Hi all! Can someone help? many time all was ok, but now epoptes server see clients (booted after server only), but no vpn connect (terminal is connecting)
00:45
(epoptes site links to this channel)
00:45eu^client-pool-9 is now known as ShivShanrakDAs
00:48
<vagrantc>
yes, it does...
00:48
you may have to wait a while to get a response in irc
00:50
ShivShanrakDAs: have you tried the obvious things like restarting epoptes?
00:50
ShivShanrakDAs: what distro and release are you running? epoptes versions?
00:55
<ShivShanrakDAs>
<vagrantc> debian 9 server, Epoptes 0.5.10
00:56
<vagrantc>
ah, this is my area, then :)
00:56
ShivShanrakDAs: try installing ssvnc on both the clients and server
00:56
ShivShanrakDAs: the vnc client preferred by epoptes was replaced by a different one that has some minor incompatibilties
00:57
<ShivShanrakDAs>
oops..minimum one client is 0.5.7-1...tried reboot client many times
00:57
<vagrantc>
fixed in epoptes 0.5.10-2 just uploaded to debian today
00:57
well, hopefully fixed
00:58
xvnc4client was replaced by tigervnc-client, which needed some fixes to get tigervnc working ok
00:58
ssvnc should work
00:59
as for your older version, upgrade them to a recent version of epoptes :)
00:59
if you're running jessie (debian 8) on some machines, there's jessie-backports with a newer version
00:59
gotta run right now, good luck!

<alkisg>
boj_: ltsp doesn't have a maintainer for centos, so it would be better to use .deb based distros like debian or ubuntu
05:58
!ltsp-pnp
05:58
<ltsp`>
ltsp-pnp: ltsp-pnp is an alternative (upstream) method to maintain LTSP installations for thin and fat clients that doesn't involve chroots: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp
05:58
<alkisg>
This is a good how-to that also contains a download link for ubuntu-mate
06:14
<boj_>
Thanks alkisg

hi alkisg
06:23
<alkisg>
Hello kidar
06:23
<kidar>
any advise for setting up my training schoold
06:24
<alkisg>
What is the problem, specifically?
06:25
<kidar>
i am in the process of obtaing equipment so wanted to know what you suggest in getting for 20 terminals, interactive whiteboard, server etc
06:26
<alkisg>
Use google translate on this: http://blogs.sch.gr/plinetio/specifications
06:31
<kidar>
i was thinking of getting thin clients that i can mount on the back of the screens to boot up from the network
06:31
<alkisg>
kidar: it's best that they are fat clients, even if they are small and fitted at the back of the screens
06:31
<kidar>
what software would you suggest, ubuntu mate, ubuntu, or edubuntu
06:31
<alkisg>
!cheap-client
06:32
Edubuntu no longer exists
06:32
So it's between ubuntu and ubuntu-mate (or other flavors)
06:32
I'm using ubuntu-mate myself, because it's lighter and doesn't have keyboard issues
06:32
<kidar>
fat client meaning that it will have hard drive and will have the os on it?
06:33
<alkisg>
No
06:33
They will have enough cpu/ram to run the os locally, but they will still be diskless and netbooted
06:33
It's the new method of running ltsp
06:33
(for 5 years now or so...)

r u using any particular smart screen
06:36

06:36
<alkisg>
No, we're using epoptes to project the teacher screen
06:36
!epoptes
06:36
<ltsp`>
epoptes: Epoptes is a computer lab administration and monitoring tool. It works on Ubuntu and Debian based labs with LTSP or non-LTSP servers, thin and fat clients, standalone workstations, NX clients etc. More info: http://www.epoptes.org
06:36
<alkisg>
The instructions for that are included in the ltsp-pnp wiki page
06:37
<kidar>
regarding the manuals for training do you have any that we could use.
06:40
<alkisg>
The wiki is there: http://wiki.ltsp.org/
06:41
In Greece we're using a separate wiki, but I don't think it'll be easy to use it... http://ts.sch.gr/wiki/Linux/LTSP
