Hi, can I ask you a question abount LTSP?
06:27
I've a LTSP server (Ubuntu-Mate 16.04.2 64b) with 25 fatclient. I need to disable many startup application via terminal. Do you know how?
06:27
<alkisg>
Of course
06:28
Example?
06:28
Which startup application do you want to disable?
06:28
<DavideTN>
for example tilda or screensaver
06:28
on fatclient
06:29
<alkisg>
How would you disable them if you had an ubuntu-mate computer that didn't have ltsp at all?
06:30
<DavideTN>
removing startup entries in /etc/xdg/autostart and in /home/user/.config/autostart
06:30
<alkisg>
Cool, that's where ltsp can help you with RM_SESSION_SERVICES
06:30
<DavideTN>
but in fatclient it doesn't work
06:30
<alkisg>
So, by putting RM_SESSION_SERVICES="tidla", ltsp would remove /etc/xdg/autostart/tidla.desktop
06:31
Or you could have RCFILE_01="rm -f /etc/xdg/autostart/tidla.desktop" instead, to specify that you want to delete that file on boot
06:31
Unfortunately tidla doesn't run from xdg
06:31
The mate devs decided to put it in /usr/share/mate/autostart/tilda.desktop :)
06:32
So, specifically about tidla, it's not an ltsp question but a "why ubuntu-mate put it there?!!" question
06:32
...which should be asked in #ubuntu-mate instead
06:32
<DavideTN>
Can I put RM_SESSION_SERVICES option in lts.conf?
06:32
<alkisg>
So specifically for tilda, and ltsp, you can put:
06:32
RCFILE_RM_TILDA="rm -f /usr/share/mate/autostart/tilda.desktop"
06:32
This will delete that file on boot, so it won't autostart
06:33
RM_SESSION_SERVICES runs fine for things in /etc/xdg/autostart
06:33
Tilda isn't there
06:33
<DavideTN>
ok, I try

<DavideTN>
Thanks
06:34
<alkisg>
np
07:08
<DavideTN>
It works! And I added RM_SESSION_SERVICES="mate-maximus orca onboard update-notifier blueman-applet mate-power-manager"
07:12
now I'm trying to prevent user from changing any desktop settings, but I think it's very difficult

DavideTN: in general i found that it's best to let users play as much as they want, and to reset settings either on login, or when the local admin wants to
07:15
E.g. via epoptes > execute command
07:15
!epoptes
