[Request] Apache's Guacamole

I would like to request a container for Apache’s Guacamole. There do exist some container options already including an official option, however the official option requires running 3 different containers. I’m looking for an all in one that supports the PUID and PGID env vars that other linuxserver containers use.

We do have one, but it’s meant to be a base image for gui apps. You can check it out if you want.

Sorry, forgot to mention that I’ve already played with that. I had a slightly different use-case in mind. I was hoping to have just the guacamole web service so I could use it to access my VMs in my home lab. I wouldn’t be running any applications from the docker container itself.

Update: Is there a base image that I could possibly extend to build my own from? Something like the sabnzbd, deluge, or nextcloud containers? I like the linuxserver philosophy and would like to mirror that functionality.

There is one with all required software. It’s oznu/guacamole.

Works but of course would like one made by linuxserver so much more. Their methodology is better without any doubt.

Yes, I have tried that one as well. Unfortunately it doesn’t work for me. I just get constant error messages about the config directory not being owned by the correct user. The guac service never actually starts. This is why I really love the PGID and PUID functionality of linuxserver containers! Does docker inherently have this functionality? Maybe I’m just overlooking an easy solution? I suppose I could create my own container off of oznu’s and just modify the uid/gid of the default user?

That’s why linuxserver is better always. Their method is great.
What I did to use it is either, use a volume directly configured via docker or mount the /config directory in the container to another folder in the system. In this case I made a /docker directory on the root and put all my docker containers data there by directory name (even linuxserver containers). I have no permission issues doing it this way. Always using my PUID:1000 and PGID:100 when it is a linuxserver container of course.

I made oznu/guacamole work with this config (what I currently use under Openmediavault/debian):

version: "2"

image: oznu/guacamole
container_name: guacamole
restart: unless-stopped
  - :8080
  - /docker/guacamole:/config

Previously was having the same issue as you when using a shared folder, configured under Openmediavault, to host all my containers’ data.

Agreed on this request. The official Dockers require 3 different containers to work and I’ve tried the other top 3-4 containers, they all have their own issues and don’t work perfectly (all coming down to PUID/GUID issues) and I tried lots of chown-ing inside and outside of the directories.

If you are all looking for an RDP/VNC client on your network try Taisun:

We make a guacd container to support ARM and we do a developer base image to embedd gui apps.
This is likely the extent we will automate a Guacamole setup.

There is now a baseimage based on Guacamole stack located here:

You can take it for a test drive with:

docker run --rm -it -p 8080:8080 lsiobase/rdesktop-web:bionic-java bash

By default it runs xterm but you can swap out the GUI app you want it to run in the autostart file , you can also install an alternative gui if need be like these containers:

As far as making something to connect to remote clients, that is not this image, just thought I would update this with the new baseimage info if others are looking
