@johnny remember my problem last time that i cannot login with newly created user. i found in this particular users directory the .xsession-errors and it says: "Window manager error: Unable to open X display localhost:11.0"

in which file do I have to adjust parameters for individual ltsp client for x11?
05:13
<muppis>
baiki, take a loot at this: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man5/lts.conf.5.html
05:15
<baiki>
@muppis thanks. didn't help in my case. i read this page too many times now :-( seems like our school net here in africa will never work. thanks anyway!
05:17
<muppis>
Ah, I forgot. Setting resolution from lts.conf affects only to LDM.
05:18
<baiki>
@muppis ldm works fine on all thin clients. my own username can login on this TC wo/ any troubles but newly created users refuse constantly login on the same machine

<muppis>
baiki, have you looked from logs what happens when new user tries to login?
05:20
<baiki>
http://ltsp.pastebin.com/KcwebZMT
05:21
unfortunately that's all i can see for now. guess it's a resolution and freq. problem because on this TC is a very old CRT screen
05:23
but question is, why is the username during installation working on the same machine but new users not
05:23
<muppis>
CRT's just go blank (or shows something weird), if those goes out of range. I think you graphic card can't handle compiz?
05:24
3D effects and so.
05:26
<baiki>
well, as i mentioned, with my own username on the same thin client there is no problem. if i use on same thin client newly created user, ldm shows up, i enter new username and password (sshd said auth is OK) screen goes blank and returns to ldm again. now i take my username and i can properly login.
05:27
only indication i found so far was the .xsession-errors
05:27
<muppis>
Just out from hat, but try empty that user's homedir and try again.
05:28
<baiki>
ok, will try that.

<mrcarrot>
can anyone point me to some documentation on how to setup a usb printer connected to the thinclient? what do i need to do on the server? the only thing i have found by searching is the changes to lts.conf
07:49
<muppis>
mrcarrot, setting static IP (from dhcpd.conf) for that client and changes to lts.conf
07:49
Set up 3 printers that way, for one had put IP to lts.conf to make it work.
07:50
<mrcarrot>
muppis: is it not possible by mac in lts.conf?
07:50
muppis: do i need to add the printer in some way to the cups running on the server?
07:50
<muppis>
mrcarrot, recommended to use mac, but IP is needed for CUPS.
07:50
Yes.
07:51
Printer is added to CUPS as usual network printer.
07:51
<mrcarrot>
muppis: automatically added?
07:51
<muppis>
Manually.
07:53
But now I need to go.
07:54
<mrcarrot>
muppis: thanks for the help
07:54
hopefully i get it installed

wooo, the schoolboard approved my continued deployment of Linux and LTSP :D
08:05

well done
08:06
<robehend1>
all it took was showing them how, with Freenx and the Nomachine web client, kids could get to the desktops from home on a snow day
08:12
<daduke__>
haha well played
08:13
<robehend1>
mind you, the kids already could do most of their work from home, thanks to Google apps..but i'll take a win anyway I can

hey there
08:52
<noti>
i have installed latest ubuntu 10.10, desktop edition on some machine, and i want it be a server for around 15 thin clients
08:53
is it easy to done ?

<opo>
is it possible to set this server on ubuntu desktop editon- for 10 thin clients who are going to be connected via LAN hub to the server(ubuntu machine)
09:34
<robehend1>
yes, its possible.
09:34
though i'd highly reccomend a switch over a hub
09:35
<opo>
hwy ?
09:35
why ?
09:35
<robehend1>
much, much more efficent.
09:36
<opo>
ok, but for testing it will be hub
09:36
because i alredy own a hub
09:37
<robehend1>
ok. well, yes, its possible. setup your server with 2 nics, one hooked up to the outside world, and one plugged into the hub. The server will provide DHCP for the hub, allowing the clients to boot
09:37
<opo>
nics ?
09:37
<robehend1>
network interface cards. the ethernet plugin
09:38
this guide is mildly dated, but mostly relevant still : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall
09:38
<opo>
so 2 network card for server is a must to have feauture ?
09:39
<robehend1>
you *can* run it with 1 card, but then you either have to setup manual declarations of all the hosts, or have another DHCP server providing the info for pxe boot
09:39
do you have a current DHCP server up and running?
09:39
<opo>
no
09:40
<robehend1>
then are all your clients set to manual addresses? or is it your router providing the dhcp
09:41
<opo>
router is providing
09:41
<robehend1>
hmm, well i doubt your router allows you to set pxe settings in it. At least, i've never seen one.
09:41
I'm not sure of a way to set up what your asking on a single NIC then, without letting the server take over dhcp
09:43
<opo>
what router
09:44
which router ?
09:44
the clients would be connected to the server via huv /switch
09:46
<robehend1>
But would the server be connected to the rest of the network, to provide internet?
09:46
<opo>
not for now
09:46
<robehend1>
sorry, should have asked that first. I havent had my coffee yet
09:46
ah, then your fine.
09:46
<opo>
it's just for test
09:46
<robehend1>
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/LTSPQuickInstall
09:47
<alkisg>
opo: the server, the router and the clients will be connected to the same hub. Is there a dhcp server in that hub?
09:47
E.g. the router?
09:47
Does it provide dhcp?
09:47
<opo>
not for now
09:47
<robehend1>
alkisg: He's not going to hook the server into the router, it seems. just a mini standalone lab
09:47
alkisg: so i believe the ltsp box can do it's own dhcp, if i'm not mistaken
09:47
<opo>
classroom
09:47
<alkisg>
Sure, it can, but it need to be configured to do that
09:47
The default quick install assumes 2 nics
09:48
<robehend1>
ah. wasnt sure about that. I thought it grabbed whatever NICS it saw
09:48
<alkisg>
So opo you'll need to modify /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf in order for the clients to boot.
09:48
(after the quick install steps)
09:48
<opo>
ok
09:49
but, later, if I want to add interner, what should I do =
09:49
?
09:51
should I add another NICS to the server ?
09:51
<alkisg>
You just need to have 1 dhcp server
09:52
The ltsp server can have either 1 or 2 nics, whatever you prefer
09:52
<robehend1>
if you want to use internet with this later, you'd either need to add a nic, or disable the routers dhcp. cant have 2 dhcp
09:52
<alkisg>
Or you can leave the router dhcp enabled and close the ltsp dhcp
09:52
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP
09:52
<robehend1>
i should really try to do that one day, i'm thinking.
09:53
<alkisg>
(if the router isn't good enough to provide a boot filename field, then you can notify the clients about the boot filename by reading that URL above ^)
09:53
<robehend1>
alkisg: random question: can you do ltsp-cluster while using a windows dhcp? I'm thinking this proxydhcp would help with that
09:53
<m4xx>
i'm trying to solve my dual head greeter problem. can i change root = gdk_dget_default_root_window() to gdk_display_get_window_at_device_position()?
09:53
<alkisg>
robehend1: random answer: I've never used ltsp-cluster :)
09:53
<robehend1>
;)
09:53
<alkisg>
But I imagine that you can use any dhcp server...
09:54
<robehend1>
i guess i have to dig in and figure out how the cluster talks to eachotehr then. I thought it was done in the DHCP settings
09:57
anyone have any luck using Wyse thinclients, or is Diskless Workstations the way to go
09:57
<m4xx>
i'm happy with my diskless workstation =]
09:57
<robehend1>
m4xx: which model did you go with?
09:57
<m4xx>
1720
09:58
the only issue i'm having is the dual head login, aside from that they really work great
09:58
<robehend1>
it work well with only one monitor? no way i'm giving kids 2 ;)
09:58
<m4xx>
yes sir
09:58
works just fine with one monitor
09:59artista-frustrad has joined #ltsp

<robehend1>
hmmm. i may have to get one of those to give it a shot
09:59
<m4xx>
i would ;]
09:59
<robehend1>
though might look at the 1600, as I dont need the internal speaker or the dual head
10:00
<m4xx>
yeah, i went with the 1700 for the dual head
10:00
<robehend1>
i'll have to run one of those lovely ROI studies with those vs refurbished p4s..
10:01
<opo>
I'm using some samsung thinclients
10:01
<robehend1>
how are they working out, Opo?
10:01
<m4xx>
so eh, anyone? greeter.c? would changing root = gdk_dget_default_root_window() to gdk_display_get_window_at_device_position() fix my centered greeter on dual screens issue? or am i way off?

11:39
where might i look for errors?
11:41
<Gadi>
m4xx: what did you change? can you paste a diff?
11:41otavio_ has quit IRC
11:41
<m4xx>
it's a terrible hack
11:42
it i just set the width to width/2
11:42
because both of my screens are the same size
11:42
<Gadi>
heh
11:42
<m4xx>
yes =[
11:42
<Gadi>
what line exactly?
11:43
<m4xx>
on my ubuntu source line 475
11:43
pw = width/2;
11:43
w = width/2;
11:43

you might be able to get away with just changing TRUE to FALSE in line 658
11:53
<m4xx>
instead of the /2?
11:53
<Gadi>
yeah
11:54
<m4xx>
trying now, any idea why the logo image show's up as a broken image icon?
11:56
<Gadi>
not sure - if that was the only change you made
11:56
<m4xx>
setting true to false on #658 "gtk_box_pack_start(GTK_BOX(vbox), StatusMessage, TRUE, FALSE, 0);"
11:56
didn't work
11:56
<Gadi>
ok
11:57artista-frustrad has quit IRC
11:57
<Gadi>
did it have no effect?
11:57
<m4xx>
no effect that i see
11:57
<Gadi>
ok
11:57
<m4xx>
goes back to center between two monitors
11:57
<Gadi>
yeah, the way this is laid out it is hard to see
11:57
(in the code, I mean)
11:57
would be better if the authors commented it
11:58
<m4xx>
is there a log somewhere that might show why the logo isn't showing?
12:04
<Gadi>
yuck
12:04
ok, so with this layout
12:04
you need to make a few edits
12:04
I think
12:04
line 636: TRUE -> FALSE
12:05
line 630: TRUE -> FALSE
12:05
line 618: TRUE -> FALSE
12:06
I think with those 3 edits, the login prompt should move to the left
12:06
I think
12:06
<m4xx>
apparently even with out my edit's the logo doesn't show
12:06
OK, checking now
12:07
<Gadi>
perhaps your ldm theme got broken when you installed your version
12:07
<m4xx>
i only copied the gtkgreet executable to the ldm directory
12:07
<Gadi>
anyway, it seems the entrybox, the guest login button, and the timeout boxes are all laid out in strips with their own spacers
12:08
and I think that is what is centering things
12:08
m4xx: how did you compile it?
12:08
<m4xx>
./configure && make
12:08
<Gadi>
perhaps it is looking in the wrong directory
12:08
<m4xx>
it picks up the background image though
12:08
bg.png
12:08
<Gadi>
you may need ./configure --prefix=/usr
12:09
hmm...
12:09
<m4xx>
OK
12:09
perhaps i'm wrong, i am a lil color blind
12:09
will try with your edits now
12:09
<Gadi>
or: ./configure --libexecdir=/usr/lib
12:09
not sure
12:10
you might want to just apt-get source ldm and make your changes and rebuild the package
12:11
bbiab
12:15
<m4xx>
that semi worked. it put the full input box on the right (as in not left) monitor
12:16
but it's not centered on that monitor
12:19
setting prefix=/usr worked for the logo issue
12:25komunista has quit IRC
12:39
<Gadi>
m4xx: this code uses the size of the root window to set width and height, which is the problem
12:40
m4xx: we should instead use the GdkDisplay widget
12:40
and make sure that we only paint one screen
12:42
<m4xx>
could i do something like gtk_screen_get_monitor_gemoetry(gdk_screen_get_default(),0,&my_rect); then set width to my_rect.width?
12:42
<robehend1>
alkisg: Say, a while ago you helped me setup a nbdproxy. You wouldnt happen to have a link to that script you gave me last time, would you? I'm setting up a second server for a different site, and since it worked so well, wanted to apply it
12:43
<m4xx>
robehend1, you can check here: http://www.nubae.com/logs/
12:43
if you remember what date it was
12:43
<robehend1>
m4xx: wow, didnt know that existed. and sadly, i dont :(
12:43
<m4xx>
perhaps you can do some google hax0ring?
12:43
<robehend1>
heh yep!
12:43
<m4xx>
site:nubae.com blah
12:43
?
12:43
or w/e
12:44
<robehend1>
heh, looking up their input system now ;)
12:46
<alkisg>
robehend1: erm, I helped you setup nbd-proxy?!
12:46
nbd-proxy is preinstalled...
12:46
Maybe you had problems with it and you removed it instead?
12:46
<robehend1>
that could be it..
12:46
you had me run a script, and add a line to my lts.conf that gave it a nbd port
12:47
<alkisg>
Hmmm what line?
12:47
Do you have that lts.conf handy?
12:47
<robehend1>
ya, lemme get it here
12:48
ack, not lts.conf, pxelinux.cfg/default

m4xx: here's a diff: http://pastebin.com/TzY9DDS5
12:50
<robehend1>
alkisg: hmm. I must be completely off my rocker. I coulda swore. never mind then ;)
12:50
<m4xx>
Gadi: testing now
12:52
<Gadi>
if that doesn't work, we may have to set screen specifically to screen 0
12:52
<m4xx>
Gadi: again, the form is on the right monitor
12:52
and is not centered
12:53
<robehend1>
heres something i ran into earlier today which drove me a bit daffy. using an old IBM thinkbad for a thinclient. It boots fine, login works great, but when I get in, the numlock is frozen on. turning it off with the FN key does nothing, turning it off in the bios does nothing, etc. I honestly couldnt find a fix.

<m4xx>
yes

are you sure you are testing the right code?

anyone had any luck with using Google Earth on ltsp?

m4xx: does it work on both dualhead and regular?
13:21
if so, it is a nice hack
13:21
<m4xx>
i will test single right now
13:23
works with my vga only
13:23
testing dvi only now
13:25
Gadi: works for me =]
13:26
<Gadi>
excellent! could I trouble you to report the bug on launchpad against ldm and put the fix in the bug report?
13:26* Gadi bats eyes
13:26

:)
13:26

let me see if i can figure out how ;x

yeah, that's the code

it's done sir, hope i did it correctly =]
13:38
<Gadi>
thx!
13:38
<m4xx>
no sir, thank you =]
13:47
if you don't mind me asking another question. When i have a single monitor hooked up i get the ubuntu loading screen with the dot progress bar, with the dual screen's I just get all black
13:47
is there something i can do to make that work?

m4xx: sorry - was afk
14:18
<m4xx>
no worries =]
14:18
<Gadi>
m4xx: that is plymouth - the bootsplash
14:18
<robehend1>
Gadi: is there a way to change the bootsplash, perchance?
14:19
<Gadi>
robehend1: sure
14:19
it is themeable
14:19
<robehend1>
any docs, perchance?
14:19
<Gadi>
apt-get source plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo
14:19
on ubuntu
14:20
modify the source images, rebuild, install in chroot, ltsp-update-kernels, and a way you go
14:20
<robehend1>
wooo
14:20
<Gadi>
now, if you want fancier, you can download one of the other pre-packaged themes
14:20
<robehend1>
do they work with ltsp?
14:20
<Gadi>
or read up on how to script them
14:21
should
14:21
like I say, plymouth has issues with some video chips
14:21
<robehend1>
i may hafta look into this. I've been wanting to add our logo into the bootsplash
14:21
<Gadi>
like the VIA ones don't set the mode properly for the console
14:21
so, you may have to pass vga=788 or some such to the kernel
14:21
in order for the logo to come up properly
14:22
<robehend1>
know of any problems with intel ones? we're nearly 100% intel
14:22
<Gadi>
usually, if it can't do the logo, it defaults to the text theme
14:22* Gadi never had probs on intel
14:22
<m4xx>
i dont even get that =[
14:22
<robehend1>
another thing to add to my "stuff to do over christmas" list, it seems ;)
14:22
<Gadi>
m4xx: do you have "splash" on the kernel comand line?
14:23
<m4xx>
Gadi: works fine with one monitor, with two it's just black
14:23
<Gadi>
m4xx: are the two dvi?
14:23
or a splitter?
14:23
or some such?
14:23
<m4xx>
negative, one vga, one dvi
14:23
<Gadi>
and it doesnt even come up on vga?
14:23
<m4xx>
no sir
14:23
if i have one or the other
14:24
<Gadi>
what chipset?
14:24
<m4xx>
it works great
14:24
intel 945
14:24
<Gadi>
weird
14:24
<m4xx>
if you remember, this has that dvs or what ever hack
14:24
<Gadi>
I wonder if it would work with "nomodeset"
14:25
oh yeah...
14:25
<m4xx>
where might i go about setting that?
14:25
<Gadi>
this was the one that thought it had an LVDS
14:25
right?
14:25
<m4xx>
that's it
14:25
yes sir
14:25
<Gadi>
you may be getting it on the LVDS, then
14:25
:P
14:25
<m4xx>
is there a way to set it to use a particular screen?
14:25
<Gadi>
have you checked the BIOS at all for settings?
14:26
related to video, that is
14:26
well, otherwise, things to play with:
14:26
editing pxelinux.cfg/default and adding to the command line: nomodest
14:26
or: vga=788
14:26
see if either help
14:27
otherwise, im not sure

nomodeset kills my vga monitor, vga=788 has no effect
14:37
<Gadi>
m4xx: yeah, on second thought, intel uses intelfb
14:37
m4xx: so, vga would have no effect
14:37
:)
14:38
im sure google knows
14:38
<m4xx>
modified the description, hopefully that's what you're looking for :)
14:40
Gadi, sorry for my ignorance, but what might be some keywords to search for?
14:41

lol
14:41
c&p ftw
14:41
<Gadi>
hehe
14:41
uhm, its a good question
14:41
the issue is basically one involving intelfb, plymouth, dual head, and lvds
14:42
so, those might be a good start
14:42
<m4xx>
thank you sir =]
14:42
<Gadi>
there are lots of these lvd quirks with intel drivers
14:43
mostly because the driver is too good and the BIOS's are too stupid
14:44
it is really the responsibility of the manufacturer when they burn a bios for the thin client to tell the bios to report no lvds
14:44
but, most of these boards are not made with such care
14:44
so, the drivers wind up working around it
14:45
too many cooks

Good to hear though, as the gpxe ITP looked freezed for some time

I've had my ltsp network up an running smoothly until now. I have one machine that will not allow users to login. It gets an ip from the server, goes to the login screen, but then I get this "no response from server", this is the only machine that does this, which is why I'm confused.
15:05
<alkisg>
I've also asked win32-loader to offer a "boot from network" option in the windows boot loader, and it depends on #474034... http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=607417
15:06
<m4xx>
jconlon, try running ltsp-update-sshkeys
15:06
<alkisg>
jconlon: do you get an entry in the server /var/log/auth.log for that client?
15:06
<jconlon>
checking now
15:10
sshd: refused connect from [ip adress]

hellz yes, got boot splash to work too =]

video=LVDS-1:d disables the LVDS output and makes bootsplash work with multihead =]]
