vishal_: did you download the file that is missing?
ya i have downloaded the file
Where did you put it?
Don't put it there, put it in the chroot
tell me how to put and command
so that it is easy for me
ya i put over there only
files are there
And then what did you do?
noting i restart dhcp and booted client
You need to run ltsp-update-image
ya i have done that
Is the script executable?
|00:18||Faithful has quit IRC|
Run this, what's the output? ls -l /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ltsp/kioskSession
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12412 2011-02-24 16:54 /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ltsp/kioskSession
this is the output
It's too big
The correct size is 671 bytes
You didn't download the correct file
tell me the command through which i ca dowload this file
should i remove this file
Just open the link with your browser
The link to the file is mentioned to the bug report
when i clieck on that link it open one file
shoud i copy that file from there
because there is no dowload option
There's a 'download file' to the right
when i clienk on download file it is giving me the download for ubuntu server
shoud i manually copy that file ad copt it
Here is the link you should click: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ltsp-upstream/ltsp/ltsp-trunk/download/head:/kiosksession-20100126175421-j3qe71nsxfopg3p6-1/kioskSession
the u tell me how to do that
That's the 'download file' link
I don't know why you didn't see it
ya now i got that file
ow what to do tell me
I don't have time to tell you how to copy files
Just copy it to its place and run ltsp-update-image
It's just basic shell commands...
and basic browser usage...
I need to write a paper, bbl
If you want, write a comment to the bug report
Saying that you experienced the bug and that you'd like a backported fix for it
i have done that but client is still bootig with ubutu screen not getting firefox

if m going to rum ltsp as kiosk mode
do i need to install firefox on the same machine or it will take auto when i run this command
Firefox gets automatically installed in the chroot
|02:47||dobber has joined #ltsp|
is it neccessary to insall ltsp on server or we can install it on desktop version also
You can install it in any variant
k i can install ltsp on 10.04 server also or desktop also no matter right
Usually the alternate cd is used. Then the desktop. The server is not usually used.
As the server CD lacks a desktop, which is required for clients - maybe not for kiosk though
At first time I used server CD. First install ltsp, then desktop. Worked fine.
Maybe for the kiosk a desktop isn't even needed on the server. Just X/firefox on the chroot.
muppis: was it you asking about converting a local installation to ltsp yesterday?
alkisg, yes, but I got problem fixed other way round. But if you got an answer, please tell.
Sure the answer is "nope - unless you manually do what the ltsp-build-client plugins do" :)
But you can convert it to a *non-ltsp* fat client easily
diskeless-client, so to speak.

question about printers
i have one central cups server running on 192.168.1.1 in my network
my tc server is at ip 192.168.1.6
hey i have done all the trouble shooting which is written in bugs
but user is not booting withh firefox
tell me what i do
the tcs should use the same printers defined on 192.168.1.1.. how should i set up this? point all the tcs to the cups server at 192.168.1.1 or set up cups on 192.168.1.6 and then just forward requests to 192.168.1.1?
i've tried the latter, but am unable to print
Processing - "Unable to get printer status (Bad Request)!"
ltsp with kiosk mode is not working with ubuntu 10.04
navn: are you vishal from before?
zamba: do you have localapps involved?
If not, then it's just plain printer sharing, you share your cups printer to the ltsp server, nothing more...
yes, we are friends doing the same project
now what we did , we have installed 10.04 server on that ltsp , but noting is working fine
alkisg: i don't at the moment, but i may in time
navn: just follow what's written on the bug report
There's no other source of information
If you didn't manage to get it working, comment it on the bug report
alkisg: so how should i set up the printer sharing?
alkisg: is it enough with just one cups server running at the central location?
alkisg: but how do the tc server know about it?
On the cups server you check "publish this printer on the network"
There's nothing ltsp-specific about it, usual cups sharing
|04:38||dlezcano has quit IRC|
alkisg: that's all i need to do?
alkisg: i don't have to set up the printers on the tc server?
Right, and you might also need to check "use network printers" on the ltsp server
alkisg: where do i do that?
It's not ltsp related, you can find it at the first result on google :)
but can i then just remove the cups installation on the tc server?
cups is preinstalled
but i can just remove it? isn't that what you're saying?
You need the cups client to access the cups server
Not sure if you can remove "cups" and keep "cups-client"
but i can remove all printers added on the tc cups and just tick the "show printers shared by other systems"?
For local apps it's a different story, leave it for when you need it
You might install cups in the chroot, or you can use jetpipe, whatever you want
argh, i hate the ACL stuff for cups

i install ltsp in fedora 14 and it is work good when all client there are in a same switch
but i have 4 switch ,which each switch have subnet mask and special range address for client connected to this switch
and client in other switch can not access to ltsp server and boot from it
mahdi_ja, switches does not have ip'r or range's except for management. ; do you have 4 network cards on your machine? each conencted to a different switch ?
sep, no i must have 4 nic for my switch ?
mahdi_ja, how are the switches conencted to the server ?
sep, with core switch
adn when you say that the switch have a different subnet mask and range what are you talking about ?
all devices in the same network should have the same subnet mask. and the range (dhcp range) are set on the ltsp server, and does not relate to what switch a device is connected to
well set on the dhcp server atlest. not nessecarily the ltsp server
sep, for test i add a client and test ltsp,test pc is a client of a one switch which connected to the server
sep, but why i can not connect to the ltsp server
mahdi_ja: describe your network topology better. Is it ltsp server <=> core switch <=> 4 other switches <=> clients?
use the client that functions. and test each switch so you know if you have a problem with your network. if that works. check the config for the client that does not work on the ltsp server
And the client works when you connect it where? To the core switch?
Or is it ltsp server <=> 1 switch, with the working client <=> core switch <=> 3 other switches ?
alkisg, but for test i do not user pc behind core switch and user client a pc behind a switch
mahdi_ja: I lost you, repeat that sentence without saying the word "not"
alkisg, yes in my lan there is a windows dhcp server and the get ip address
mahdi_ja: it looks like you have a complicated setup
You need to describe it a lot better in order to have useful answers
And also, if you have VLANs on your core switch, mention those too
alkisg, i see full document of my lan and go back
alkisg, thank you
alkisg, hi again
alkisg, i have 4 switch with a same subnet mask 255.255.0.0
and i with 6 vlan
I think fedora uses duplicate IPs for the ltsp server
One the real one, e.g. 10.160.31.10, and one for the ethernet alias, e.g. eth0:1, e.g. 192.168.0.1
So you need to configure your VLANs to allow that traffic
I don't know the details, I've never used fedora
fedora create a virtual bridge for ltsp and the connect it to the network card
for example brctl addif ltspbr0 eth1
default range ip address is 172.31.100.0/24
There's only 1 physical IP there, isn't it?
So it uses an ethernet alias to provide a virtual second one?
And then it bridges them together?
*1 physical NIC, sorry
two nic one for client and another for connect to internet (for example)
OK anyway I don't know how fedora handles its network
Just make sure that the traffic can reach your clients
alkisg, thank you.

alkisg, why i can not ping other client but other client can not access to my dhcp
alkisg, sorry why i can ping other client but other client can not access to my dhcp
Sorry, this bridging/aliases etc is fedora specific, I don't know the exact setup
alkisg, sorry thank you and goodbye

is there any way to specify how ltsp-build-client does it's job?
like i want a minimal desktop environment should i build it the way i want it on the client then run ltsp-build-client?
because using the lucid lynx desktop is kind of overkill for what i'm after
i suppose you could pull that off with a fat client
thin clients or fat clients?
really i want a fat client setup since the server isn't really able to handle the 30 or so instances of firefox i'll need running
ff is a bugger; my server handles a good 25 and it's not exactly a monster
but you'll notice in the ltsp-build-client.conf it instructs you to create
maybe chromium might be better
you can speficiy the FAT_CLIENT_DESKTOPS param
i think you can use most of the meta packages like xubuntu-desktop
I'm pretty sure chromium is much lighter; but I've not been brave enough to take a run at it
ff isn't so bad; mostly flash is what rips my server
yeah i just wish i had more fine tuning abilities when builing an image
the script does accept some arguments but not too many
i don't like that i have to use a script to go and download a bunch of what is essentially bloat for what i need it for
i left the server at work building a --kiosk image so we'll see how that works
this may not be the solution for you
and in any case apt-proxy is nice
i've been having the wierdest problems with thin client images though, they boot up and log in fine but it looks like they aren't interacting with the desktop at all, but if i use ctrl+alt+left and right to swich between desktops the screens get "refreshed" and what I was trying to do pops u[
so for instance i'll hit the firefox button, looks like nothing happened, switch to desk2 then back to desk1 and ff is waiting for me
