It is also very important to mention that you will need to download and install the Hamachi client before installing this software on your Linux box. Be aware that Hamachi is now know as LogMeIn.
Officially supported Linux distributions include Ubuntu, Arch Linux, openSUSE, Linux Mint, elementary OS, Fedora, and Debian GNU/Linux, for which the developers offer binary installers. A source archive is also available for download, allowing experienced users to configure, compile and install the application under any Linux-based operating system.
In conclusion, Haguichi is a very good graphical user interface for the Hamachi service. It supports a multitude of distributions and desktop environments, and it’s probably the only one that can offer a modern Hamachi client on GNU/Linux.
