hello
08:08
<davy>
i'm using ltsp on an ubuntu box and i try to figure out how to provide many languages to the users
08:11
when the user arrive on the ldm screen, if we want to choose the language the only choice is "default"
08:12
i tried to install some language packs on the server and in the chroot but it doesn't work
08:18
<robehend1>
out of my range, sadly :(

Hello, can someone help me with LTSP? Our teacher told us to install LTSP on our computer and do something with it. Unfortunately, my parter and me don't know how to install it or what we can use it for.

Hi guys, i have problems trying to boot a client on a recently and latest installation of LTSP5 on gentoo: http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/9297/ltsp5gentoo.png
10:39
any tip?
10:39
<alkisg>
No idea about Gentoo, but it looks like the cow mechanism didn't work
10:39
(before the screenshot you pasted)
10:40
So it's a read only file system, so the initscripts won't work properly
10:40
tmpfs + aufs, whatever Gentoo is using
10:41
<knipwim>
hmm, last time i checked, gentoo works out of the box
10:41
<[GuS]>
:S
10:41
<knipwim>
are you using this: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/LTSP ?
10:42
<[GuS]>
Indeed, is not the first time i install it on Gentoo, it is weird
10:43
should i rebuild the client?
10:43
<dberkholz>
i wonder if there's something unusual a bit farther up that would provide more detail on why that happened
10:45
<[GuS]>
And i cant see nothing on logs that can tell me that :S
10:46
<knipwim>
almost looks like ltsp-client-setup didn't start by default
10:46
but indeed, can't be sure
10:48
<crazed>
so if i have a thin client that supports a higher resolution than my monitors, how do i force the resolution size?
10:49
seems this thin client likes to default to 16:10 aspect ratio, when my monitor is 1920x1080 (1080p)
10:49[GuS] has quit IRC
10:49
<alkisg>
crazed: on the client, run: xrandr
10:49
And put the results to pastebin
10:50[GuS] has joined #ltsp
10:50
<[GuS]>
well, I wil try to build it again...
10:51
<crazed>
alkisg: http://ltsp.pastebin.com/SWcsb4E5
10:51komunista has quit IRC
10:51
<crazed>
eventually there will be two attached
10:52
<knipwim>
[GuS]: which version do you have?
10:52
<alkisg>
crazed: so your *current* resolution is 1920x1080, what resolution do you want?!
10:52
<knipwim>
of ltsp-server?
10:52
<crazed>
alkisg: i want that resolution, but on boot it comes up with 16:10, i had to attach a monitor capable and lower it to the right resolution to attach my monitors
10:52
<[GuS]>
knipwim: latest, as mention in the wiki
10:52
5.2.5
10:53bobby_C has joined #ltsp
10:53
<alkisg>
crazed: on boot? You mean the splash screen, before X is started?
10:53
<crazed>
even when X is started
10:53
<alkisg>
crazed: 16:10? What's the exact resolution?
10:53
<crazed>
i cannot see the ogin screen either
10:54
<knipwim>
check :)
10:54
<crazed>
alkisg: i'm not sure it does not say right now that i have the 1080p monitor attached
10:54
but if i am to reboot, i will get a "incompatible resolution" error on my monitors
10:55
<alkisg>
crazed: I'm not sure I'm following. So you're saying that when it boots it has a resolution greater than 1920x1080?
10:55
<crazed>
alkisg: yes, i blieve it is 1920 x 16:10
10:56
er 1920 x1200 *
10:56
<alkisg>
It would be listed in xrandr then. Weird.
10:56
But do try setting XRANDR_MODE_0=1920x1080 in lts.conf
10:56
And see if that fixes it
10:56
<crazed>
will that effect all thin clients
10:57
<alkisg>
If you put it under [Default], yes. If you put it under [Mac address], no.
10:57
<crazed>
ah true
10:57
let me give that a try

alkisg: hm i gave it a boot now it comes up as 1024x786 http://ltsp.pastebin.com/sCn6HHeF
11:19
<alkisg>
crazed: was the resolution different before you logged in? (i.e. in LDM)?
11:20
<crazed>
no
11:20
<alkisg>
From the same user/terminal, type: cat ~/.config/monitors.xml
11:20
<crazed>
it went to 1024x768 right away
11:20
the thin client term or from the server
11:20
<alkisg>
It doesn't matter as long as it is the same user
11:20
Do it on the thin client
11:21
Do you have such a file? (are you using gnome?)
11:21
<crazed>
alkisg: http://ltsp.pastebin.com/Tad2g9E5
11:21
i'm using gnome currently to fix this, but i usually use awesome, which basically will read gnome's settings
11:21
<alkisg>
crazed: ok. Now do: rm ~/.config/monitors.xml
11:21
Logoff and then logon again.
11:22
I think that the 1024x768 resolution was applied from your gnome settings
11:22
<crazed>
okay
11:24
alkisg: sweet, it's the right res now. now i need to reboot with the right monitor attached
11:24
and pray it works
11:30
alkisg: crap now it doesn't display 1920x1080 as an option in xrandr, 1360x768 is the highest
11:30
no monitors.xml
11:30[GuS] has quit IRC
11:30
<alkisg>
crazed: and are you sure this monitor supports 1920x1080?

11:34
<alkisg>
crazed: one simple way to check is to boot with the "good" monitor, and then switch to the "bad" monitor without rebooting
11:35
If it reports that it supports 1360x768 though, I doubt that it supports 1920x1080.
11:35
<crazed>
alkisg: it supports 1920x1080, i tried booting with the good and switching to the bad, everything is working this way
11:35
just seems annoying that i'd need to do that to use these
11:36
<alkisg>
crazed: ok. Then try this:
11:36
<crazed>
i couldn't boot with a standard 19inch monitor either
11:36
<alkisg>
In lts.conf, under that mac address section, keep XRANDR_MODE_0, but also add:

11:37
<crazed>
hm alright
11:37
<alkisg>
Reboot the client again, with the "bad" monitor plugged into it
11:37
<crazed>
will this fix the initrd image, or do i have to wait for ldm/x to get there before i should see results
11:37
<alkisg>
Wait for ldm/x
11:37
<crazed>
okay

alkisg: thank you tons
11:44
that worked perfectly
11:44
<alkisg>
Nice :)
11:44
It's a shame that monitors don't send correct EDIDs
11:44
<crazed>
i'm going to document this, cuz i know lots of people are going to have this issue in the future
11:44
<alkisg>
(or drivers can't collect them)
11:44
<crazed>
also who knows what's going to happen when i get my display port => dvi adapter to hook up my secon dmonitor lol
11:45
<alkisg>
Nice, put it in the wiki. The main idea is "tell X that the monitors supports very large timings, and use XRANDR_MODE_0 and XRANDR_RATE_0 to limit to the desired resolution"
11:46
If one put *exactly* the correct timings, then he won't need XRANDR_MODE_0 anymore
11:46
The correct one will be automatically used.
11:46
So after some experiments, you can only keep X_HORZSYNC / X_VERTREFRESH

i've updated the greeter to use glade and added options to hide language,session and shutdown options on popup menu. if anyone is interested. greeter.c: http://paste2.org/p/1236307 greeter.xml: http://paste2.org/p/1236313 greeter.glade: http://paste2.org/p/1236315

it used to use glade
14:49
heh
14:49
thought we switched away from it because it was too slow or something
14:49mutex has joined #ltsp
14:50
<m4xx>
i just thought it would be heplful because it would allow for customizing the theme further
14:51
it seems to load about as fast as the non glade version
