<Ghid0rah>
Greetings Everyone. I was wondering if I can hook up a local USB device (non storage device) to a terminal and have a local app access the device?
08:46
<Appiah>
Well yes
08:46
Such as printers and CD-readers works
08:46
CD burner does not work
08:46
CD Writer*
08:47
I guess scanners works too

just like on a normal workstation

<abeehc>
anyone have tips on getting synergy to work between a client and my laptop
11:44
<johnny>
no.. but this isn't the write channel for that
11:45
unless it's something that's directly a problem with ltsp
11:45
right*
11:45
<abeehc>
problem is a bit harsh
11:45
but the ltsp client
11:45
is the problem
11:45
<johnny>
what specifically about it..
11:45
<abeehc>
i just don't know how to approach it
11:45
do you know what synergy is
11:45
<johnny>
especially with something like synergy.. not sure what would be any different vs a standard install
11:45
yes, it's for desktop sharing, you can have windows open on multiple OS even
11:46
<abeehc>
something along those lines
11:46
<johnny>
and switch back and forth with a keystroke
11:46
<abeehc>
hmm well i've tried installing it on the ltsp server
11:46
its alright i'll struggle along
11:46
you clearly have no tips
11:46
<johnny>
you haven't provided any detals
11:47
that's like saying "it's broken"
11:47
nobody can help with that that lack of details
11:47
<abeehc>
it's not broken i doubt
11:47
<johnny>
it's obviously not working right in some fashion
11:47
so don't jump to conclusions.. try providing details
11:47
if it's an ltsp problem and i can't help, i know some folks who can
11:47
<abeehc>
i appreciate that

Hey guys, a quick question. Has anyone tried to puch the Netbook Remix frontend over ltsp? Is it even possible?
15:29
<johnny>
hmm.. sbalneav what do you use for issue tracking for regular folks at legal aid? anything? something custom?
15:29
helpdesky stuff
15:30
why woul you want to do that?
15:30
<rad4Christ>
Me?
15:30
<johnny>
srry... can't type your nick.. it's somewhat uhmm.. offensive..
15:30
yes, you
15:31
it's probably possible
15:31
<rad4Christ>
Well, this is for a computer lab in a school, and the layout of the UNR is nice and clean.
15:31
<johnny>
i don't know what wm is even used tho
15:31
they are about to change it drastically btw
15:31
something called unity...
15:31
<rad4Christ>
It's gnome, but it uses a custom menu system/something or other.
15:31
<johnny>
it seems possible that it might just work
15:31
<rad4Christ>
Yeah, I know. 10.04 did however allow it to run without 3d acceleration.
15:32
<johnny>
ah.. yes.. that would still be the same
15:32
<rad4Christ>
I've already tried, the clients defaulted to the basic gnome layout
15:32
<johnny>
that sounds like a hard requriement
15:32
your clients can't do 3d?
15:32
what video cards?
15:32
<rad4Christ>
Meh, it's not a requirement, just a wish. I'll move forward on the set up, but it'd be nice if I could use it.
15:32
<johnny>
no.. i meant it's a hard requirement for that interfae
15:32
interface*
15:32
<rad4Christ>
These are subpar PCs that are really only good for thin client usage.
15:33
Ahh, gotcha.
15:33
<johnny>
that doesn't mean they can't do 3d
15:34
<rad4Christ>
Well, on these particular units, they have an Intel chipset with driver issues. In 9.04 the only way to get the menu system to detect mouse over and respond was to disable tracing.
15:35
But either way, standard gnome desktop works, I just thought I'd try.
15:35
And my apologies if a name based on a person of faith is found to be offensive.
15:35
have a great day!

anyone able to help me with this (hopefully simple) question. I've got an LTSP client (ubuntu 10.04) to connect, automatically login. How do I share the external drives connected to the client over the network using samba
17:34
<alkisg>
Right click on the drives and select share?
17:35
<grspence__>
alkisg - tried that....
17:35
<johnny>
alkisg, you're here still? i'm suprised
17:36
<alkisg>
Heh... had some work to do, and now I'm just finishing my beer...
17:36
grspence__: and? why doesn't it work?
17:36
<grspence__>
doesn't show up as a share
17:37
i can add the entry manually into my smb.conf but still no worky....
17:37
the drive appears mounted in /media/(ltspusername)/drivename
17:37
but i cannot access the files from the server
17:38
<alkisg>
But the user is on the server, so he can access them from the server...
17:38
(a thin client session is on the server)
17:38
<grspence__>
i get the ltsp client to login automatically with the username "ltspclient" that i've set up on the system....
17:39
i think it's somethign like a permissions error....can't access the drive as technically it's another user trying to access a directory "owned" by ltspclient
17:39
how would i change the permissions?
17:39
<alkisg>
If the ltspclient user is on the sambashare group, can't he share it with samba?
17:40
I can't imagine why not (haven't tried it though)
17:40
Sure if you try to directly access it as another user, you can't, because of permissions. But over samba? You should be able to...
17:40
<grspence__>
yup in the sambashare group
17:41
well the user ltspclient can't share it over samba... so my thinking is get my username to share it over samba logged into the server.... but it's a permissions error that keeps on stumping me
17:41
<alkisg>
I think it'd be easier to focus on why the user can't share it over samba
17:41
<grspence__>
hmm
17:42
should just be a case or me right clicking on the folder and sharing it on the client tho huh?
17:43
<alkisg>
me == ltspclient, right
17:43
I just tried with a floppy inside vbox
17:44
I went to /media/user/, right clicked on "floppy0", and selected share
17:44
nautilus prompted me to give some permissions (read by others etc) and now it's shared
17:44
<grspence__>
that's what i'm doing but no luck :(
17:44
maybe i should re-install samba then
17:44
sounds like a samba issue huh?
17:45
<johnny>
reinstalling rarely fixes anything on linux
17:45
unless you actually deleted/modified the program files
17:46
<grspence__>
hmmm
17:46
u do me a favour.... pastbin ur smb.conf?
17:48
<alkisg>
It's the default... but wait... it said that it shared it, and put the icon and everything, but I don't think I'm able to see it over the network
17:48* alkisg looks better...
17:49
<grspence__>
thats my issue
17:49
<alkisg>
Maybe ltspfsd only allows the current user, let me see...
17:55
<grspence__>
wonder if i log in with the same username on both machines that would work
17:55
<alkisg>
Nah, samba runs as a different user anyway
17:55
<grspence__>
but then i got programs on startup that would try to be launched by both machines....cause issues
17:56
hmmm ok
17:56
i'm stumped
17:56
<alkisg>
I think the solution would be in ltspfsd itself
17:56* alkisg doesn't use local media though - at least not with thin clients, only with fat clients..
17:56
<grspence__>
aye....
17:57
but i want the client tucked away in a cupboard with all my external drives connected to it....
17:57
and then access the files on my PC connected to my television for mythtv
17:57
keep all the "ugliness" out of sight
17:59
weird thing is if i SSH as the ltspclient user to the server....
17:59
i can access the files
17:59
think i need to look into the permissions of the drive in the /media/ltspclient folder
18:02
<alkisg>
Hmmm maybe it's not a permissions issue, but a fuse issue
18:02
I.e. maybe fuse only shows the mounted files to the current user
18:02
sbalneav would know :)

what would the command to give everyone read/write access? sudo chmod ugo_rwx to the directory?
18:06
<johnny>
i don't think that would work in this case
18:06
yes.. ask sbalneav ..
18:06
you migh twant to post to the mailing list

ltsp-discuss
18:08
<grspence__>

18:09
<johnny>
post to discuss
18:09
before sleep
18:09

18:15
<grspence__>

18:15
the client and the server must be logged on with same username
