to find where 'wfc' is (then you'll be able to run it using the full path.. e.g. /usr/bin/wfc) but I decided that was probably a bit convaluted and hard to follow, so:

Probably just searching and/or asking on the WinFlecter forums/mailing list (assuming that they have one) is possibly the easiest way to go... TKL v12.x is based on Debian 6/Squeeze...

Otherwise you could try searching for it with the 'find' command. Here is one tutorial: (or google has plenty more)

Thanks for your reply.

I apologize, I should have mentioned that I know the location of and can see the 'wfc' file and confirmed that it was indeed executable... I just cannot execute it for some strange reason.

Ah ha!

Had to type ./wfc to run the application.


This winflector is an interesting program for those who have windows applications running on a windows box that you want to share the application only (not the entire desktop).
