10:13
<vagrantc>
staffencasa: yes, actually. there's at least two cafes here in town here (portland, oregon, usa) running ltsp kiosks
10:13
although i don't think they used the kiosk plugin.
10:14* vagrantc has been meaning to clean up the kiosk plugin code for a while now
10:17Envit1 has quit IRC
10:21
<staffencasa>
I'm trying to run a bunch of them and just started playing with ltsp. I work at OSU (in your neck of the woods) and we want to use ltsp for our web kiosks in the dorms.
10:22muh2000 has quit IRC
10:22
<staffencasa>
I tried the ltsp-build-client --kiosk with a plugin I found, but it's not working
10:22
<vagrantc>
staffencasa: this is on ubuntu ?
10:22
<staffencasa>
edubuntu
10:22
yeah
10:22gypsymauro has joined #ltsp
10:22
<staffencasa>
what do you suggest?
10:22
<gypsymauro>
hi
10:23
<vagrantc>
staffencasa: well, first off ... elaborate on "not working" :)
10:23
<gypsymauro>
I've installed ltsp on ubuntu now I want the clients to mount usb pens..there is an howto?
10:23
<vagrantc>
!ubuntu
10:23
<ltspbot>
vagrantc: "ubuntu" is a Debian based GNU/Linux distrubution that includes a Ubuntu specific version of LTSP. It can be found at http://www.ubuntulinux.org. to install ltsp on ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall
10:24
<vagrantc>
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EnableLTSP5LocalDevices
10:24
!localdev
10:24
<ltspbot>
vagrantc: "localdev" is (#1) Information regarding using pluggable devices and cdroms with LTSP can be found at http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LTSP-42-LocalDev, or (#2) for ubuntu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EnableLTSP5LocalDevices, or (#3) for debian-edu: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/LocalDeviceLtspfs
10:24
<staffencasa>
I created the plugin, put it in the right directory, then when I run, it says 'etc/ltsp/plugins/ltsp-build-client/30-kiosk: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token 'in
10:25
want me to paste a link to the plugin?
10:25
<vagrantc>
staffencasa: where did you put it, and please paste your code to the pastebot
10:25
!pastebot
10:25
<ltspbot>
vagrantc: "pastebot" is The LTSP pastebot is at http://pastebot.ltsp.org. Please paste all text longer than a line or two to the pastebot, as it helps to reduce traffic in the channel. A link to the content will be pasted in the channel.

10:26
<vagrantc>
ah, i can infer the location from your error :)
10:28
<ltsppbot>
"staffencasa" pasted "Kiosk Plugin" (46 lines) at http://pastebot.ltsp.org/240
10:28
<staffencasa>
I'm sure it's something stupid I'm not doing
10:29
or did wrong
10:29
<vagrantc>
staffencasa: so, why aren't you using the plugin included with ubuntu ?
10:30
<staffencasa>
I didn't see one. Maybe I just don't know where to look. Edubuntu has a few versions and I think the one I'm using doesn't have ltsp built in
10:30
<vagrantc>
which version of edubuntu ?
10:30
<staffencasa>
6.10
10:31
not classroom
10:31
<vagrantc>
edubuntu server 6.10 definitely includes LTSP
10:31
automatically.
10:31
not sure about when the kiosk plugin was introduced ...
10:31
<staffencasa>
it's not server, it's desktop. Should I use it instead?
10:32
<vagrantc>
so there's no /usr/share/ltsp/plugins/ltsp-build-client/Ubuntu/30-kiosk ?
10:33* vagrantc wonders why someone would use 6.10 when 7.4 is out
10:33
<staffencasa>
7.4 doesn't work on the machines I'm using. I can fix that too, though. This is just a test to see if it will be a good choice for us.
10:34
<vagrantc>
staffencasa: at any rate, your plugin looks fine ... how are you trying to run it ?
10:34
<staffencasa>
no that file isn't there
10:34
I can put it there and try again
10:34
my command is "sudo ltsp-build-client --kiosk --base /opt/ltsp-kiosk/
10:34
<vagrantc>
if you're using a custom plugin, put it in /etc
10:35
hmmmm
10:35
you know, i'm not sure edgy's plugin system works right.
10:36
<staffencasa>
it's in /etc/ltsp/plugins/ltsp-build-client/
10:36
<vagrantc>
edgy was released not long after we designed the plugins system, and there were a few bugs in it at the beginning
10:36
<staffencasa>
should it be /etc/ltsp/plugins/ltsp-build-client/ubuntu/?
10:36
<vagrantc>
no
10:37
if at all possible, use 7.4
10:37
<staffencasa>
desktop or server? or does it matter?
10:38
<vagrantc>
the server will automatically install a "normal" LTSP environment, i think...
10:39
<staffencasa>
k, I'll try that. Thanks for your help
10:39
<vagrantc>
and if you use --base to specify a different directory when building your kiosk, that ought to work.
10:39
<staffencasa>
Yeah, I found someone's doc about that and just copied it
10:40
<vagrantc>
but your error is very strange... i don't know edgy well enough to troubleshoot it.

can someone give a help? i'm trying to mount usbdrive's! i already made the modifications that are in the wiki pages, but client's don't mount the usbstick's yet! i'm using debian etch and on the boot i'm doing rdesktop to a windows 2003 server... my version of ltsp is 4.2!

10:55
<Gadi>
if you set SCREEN_01= shell and drop into a shell and plug the device in, does it appear in /tmp/drives and /Drives ?
10:57
<avlis>
nop, only if a plug it in to server!
10:58
<Gadi>
then, you have general local device problems
10:58
not specific to rdp
10:58
can you pastebot your lts.conf?

ok
11:08
don't mix and match LTSP 4.2 (ltsp-utils) and LTSP 5 (ltsp-server)

I updated my Fedora server and now my accounts can login to the server itself, but none of the remote machines. The remote machines DO get a login screen. Some kind of authentication issue with kde .. any tips on where to look?
12:46
<zodman>
bjohnson: the xdmcp can be disable when update.
12:46
checck your xdmcp configuration's
12:47
<bjohnson>
kdmrc has: # Whether KDM should listen to XDMCP requests. Default is true.
12:47
#Enable=false
12:47
but I'll add Enable=ture just to be sure
12:48fgiraldeau has joined #ltsp
12:48
<bjohnson>
or Enable=true
12:48
my understanding is that the remote stations wouldn't even get a login with XDMCP enabled
12:48
ahh
12:48
I mean "without" XDMCP enabled
12:55
<sbalneav>
bjohnson: If you're talking ltsp4.2, then yes.
12:56
With ltsp5, we have our own display manager now that runs on the client, and doesn't use xdmcp

13:13

13:13
<sbalneav>
It's a beautiful thing :)
13:13
<Gadi>
every time I speak in public, I tell people that with gutsy ltsp5 hits real prime time
13:13
:)
13:14
<sbalneav>
So, if you just HAPPEN to be sitting around, you know, with NOTHING BETTER to do with your time, as I'm sure happens all the time in your life, merge to my scotts_gutsy tree, and give 'er a go.
13:14
I also added the rdesktop script the fellow the other day posted, so it's in my tree.
13:14
<Gadi>
you bet - thanks for the heads up
13:15

13:33kaminski-ltsp-br has joined #ltsp
13:33
<bjohnson>
still the same problem with logins on remote machines. XDMCP is definitely running on the server (confirmed with netstat)
13:33
any other ideas
13:33
?
13:36
<Gadi>
bjohnson: did you do the autologin.sh| script?
13:37
<bjohnson>
no. I don't need guest accounts
13:37
just normal users, each with their own account
13:37
<Gadi>
doesnt matter
13:37
<bjohnson>
maybe I didn't understand
13:37
<Gadi>
you need to map the IP address of the workstation (or hostname) to user
13:37
thats why you need a script
13:37
<bjohnson>
I can't have roaming users anymore?
13:38
<Gadi>
not with autologin
13:38
how does gdm know who to log in where?
13:38
<bjohnson>
I don't need autologin
13:38
I just need to be able to longin
13:38
<Gadi>
oh, you cant login at all?
13:38
<bjohnson>
correct
13:38
<Gadi>
i thought you needed autologin
13:38
what happens when you log in?
13:39
<bjohnson>
I get the login screen, and it works normally on the server (I use the server as my workstation)
13:39
<Gadi>
it boots you back to login screen?
13:39
<bjohnson>
I've tested other accounts on the server and they work too
13:40
on ALL remotae machines (that worked fine for months up till yesterday when I upgraded my FC6), they get the login screen, but it bounces back to the login screen without any messages
13:40
the kde startup dialog box doesn't appear like normal either
13:40
obviously some kind of authentication issue related to kde/kdm .. but I can't find it
13:40
<Gadi>
hmm... and, have you restarted gdm?
13:40
ah, you're using kdm
13:41
have you checked the user's .xsession-errors file?
13:41
<bjohnson>
user accounts are stored in ldap on another server .. so being able to login on the ltsp server shows that the ldap connection is still working
13:42
yes I've looked at the .xsession-errors file but I don't really know what I'm looking for
13:43
I could post one somewhere .. the first line is: Couldn't establish a connection to :9202: IO::Socket::INET: Bad hostname ':9202'

do you use xfs?

13:46
grep XFS /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf
13:47
<bjohnson>
USE_XFS = Y
13:48
I've restarted xfs and have confirmed that it is running
13:52
yeah. I'm stumped too
13:54
<sbalneav>
bjohnson: What's the server?
13:54
Maybe you don't need to be using xfs
13:54
<bjohnson>
Fedora Core 6 .. been working for months
13:55
<sbalneav>
Oh, man. Don't use XFS
13:55
that's new enough to have xrender.
13:56
xrender will do all the stuff that xfs used to do, without all the hinky that xfs was famous for.
13:56
Try just doing XFS = N
13:57
<bjohnson>
I think the problem is: X Error of failed request: BadPixmap (invalid Pixmap parameter)
13:57
I don't know what that means but it doesn't happen when they log in to the server directly
13:57
the other lines are still there when they login directly on the server
13:58plameng1 has quit IRC

13:58
<BlackDark>
hi
13:58
<bjohnson>
they can log in via kde/kdm on the server, but not on any remote machines
13:58
<sbalneav>
Gadi: Should, if they're in the font path.
13:59
<BlackDark>
I'm on the point to buy 2 of these terminals http://www.disklessworkstations.com/cgi-bin/web/info/ltsp_t1220.html?id=BPKyeU3z
13:59
<sbalneav>
Now, does the login just FAIL, or do they get a no such user error message, or...?
13:59
<Gadi>
sbalneav: the chroot's font path
13:59
no?
13:59
<BlackDark>
but some folks told me the video chipset is badly supported and slow under lunux
13:59
linxu
13:59
linux
13:59
<sbalneav>
No, that's the point of xrender.
13:59
<Gadi>
oh, cool
13:59
i didnt realize
13:59
nice
13:59
<sbalneav>
yeah
14:00
I stopped using xfs 5 years ago once we got xrender in 4.1
14:00
XFS was a MAJOR headache for me before.
14:00

<Gadi>
which manufacturer?
14:02
ah
14:02
<sbalneav>
No, "thin client" and "Huge honkin high powered video" are usually mutually exclusive :)
14:03
<Gadi>
sbalneav: ur so presumptuous ;)
14:03
<BlackDark>
I know that the CN700 has an acceleration chip
14:03
but wondering if I could use beryl with it
14:03
<sbalneav>
Having a really powerful video card in a thin client usually doesn't buy you much, unless you're going to run apps locally.
14:03
<Gadi>
not true
14:04
only if you tunnel through ssh is that true
14:04
<BlackDark>
the rendering of the apps is done on locally
14:04
<Gadi>
otherwise, there's a BIG diff with a good videocard
14:04
X is network transparent
14:04
<BlackDark>
actually I'm puzzled what to do
14:04
<sbalneav>
Yeah, but LIMITED TO NETWORK SPEED.
14:04
<BlackDark>
1. buy some terminals at diskless workstations
14:05
2. buy some old small factor pcs like old dell
14:05
I've a gig network
14:05
<sbalneav>
i.e. having an ati Rage 128 versus a Radeon 9800 makes not a lot of difference on a 100 meg network.
14:05
<BlackDark>
thee goal is to have 2 silent terminals on our desks
14:05
<Gadi>
sbalneav: common misconception
14:05
<BlackDark>
to work at home
14:06
<Gadi>
the network speed is not always the bottleneck
14:06
<sbalneav>
Oh really? So I suppose my 7+ years of experience with it is irrelevant. :)
14:06
<BlackDark>
the server itselft could be the bottleneck
14:06
the terminal too
14:06
<Gadi>
yup
14:06
:)
14:06
<sbalneav>
Gadi-- :)
14:06
<BlackDark>
I have some visara terms, based on cyrix chipset
14:06
ie 233 mhz cpu
14:06
and I can't work with that
14:06
it's too slow
14:07plamengr has quit IRC
14:07
<BlackDark>
even in xdmcp mode
14:07
<sbalneav>
A crappy via video vs a good video card, yep, difference
14:08
a good video card vs the best video card out there = not much difference, other than local apps.
14:08
<bjohnson>
sbalneav: no error message displays, it just goes back to login screen
14:08
<sbalneav>
THEN it makes a huge difference.
14:08
<BlackDark>
sbalneav, so you say the terminals with a via chip set are crappy then ?
14:08
<bjohnson>
doesn't even show the kde startup dialog
14:08
<BlackDark>
actually I'd like some good rendering for apps
14:08
<sbalneav>
BlackDark: Depends on what you want. I use a ton of them, but then, most of my stuff's simple word processing and web browsing. Not much video going on.
14:09
<BlackDark>
I won't play games on the terminals
14:09
sbalneav, how is a video playing rendering ?
14:09
for youtube, a movie trailer for instance ?
14:09
<sbalneav>
it's bytes down the wire. One frame at a time.
14:10
<Gadi>
bjohnson: do you have any custom scripts in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/
14:10
<bjohnson>
no
14:10
<BlackDark>
on a test machine here, which is an old PII-400 video rendering is quite alright
14:11
it has an old ati video card, using the xorg ati driver
14:11
<sbalneav>
So if it works, you're golden.
14:12
It's a case of diminishing returns. At some point, you're going to be limited by wire speed.
14:12
<BlackDark>
yes off course
14:13
I think I'm gonna buy the 1220 and testing it
14:14zodman has quit IRC
14:16
<sbalneav>
Gadi: Certainly, a bad video card's gonna make things worse. But what I'm saying is, given keeping the machine speed the same, and installing a card that, say, has 16 times the performance, you're not gonna see the same performance boost on a TC the way you'd see it on a local box.
14:17
<Gadi>
there are lots of variable when it comes to video
14:18
most people say good video is impossible on a thin client
14:18
when, I can run 1024x768 fullscreen sync'd video with no problems with pulseaudio+directx
14:19
a lot of the video 'problems' that folks have had in the past have been software related not hardware
14:19
poor codecs,
14:19
wrong graphic language
14:19
broken esd ;)
14:19
<bjohnson>
remote users can't login when session=gnome is selected on login screen either .. so it must be kdm related issue
14:19
<Gadi>
yet the finger always is most easily directed at network bandwidth
14:20
which very rarely has been the bottleneck
14:20
and certainly is not when only one thin client is involved and there are issues
14:20
bjohnson: have you checked the logs?
14:21
<BlackDark>
playing video is supported, the guys of mini-myth are doing it with mythtv
14:21
they packaged a netboot installation for a mythtv client
14:21
so playing full screen is supported
14:22
<bjohnson>
as much as I can. /var/log/secure shows a successful login via pam
14:22
<Gadi>
mythtv is a different case, as the video runs locally
14:22
sbalneav and I are talking remote video
14:23
bjohnson: make kdm log more
14:23
:)
14:23
I think there's a setting
14:23
<bjohnson>
/var/log/messages shows: Unknown session exit code 0 (sig 11) from manager process
14:23
<Gadi>
tho, im not a big kdm guy
14:28
<BlackDark>
Gadi, can I use openchrome with ltsp ?
14:28
<Gadi>
are you on LTSP5?
14:29
(the answer is yes to both, its just a matter of how trivial it is to implement)
14:30
<BlackDark>
yes I do
14:30
how stable/fast is the openchrome driver ?
14:30
<Gadi>
it is stable - I know ogra has used it)
14:30
I think it just works for some chipsets and not others
14:31
and it overwrites the standard via driver
14:31
you cannot have them both installed at the same time
14:31
but, give it a try
14:31
I think its in universe
14:32
<BlackDark>
good
14:32
I'll
14:32
<Gadi>
sorry - unichrome
14:32
not openchrome
14:32
try unichrome
14:33
<BlackDark>
it's just to chroot, and then apt-get remove, apt-get install it
14:33
xserver-xorg-video-unichrome
14:34
unichrome is the only one in the repositories
14:34
<Gadi>
yeah

my mistake
14:35
<Gadi>
you need to edit /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/apt/sources.list
14:35
and add universe
14:35
then chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get update

hi! how do i enable autologin for terminals?
19:03
im ussing gdm (ubuntu 7.04) and ltsp 5
19:19
<sbalneav>
Not sure using gdm
19:19
but for ldm, if you download gadi's patched ldm, you can get autologin going.

Hey guys, is there a list of Touch Screens that are known to work in the LTSP environment, anywhere?
20:17
<sbalneav>
No, don't think so.
20:18
But there was a question about this on the mailing list, and someone responded.
20:18
Listed a brand they said worked.
20:18
With ltsp5, any touch screen that works well in X should work with ltsp
20:20
<NefariousAryq>
Yeah, that was me that posted the question... hehe :-D I was just wanting to do some price comparison... ELO's are a lil more expensive. But if they're known to work great, then thats what I'll go with.
20:21
I'm going to be using 4.2, still, cuz I'm on Slackware.
20:22
<sbalneav>
Do you need localdev or sound support?
20:23
<NefariousAryq>
Nope.
20:23
<sbalneav>
You could use ltsp5 then.
20:23
We've got tarballs on ltsp.org
20:24
<NefariousAryq>
Well I was looking at the new LTSP Term 1000 PXE, because of its size and price, and it has plenty of power for what I'll be using it for. and I saw on the DisklessWorkstation site it said we recommend this client with 4.2.
20:32
Speaking of that 1000, anyone used one yet? They look awesome, nice and cheap and tiny.
20:33
<sbalneav>
I've got one.
20:33
It's cheap and tiny.
20:33
<NefariousAryq>
lol.
20:33
Works nicely?
20:34
<sbalneav>
Like I say, it's cheap and tiny.
20:34
<NefariousAryq>
Heh.
20:34
IC.
20:35
<sbalneav>
We've spent a fair amount of time getting it to work better under ltsp5
20:36
<NefariousAryq>
So, let me get this straihgt, make sure I understand this... if I downloaded the Ubuntu "package" of LTSP5, and put it under /opt/ on my Slackware server... the clients would technically be Ubuntu LTSP5 clients, running on Slackware? :)
20:36
<sbalneav>
Yep
20:37
The client will be running Ubuntu.
20:37
<NefariousAryq>
Interesting.
20:37
Perhaps since this is a brand new project, unrelated to my other LTSP projects, I'll give that a try.
20:38
What sort of boot time does the 1000 get, with LTSP 5, nowadays? I see it says 3+ min on the D/W page.
20:39
Sorry for so many question :-D
20:41
<sbalneav>
'bout 80 seconds.
20:41
but even on the exitsting ltsp5, it's just the boot time that's slow.
20:42
<NefariousAryq>
OH okay.
20:42
Well thats good then.
