hi there
07:40
i have setup a ubuntu 10.4 ltsp server and i am having a strangeproblem with hpt5730 thin clients, the thin client has radeon vga aand it is detected correctly , however when it boots its gets the login screen withtout naywhere to actaully login
07:41
what i mean is the background image is there but no field to enter a username password combo
07:42
i have tried forcing a fixed resolution using x_mode_0 = 1024x768 but that doesnt help either
07:43
any ideas ?
07:44
<Appiah>

07:44

07:50
<dean_za>

<frederickjh>
I have setup localapps on my server and setup the thinclient NAT. Firefox works but Opera and minitube do not. In fact Opera starts on the server.
08:28
I am wondering if packages that they depend on other than libaries need to be installed on the server as well for this to work?
08:30
Is anyone here running Minitube or Opera as a local application?
08:31dean_za has quit IRC
08:54
<frederickjh>
Anyone know why Opera would not start as a local app when it is listed in lts.conf so, LOCAL_APPS=True LOCAL_APPS_MENU=True LOCAL_APPS_MENU_ITEMS=firefox,opera,minitube,vlc ? Firefox start as a local app but not Opera.

highvoltage: hey, you finally made it to Montreal ?
14:15
<highvoltage>
jammcq: I did indeed! landed last night
14:15
<jammcq>
cool
14:15
how long are you there for?
14:15
<highvoltage>
short answer: long
14:16
I've basically moved over completely
14:16
<jammcq>
you gonna be around at the end of October? BTS is October 28-31
14:16
<highvoltage>
yep! :)
14:16
<jammcq>
awesome
14:16
do you have what you need to get into the US ?
14:17
<highvoltage>
I'll phone Monday to find out
14:17
I don't think getting a visa for a short visit should be much of a problem
14:17
<jammcq>
cool
14:17
is this your first time over on this side of the pond?
14:18
<highvoltage>
yep, first time ever
14:18
<jammcq>
wow. it'll be interesting to hear what you have to say about the cultural differences
14:18
<highvoltage>
well, there's this stereotype that Canadians are really, really friendly
14:18
so far I can totally confirm that
14:19
<jammcq>
heh
14:19
yes, they definitely are
14:19
it's almost creepy :)
14:20
<highvoltage>
I know! yesterday I walked into a convenience store at a gas station and the people behind the counter said "hello! how are you? if you need anything just call us"
14:20
<jammcq>
yeah, creeps me right out
14:20
<highvoltage>
for a moment I was thinking "what? are they talking to me? I didn't say anything!?"
14:22
BTS sounds cool, sbalneav also said we'll have an Edubuntu hackfest at some point
14:22
<jammcq>
sounds good
14:23
I hope stgraber can make it. I haven't had a chance to talk to him lately
14:24
<highvoltage>
I'm actually staying at his place so he's literally in the room next to me :)
14:24
<jammcq>
cool
14:24
ask him if he got my email about brazil
14:24
and see if he's still going
14:25
<stgraber>
jammcq: yep
14:25
<highvoltage>
I think he is, I poked him so he'll probably tell you himself :)
14:26
<jammcq>
stgraber: yeah, sorry me and scotty won't be there. I've been to the last 8 of them, but this year, i've got a big conflict :(
14:27
<highvoltage>
jammcq: did you try dpkg --force-all? that sometimes helps :p
14:27
<stgraber>
jammcq: I got you e-mail indeed, I asked a quote to our travel agency yesterday but I'm pretty sure it'll get approved and I'll be there
14:27
<jammcq>
heh
14:27
it's coming up soon
14:27
stgraber: I deployed LTSP-5.2 at my customer in Rochester NY last week
14:28
I am totally impressed with how good LTSP is these days
14:28
<stgraber>
yeah, it "just" works :)
14:28
<jammcq>
it's a doctors office. they have 2 terminals at the front-desk area and each has 1 printer, 2 scanners and a signature pad. It was really easy to set up
14:29
eventually, we'll migrate all of the users from LTSP-5 to 5.2. they'll have about 80 terminals when that is done
14:29
<stgraber>
btw, you said that we'd put us in touch with some ltsp guys in Brazil, any idea of when you could put us in touch (I now that Fernando is currently working on some sort of schedule for us during the week we're there) ?
14:30
cool, scanners are working very nicely now, it was just so easy to add this feature ;)
14:30
<jammcq>
I talk to mfdutra every day
14:30
and alberto bengoa

Marlon (mfdutra) runs Propus, they handle all of the networking for FISL
14:31
marlon is mailto:marlon@propus.com.br
14:31
If I talk to him later today, I'll tell him to expect contact from you
14:31
also, I think he'll be at BTS this year
14:31
<stgraber>
cool
14:32
<jammcq>
Propus deploys TONS of ltsp all over brazil
