These are instructions for people or software developers who want to contribute to the latest version of Remmina on Ubuntu 14.04.
If you are an end user and you want to install the latest version of remmina, please use the "Remmina Team Ubuntu PPA - next branch", as explained on the homepage of the wiki.
By following these instructions, you will get Remmina and FreeRDP compiled under the /opt/remmina_devel/ subdir, so they will not mess up your system too much. This is ideal for testing remmina.
You will also find the uninstall instructions at the bottom of this page.
