Hello, I am trying to find someone who can help me get Japanese language input working with local apps
09:50
or any alternate input language actually.
09:50
the app is firefox but I think this is a question that would apply to any local app

ok, how about location for setting up logoff hooks?

11:00
some software i'm trying to install needs it
11:00
to run properly

Hello . . .
13:23
What are different types of multi user configurations are avaliable other than LTSP and Multiseat?
13:24
Is there a way to configure so that multiple users can be logged into one session?
13:25
<elias_a_>
Why do you want to do that?
13:28
<Technicus>
Because there is a program our group would like to couch at the same time, rather than being stuck at one terminal with one set of input devices.
13:28
*couch = touch
13:30
It the progrram is for displaying statistical analysis with bargraphs and such. We would like to be able to point and hilight different parts, as different users wet be interactive at the same time.
13:31
*wet = we want to
13:33
Previously we had looked at this but since put it on the back burner . . . our previous research has been misplaced. We did discover a company ( not remembering which ) but the company installed Linux at the Sheboygan Library. We were trying to find out what that company was again.
13:34
Do you know?

Technicus: sounds like something you might be able to use synergy for
14:25
<alkisg>
Technicus: you want to have multiple mice cursors and multiple points of focus? I don't think there's anything for that
14:25
If you just want to give 10 mice to 10 users, and all of them to be able to move *only* one cursor, you can just use a usb hub
14:28
<abeehc>
or vnc shared session(s)?

howdy!
15:47
is there any way to make nbdrootd/ldminfod/nbdswapd bind to the inside interface only?
15:48
<vagrantc>
Q-FUNK: just firewall it off
15:48
but there might be another way
15:48
/etc/hosts.allow, probably?
15:50
though i think with both it will still technically bind to all interfaces, just not respond on some, if that's good enough
15:51
<HrdwrBoB_>
pretty sure you can define it in the xinetd conf file
15:51
<vagrantc>
maybe in /etc/inetd.conf, for non xinetd implementations
15:54

what doesn't use xinetd now?

15:59
i like xinetd better, though ... but it's not something i'd spend a lot of time to get fixed in debian
15:59
at least, it's configuration system is so much simpler, especially for packages
16:00
<HrdwrBoB>
ah
16:00
someone claims xinetd is GPL incompatible
16:00
<vagrantc>
that could do it
16:00
<HrdwrBoB>
but all the other distros use it
16:01
<vagrantc>
it's in main... hm.

on my long TODO list in my head, i've meant to at least make the LTSP components work with either openbsd-inetd or xinetd

huh. xinetd hasn't been updated in debian since lenny ...
16:24
is it that stable, or is debian just behind?

2.3.14 ...
16:26
it hasn't made a new release since 2005 ... huh.
