hi all , does anyone now how to redirect ltsp users to squid port 3128 , have test some iptables codes with "-m owner --gid-owner" but not work.
05:42
<Ahmuck-Jr>
someone mentioned a way to prevent classmates from crossing into other user's home directories

masus: I don't know about iptables, but you can also force the proxy with gnome mandatory settings (gconf), if you want.
05:53
<masus>
alkisg: thank you
05:54
<alkisg>
masus: if you're interested, I can look up the exact gconftool-2 line for you.

hey, has anybody had any luck with booting a client to rdesktop in 9.04? I have IP v4 forwarding turned on for localapps, along with the chmod /etc/resolv.conf for the chroot... I am trying to access a brand new Windows 2008 R2 server.
07:28
but when I boot my client, it comes up with a blinking black screen...
07:28
like it's *trying* to connect, but can't bring up the rdesktop session

<compdoc>
can anyone help with vnc-ltsp-config?
09:50
<dro>
compdoc: what is it that you need
09:50
<compdoc>
does it work with vncserver, or does it replace it?
09:51
the vncserver service in centos
09:51
<dro>
compdoc: i believe it runs in the chroot
09:51
compdoc: you wouldn't actually install it on the server
09:52
<compdoc>
ooops
09:52
<dro>
compdoc: if you installed it on the centos server instead of the chroot, then it would replace any existing vncserver installs or at least conflict with it
09:52
<compdoc>
I followed some instructions in a wiki, but they dont tell you all the steps you really need to take
09:53
so I should remove the existing vncserver
09:53
<dro>
compdoc: perfect chance for you to use that wiki and others to get it working, and then update the wiki
09:54cpnogueira has joined #ltsp
09:54
<compdoc>
I never been able to update any wiki
09:54
<dro>
compdoc: i don't use centos with ltsp, but basically you want to install it in the chroot
09:54
<compdoc>
there a good tutorial somewhere?
09:55
<dro>
compdoc: for centos not sure, let me look around at the ubuntu documentation, should be really close
09:56
<compdoc>
maybe Im confused - is ltsp client only?
09:56
<dro>
!docs
09:56
<ltspbot>
dro: "docs" is For the most current documentation, see http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LtspDocumentationUpstream
09:57
<dro>
compdoc: spend some time reading over the docs
09:57
<compdoc>
Id like a vnc session to go away when I log out
09:57
<dro>
compdoc: try this link: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server
09:57
compdoc: read it all the way thru, then try it
09:57
<compdoc>
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server is the one I used :(
09:58Selveste1 has quit IRC
09:59
<dro>
compdoc: read more about ltsp with centos, and try again in this room
09:59
<compdoc>
www.ltsp.org seems to be broken
09:59
<dro>
i find that in roughly 4 hours time, is a good time
10:00
<rjune>
compdoc, so it does.
10:00
jammcq, ping
10:00
<dro>
compdoc: give it some time, it will come back
10:00
<compdoc>
is ltsp a client?
10:00
<dro>
compdoc: read the documentation
10:00
<compdoc>
cant
10:01
no docs
10:01
if you dont know, maybe someone else does
10:01
<rjune>
compdoc, LTSP is a method of managing clients and setting up the server.
10:01
<compdoc>
ty
10:01
<rjune>
you still having issues with the vmware thing?
10:01
gah,l vnc
10:01
I got vmware on the brain apparently
10:02msaul_ has joined #ltsp

compdoc: ltsp stands for linux terminal server project, in short terms it's a fast and easily deployable thin client solution

<sbalneav>

10:03* rjune shrugs.
10:03
<rjune>
sbalneav, somebody needs to ping Ron, ltsp.org is acting funny
10:03
<msaul_>
Hi, I noticed that thin client has problem playing sound (Choppy on youtube and while playing frozen bubble). Was wondering if there was something I need to set to configure a solution to this problem... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
10:04
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10...
10:04
<dro>
msaul_: are you using any screen scripts? like rdesktop or just ldm?
10:04
<sbalneav>
rjune: we're on it
10:04
<msaul_>
Just ldm
10:04
<rjune>
sbalneav, ok.
10:05
<dro>
msaul_: does it happen if you only have 1 thin client running?
10:05
<msaul_>
I only have one right now, just using a crossover ethernet cable
10:05
<dro>
msaul_: how much memory in that thin client
10:05
<msaul_>
1 GB
10:05
<rjune>
in the client?
10:05
<msaul_>
yes
10:05
3 gb on server
10:06
they are good machines
10:06
<rjune>
you whippersnappers and your RAM these days.
10:06
<dro>
msaul_: is it slow doing anything else on that client?
10:06
<msaul_>
Not really.
10:06
<rjune>
dro, are you thinking network or cpu?
10:06
<dro>
msaul_: probably video drivers, causing it to drag
10:06
<msaul_>
When I ran frozen-bubble disabling sound, it ran slow, but worked properly
10:06johnny has joined #ltsp
10:07
<dro>
msaul_: try turning down/off the visual effects
10:07
<msaul_>
would have affect the quality of sound?
10:07
<rjune>
it could.
10:07
<dro>
msaul_: it's possible
10:08
<rjune>
what video card in the terminal?
10:08
<msaul_>
I recall on older versions, you would go into sound and set sound info like ods overnetworks...
10:08
<jammcq>
oddness
10:08
<dro>
msaul_: does the video or window drag or go slow if while watching the video you try to move firefox around
10:08
<msaul_>
What do you mean move firefox around?
10:08
<dro>
msaul_: minimize it, maximize it, make it small and move it left to right
10:09otavio_ has joined #ltsp
10:09
<dro>
msaul_: the other options are to go to system-->preferences-->sound
10:09
<rjune>
jammcq, do you know if xdamage works properly now?
10:09
<dro>
msaul_: output tab, and try changing the connector option to something else
10:10
<jammcq>
yeah, damn'ed ltsp.org server has been hacked
10:11otavio_ has quit IRC
10:11
<rjune>
ah hell.
10:11
jammcq, need any help?
10:11
<jammcq>
no, restoring now
10:11
but I need to do something more permanent
10:11
I'm considering moving the ltsp.org stuff back to Sourceforge
10:12
<dro>
jammcq: are you running the server yourself or having someone host it?
10:12
<msaul_>
dro. Turned off effects under SYSTEM PREFERENCES APPEARS to barebones, but same issue with choppy playback on youtube videos
10:12
<jammcq>
dro: running it myself
10:12
<rjune>
msaul_, that might never change.
10:12
<jammcq>
but that's become a major pain
10:13
<dro>
msaul_: did you move firefox around to see if it was also choppy
10:13
<msaul_>
btw, hi Jim, glad to hear you are doing well (and busy!) :)
10:13otavio_ has joined #ltsp
10:13
<dro>
jammcq: yea i hear ya, i did that for a while and it just always had issues
10:13
jammcq: godaddy.com ftw
10:13
<msaul_>
dro, yes, not a problem with this...
10:13
<rjune>
jammcq, ltsp is still a 501c right?
10:13
<jammcq>
rjune: nope
10:13
never was
10:13
I'll just put it up on Sourceforge
10:13
<rjune>
I thought you guys registered as a non-profit.
10:13
<jammcq>
they have everything we need and it's free
10:13
<rjune>
Indeed.
10:14
<jammcq>
but... we'll need to change the wiki to MediaWiki
10:14
which is way better than Twiki anyway
10:14
<dro>
msaul_: ok go to system-->preferences-->sound-->output tab and try changing the connection option to something else
10:14
<msaul_>
Will do. Just need to go downstairs to check, will be back...
10:15
<dro>
jammcq: how much traffic do you use on a monthly basis?
10:16
<jammcq>
dro: very little. it's just a home page and a wiki
10:17
<msaul_>
When I do that, I don't see under Output other options to select, just internal audio analog and a balance slider...
10:17
<dro>
jammcq: why not go to a hosting company then? i'm sure users would donate enough each year to keep it going
10:17
<jammcq>
dro: what would a hosting company offer me that would be better than sourceforge?
10:17
<msaul_>
Why not ask Seneca College?
10:17
<jammcq>
why?
10:17
Sourceforge is specifically there for hosting opensource projects
10:17staffencasa has joined #ltsp
10:17
<dro>
jammcq: does sourceforge let you access your site at www.ltsp.org or is it ltsp.sourceforge.net
10:18
<jammcq>
and we've had an account with them for like a million years
10:18
<msaul_>
Good point...
10:18
<jammcq>
dro: yes
10:18
and they've been hosting the mailing list since 2000
10:18
<dro>
msaul_: at the bottom you don't have an option for connector?
10:18kusznir has quit IRC
10:18
<msaul_>
let me check
10:19
No there isn't
10:19Selveste1 has joined #ltsp
10:20
<dro>
msaul_: ok scratch that idea
10:20otavio has quit IRC
10:20
<dro>
msaul_: open system monitor to watch your cpu/memory usage and then play the video
10:20
msaul_: see if your cpu maxes out
10:21kusznir has joined #ltsp
10:23
<msaul_>
OK, CPU didn't max out. Went up and down but not exceeding 50%
10:23
Network did go very high, nearly 6 Mibs
10:23
Near the top of that graph in system monitor
10:24
Sorry, did you mean CPU on thin client or server?
10:25vvinet has joined #ltsp
10:30
<dro>
msaul_: client
10:30
msaul_: watch it from the client
10:31
msaul_: and dude, it might be because of your crossover, bad cable or something
10:31
msaul_: do you have a switch or anything to plug into to eliminate that possiblity
10:32
<sbalneav>
msaul_: How are you warching this video?
10:32
With flash?
10:32
<msaul_>
Yes, with Flash
10:32
<sbalneav>
!flash
10:32
<ltspbot>
sbalneav: "flash" is Yes, flash sucks. Make sure you have LDM_DIRECTX=True in your lts.conf file, or if it's just youtube you're after, try the HQtube plugin. Install greasemonkey for firefox, and see http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/24999
10:32
<sbalneav>
here's a test
10:32
Applications -> Sound and Video -> Movie player
10:33
<rjune>
sbalneav, oh, good to know.
10:33
<johnny>
i heard that totem itself will play youtube sbalneav
10:33
<sbalneav>
Drop down the selector at the top of the sidebar, where it says "playlist"
10:33
select "youtube"
10:33
johnny: yeah, that's what I'm getting him to try
10:33
<johnny>
ah
10:33
<msaul_>
OK, I will try that. Should I uninstall flash (i.e. flush the flash - bad humour) from my system first?
10:34
<sbalneav>
fill in the search box with your search term
10:34
<johnny>
would be good not to force mplayer.. i thought the instructions did
10:34
<sbalneav>
watch video
10:34
<johnny>
msaul_, depends on if you need any other flash content..
10:34
<sbalneav>
if the video watches fine, then the problem isn't with ltsp, it's a flash bug.
10:34
please feel free to contact adobe, and get them to fix it.
10:35
<msaul_>
OK, I will try that in a while, and I will get back to you to let you know how it worked (and then contact adobe)... Will be a little while...
10:35
<sbalneav>
I'm sure, like any good project they must have a bugtracker where your can enter a bug.
10:35
Or an irc channel where they offer support.
10:36
(Is my sarcasm getting too biting?)
10:36
ok, I have to pop out for some more blood tests

OK, I did as instructed, installed greasemonkey plugin, it is running HQTube. I have medibuntu added to the repository so it asked for and allowed my to install decode for shockwake file, I do a playlist search, displays the matches beautifully, but when I double-click to run, error message states "Gstreamer encountered a general supporting library error"...
12:00
<sbalneav>
What happens if you don't run it under hqtube?
12:00
just run totem directly
12:00
then it should ask you for any plugins it needs.
12:00
<msaul_>
that was running it directly in totem
12:00
It did ask, and wanted to install gstreamer for decoding Flash files...
12:00
I did that...
12:01
When I tested this, I opened Totem, and did the instructions...
12:01
<sbalneav>
hold on, I'm checking here
12:01artista-frustrad has quit IRC
12:01
<sbalneav>
I need to install the gstreamer plugins
12:02
<alkisg>
msaul_: that's probably a bug in the totem youtube plugin - but that has *nothing* to do with hqtube and greasemonkey
12:03
They are 2 *different* methods to access youtube....
12:05Selveste1 has joined #ltsp

<johnny>
alkisg, it would be nice if we didn't hae to use hqtube alkisg
12:08
and just used totem instead
12:08
would make alot more sense imo
12:08
<alkisg>
I tried to apply that in my classrooms once
12:08
Total failure... :(
12:08
The students weren't accustomed to opening a video player to search youtube, and it was really, painfully slow
12:09
(not the playback; the searching)
12:09
<sbalneav>
What's needed is for someone to take the gm script, and turn it into a proper plugin
12:09
so it can be installed globally
12:10
<msaul_>
When I went to youtube and clicked on video it stated "HQtube is not compatible with Youtube and needs updating"
12:10
I just followed the instructions... :)
12:10
<sbalneav>
yeah, there's a fix for that on the hq tube page
12:10
hold on, my plugins are almost installed
12:11
<msaul_>
sorry, what was the URL for HQtube again?
12:11
so I can write that down... for future reference...
12:11
<sbalneav>
!flash
12:11
<ltspbot>
sbalneav: "flash" is Yes, flash sucks. Make sure you have LDM_DIRECTX=True in your lts.conf file, or if it's just youtube you're after, try the HQtube plugin. Install greasemonkey for firefox, and see http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/24999
12:11
<msaul_>
got it... thanks

msaul_: ah, it's a bug
12:14
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ffmpeg/+bug/459423
12:15
you need to enable proposed in your ubuntu
12:15
then update
12:15
<kdegel>
Gadi: you wrote this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ActiveDirectoryIntegration right?
12:20
<msaul_>
Will do. Thanks. btw when I add LDM_DIRECTX=True in lts.conf, the game frozen-bubble works better, but no sound, although there was sound when I logged in to the session prior to playing game. Does this option in lts.conf disable the sound for that game? Just curious...
12:21
<sbalneav>
no
12:22
<msaul_>
So I'll just wait until they fix the bug with totem...
12:24
I'll be back after a while got errands to do... :) thanks for the great help to-date :)

13:51

did we jinx it?

and ron said "Maybe hackers got in", and I said.... "No, I don't think so"

well...
13:52
<CAN-o-SPAM>
oh really?
13:52
<jammcq>
yep
13:52
there was a directory in the /root dir called "bad_things" dated this morning

attack vector?

also, what was the timestamp on that file?

<jammcq>
sbalneav: I think they came in via twiki
13:59
<johnny>
usually you can't root a server just with web access
14:00
they could have done something in /tmp or whrever twiki stores data files
14:00
there must have been another security hole
14:00
perhaps one of those local root priv escalation tickets?

having an issue with new AD users trying to log into ltsp thin clients
14:13
<Gadi>
ok...
14:13
<kdegel>
sorry I thought I knew what it was, but now I am needing to duplicate something
14:20
Gadi: nevermind, now AD isn't working at all, I thought I was having a strange issue of new users unable to log into the domain via thin client
14:20
blaahh, stupid domain logins

<Gadi>
in an older version, there was a bug where the daemon would die
14:21
<kdegel>
:(
14:22
<Gadi>
which, of course, meant no one could log in
14:22
<kdegel>
I think thats what happened
14:22
crap crap crap crap
14:22
<Gadi>
I think I worked around it with a cron job
14:22
that ran every minute or so
14:22
<kdegel>
oh god
14:22
<Gadi>
and checked if the daemon was running
14:22
lol
14:22
yeah
14:22
you should be able to grab a newer deb tho
14:23
from a newer distro (or from their website)
14:23
I dont think it depends on other packages too much

<Ahmuck>
alkisg: that didn't appear to work
14:25
<alkisg>
Ahmuck: you must be doing something wrong then... adduser is a basic debian package
14:27
That works for *new* users added with adduser.
14:27
For existing users, you should chmod the dirs yourself
14:29
<Ahmuck>
ah
14:29
chmodding them won't mess anything up?
14:29
like the .files
14:29
ie, does sudo have anything in the /home folder
14:30
or can one just chmod -R /home/user
14:30
<alkisg>
I think `sudo chmod 700 /home/user` will be enough for what you want.. without -R
14:30
You could also read about umask, but I'm not sure if you want to go "that far"
14:31
<rjune>
wait. what?
14:33
<johnny>
never use chmod -R
14:33
ever
14:34
if you need to change privs recursively you have to do something more like this
14:35
find /path -type d -exec chmod somemask {} \;
14:35
and
14:35
find /path -type f -exec chmod somemask {} \;
14:36
for directories and files respectively
14:37
Ahmuck, pay attention to that..
14:37scottmaccal has quit IRC
14:37
<johnny>
otherwise you'll end up with directories without executable attributes or files with unnecessary executable attributes..
14:38
<Gadi>
or dont use numbers
14:38
:)
14:38
<johnny>
or that..
14:38
<Gadi>
oh, actually
14:38
<johnny>
you still have to be careful in any case with recursive chmod
14:38
of any kind
14:38
chown is alot safer :)
14:39
<Gadi>
or recursion in general
14:39
like the hand drawing the hand
14:39
or like Back to the Future
14:40
<Ahmuck>
sooo, i'm looking to clean up users, i assume that there is a way to check against a default user to see if anything is different in the directory?
14:40
<Gadi>
"clean up"?
14:40
<rjune>
Gadi, the problem is, to understand recursion, you must first understand recursion.
14:40
<Gadi>
rjune: well thought out
14:40
<rjune>
Ahmuck, diff -ur /etc/skel /home/USERNAME
14:40
but there's likely to be a *LOT* different.
14:44* alkisg liked the "monkey island 3" definition of recursion: see recursion :)
14:50
<Ahmuck>
i guess i was just looking for "new" files
14:51
so if the defualt file set was the same, ie, the same filenames, then i could deluser

<msaul_>
sbalneav I did the repository update, and it now works. I didn't do the fix to have it launch from youtube link (was it the tweak section with the configure file settings?). Also, there is something I now notice. Before, when I did SYSTEM - PREFERENCES - SOUND, there was a tab labelled "Applications", and before when I clicked on it, it did show an alsa plugin. I get sound for most things (system, movieplayer, etc), b
14:51
ut when I play frozen-bubble, no sound, and when I check those SOUND settings for applications it states "no application currently recording or playing audio"...
14:51
Thanks by the way...
14:53
I recall in earlier versions of LTSP, you could set different sound, such as alsa, esd, and there was a "network" setting, but newer sound configuration screen does seem to have this...
14:55
<sbalneav>
msaul_: So, is the video good from totem?
14:56
<Gadi>
msaul_: try opening a terminal and typing: export SDL_AUDIODRIVER="pulse"
14:56
and then run frozen bubble from the terminal
14:56
<msaul_>
Yes, I'm looking at an older video, but it is not choppy...
14:59
sbalneav_: No, I did that command, but it did not generate sound when I restarted frozen-bubble...
15:00
<Gadi>
try: export SDL_AUDIODRIVER="esd"
15:00
(pulseaudio is backwards-compatible with esd)
15:01
<msaul_>
When sound was partially working when I ran frozen-bubble after fresh LSTP system install, frozen-bubble wouldn't exit properly, but when I have not sound now, frozen-bubble at least works and exits properly... I will try that other command you suggested...
15:03
sbalneav_: No, I tried that second command, but frozen-bubble did not give sound when I restarted that game, but it does work and exit properly...
15:04cpnogueira has quit IRC

<Gadi>
did you run the command frozen-bubble from the terminal window?
15:12
<sbalneav>
msaul_: I'm not worried about frozen buble.
15:12
I want to know if the VIDEO is working ok now?
15:12
<msaul_>
Let me do that now...
15:13pmatulis has quit IRC

<msaul_>
Ran frozen bubble from terminal, no error messages regarding audio, but did say "disabling eyecandy because computer too slow"...
15:16
btw, frozen bubble is not a "biggie", in fact, the church I'm setting lab up for probably doesn't want games... I guess it is my stubborn nature. I recall approx 4 years ago running frozen bubble with sound on a Pentium I...
15:16
If memory serves me well... and it was connected to a pentium IV as server with approx 1 Gb RAM...
15:17
... with the same crossover ethernet cable >;) ...
15:28
btw, I really like ltsp - certainly has come a long way!
15:34
<Gadi>
msaul_: I meant run the export command and then frozen-bubble in the same terminal window
15:34
if you ran the export command in the terminal and then ran frozen bubble from the menu, it wouldnt make a difference
15:35
<msaul_>
Oh, sorry, you are right - I see your point *blush* doing it now...
15:38
I issued both commands using export, and ran frozen-bubble, but still no sound...
