hi guys
02:16
working on a script to make google chrome work
02:17
and i was wondering if there is some sort of environment variable or other variable set that would tell me if the current session should have local apps (based off of lts.conf)
02:23
is there a way to disable compiz for individual clients?
02:40
<Appiah>
gconf
02:40
!disable-compiz

Appiah: "disable-compiz" :: To disable compiz, try: sudo gconftool-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager metacity

alkisg1, do you have any idea why Webmin gives Failed to add user to LDAP database: No such object when trying to add user to LDAP?
07:06alkisg1 is now known as alkisg
07:06
<alkisg>
muppis: no idea, never used either webmin nor ldap
07:07
<Appiah>
muppis: debug and check the whole paramater that webmin is trying
07:07
sounds like a misconfiguration
07:08
<muppis>
Yes it does, but which setting..
07:09
<Appiah>
well check the logs and maybe you can figure out exact what option?
07:10
maybe it's trying to add the user ou,incorrect,dc=mydomain,dc=se when it should go somewhere else?
07:14
<muppis>
Setting is copied from working enviroment.
07:15
<Appiah>
still
07:15
check the logs
07:19
<muppis>
Says same to syslog.

07:42
<muppis>

07:44

<_UsUrPeR_>
is there anybody in here responsible or knowledgeable about Fedora 13 and LTSP?
14:23
Every time I open a program, it opens under the applications menu, which seems to screw up X something firece
14:23
also, the bottom task bar does not seem to be populated by programs when they start
14:26coordinador has joined #ltsp

<coordinador>
hi
14:26
is there a way to run all the system locally?
14:27
i mean, downloading the system from the server, but execute everything locally?
14:29
<Kyle__>
coordinador: THat's called fat-client mode.
14:29
coordinador: I use that for my labs. And I believe so does alksig.
14:29
WOrks pretty well.
14:29
<coordinador>
how can i do it? pls
14:30
<Kyle__>
Well, pick your host OS (ubuntu, debian, fedora, etc), and make a fat-client config for it. Then er... do it.
14:30
<coordinador>
now i have a ltsp normal working
14:31
is there a config in ltsp.conf to make thin clients fat?
14:31
<Kyle__>
Did you make a ltsp-build-client.conf?
14:33
If you did, more or less you add a FAT_CLIENT_DESKTOPS line at the top, and build a new image using it.
14:33
I'm using ubuntu, so mine says FAT_CLIENT_DESKTOPS="ubuntu-desktop"
14:35
<alkisg>
!fatclients
14:35
<ltspbot>
alkisg: "fatclients" :: You may find some info about the Ubuntu/LTSP implementation of fat clients at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FatClients
14:37* Kyle__ sighs
14:37
<alkisg>
_UsUrPeR_: I think the new maintainer is Da-Geek, he comes in here once in a while...
14:37
<Kyle__>
My fat clients aren't that powerfull. I think of the more as "big-boned"
14:38
<coordinador>
hummm
14:39
my boxes have 1gb ram and a 1ghz cpu
14:40
how can i know which ltsp version do i have?
14:40
<Kyle__>
coordinador: What type of cpu? The'll probably be fine.
14:43
<coordinador>
my boxes are the boxes from disklessworkstations, the 1200 series
14:46
<Kyle__>
Uum. Gosh. Err. Isn't that like a Via Eden processor?
14:46
<coordinador>
yes
14:47
..i think.
14:47
<Kyle__>
Well, I'd say go ahead and try the fat-clients then, but don't expect much.
14:47
Small embdedded devices, terminals, electronic signs, etc, are about the load-level those can handle.
14:48
<coordinador>
ok, now, since the system loads into ram, how much ram it will be used by system?
14:48
<Kyle__>
Loading a modern browser with flash and more than 1 or two tabs will be quite the task for tha proc...
14:48
coordinador: Actually the system _isn't_ loaded all into ram. It uses a network mount for /, so you pretty much have all the ram you had before.
14:49
<coordinador>
ohh that's nie
14:49
*nice
14:49pmatulis has quit IRC
14:50
<coordinador>
ok, now i have ubuntu 9.04 with ltsp 5, is there a way to change a configuration so the boxes now run as fat?
14:50
<johnny>
best to upgrade to 10.04
14:51
<coordinador>
i will upgrade with aptitude dist-upgrade, is it dangerous?
14:52
<Kyle__>
coordinador: For the client or the server?
14:53* Kyle__ thinks it's not dangerous for either, but he's in a low-stress job now.
14:53
<alkisg>
(10:39:19 PM) coordinador: how can i know which ltsp version do i have? ==> which distro do you have?
14:53
<coordinador>
Kyle__, server, since clients don't have hard disk
14:53
alkisg, 9.04
14:54
ubuntu
14:55
<Kyle__>
coordinador: My mind is still in fat-clients sorry :) For fat clients, the clients have a seperate image, that can be updated and altered independent of the server.
14:55
<coordinador>
ok, so i will update the server with aptitude dist-upgrade ok?
14:55
<Kyle__>
coordinador: T^o go from 9.04 to 10.04? No. For that it's do-release-upgrade
14:56
(as root)
14:56
<coordinador>
:O
14:56
didnt know that command
14:56
<Kyle__>
coordinador: It's one of the lesser used commands.
14:56
<coordinador>
the server is being used now, is dangerous to update?
14:56
don't care, ill be a bofh
14:57
<Kyle__>
coordinador: It's of limmited danger.
14:58
coordinador: My laptop, for instance, was cleanly updated from 8 to 9 to 10, no problems.

<Kyle__>
coordinador: And, if you backup the user files and configs, you can use dpkg --get-selections >& packages, to save a list of what packages you have installed, making it easy to re-install fresh, if things go poorly.

Kyle__, when i do do-release-upgrade i get 'no new release found' , even after do "aptitude update"
15:01
<Kyle__>
Humm. That's odd.
15:01
coordinador: Check in #ubuntu, they can help. I gotta run to a meeting. Joy
15:01
<coordinador>
what about if i do update-manager -d ?
15:02
ok thank you for you help Kyle__
