!fatclients | echo ebzzry
ebzzry fatclients: You may find some info about the Ubuntu/LTSP implementation of fat clients at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FatClients
I think Debian doesn't yet have such a plugin, you need to do it manually
alkisg: can you point me the right direction, please?
ebzzry: read that wiki page above, then see what the ubuntu plugin does, and do it on debian
Let me get you the plugin link...
You can't just execute it, it won't work, you'd need to modify it first. E.g. debian doesn't have an "ubuntu-desktop" package.
alkisg: OK. Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
Does anyone know if someone has successfully done this before?

How are you?
We're almost ready to make a 0.1 release for panoptes, the new computer lab administration tool
A bit under the weather but good :). And you?
If you'd have some free time to proof-read our lame english captions, it'd be great
Make sure you have a wikipedia page that has the pronunciation of panoplies!
It can be installed simultaneously with sch-scripts, if you want to use the school server
lame, yea right!
For sure :)
We put the text on launchpad, if you have an account there you could also do it there
Or you could just look at the UI, it's probably simpler
The problem is that if we write something wrong, and people translate it, and we then correct it, all the translations will need to be changed too :(
UI would get me to try it as well...
Well, I can do whatever, just let me know what works best for you.
Whenever you're ready, today, some other day, ping me to give you a .deb + instructions
It's much easier to setup that sch-scripts, no big dependencies
And it doesn't even require ltsp
I can do it later this AM--in a few hours.
|12:31||ogra_ has left IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org, Excess Flood)|
I'm excited to check it out!
Nice - I'll have a .deb ready
It doesn't even need sudo to run anymore ;)
|12:33||ogra_ has joined IRC (email@example.com)|
On a semi-related note, is it possible to get ltsp to load over the web? In other words, can I get a client to boot at my house in an Xtem I guess, using the school's server? It's OK if it's s-l-o-w.
dgroos, it'll be sssss-lllll-ooooo-wwwwww.
use NX to speed things up...
Remote X is uncompressed.
alkisg: Error: "freenx" is not a valid command.
alkisg: nx: http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/WorkInProgress#NX or http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/FreeNX
Hm. Nah, not really, those are too old
dgroos, what you really want, is what alkisg is suggesting, and that's FreeNX. But it won't actually 'boot' your machine at home, you'll have to boot some OS that can launch the FreeNX client and connect to your LTSP server
I do have openNX access already to the server.
Why would you want ltsp (and not just an NX connection) over the web?
What I want to see is how the menu's load on a fat client. I'm trying to remove some menu items and need to test it.
You can use nx to connect, and then vbox to load a fake fat client
It'll be much faster
xbox is like busybox I'd guess? I did use that one time...
vbox == virtualbox
xbox is a gaming system from Microsoft.
Something like vmware if you heard it
I load virtualbox?
Yes, download it from there and install it in your ltsp server
Then download and install the extensions from the same page
Then create a client, give it e.g. 512 MB RAM so that it's a fat client, and go to its system settings, and select network boot first
Basically you'll be booting a virtual thin client inside a virtual machine on a virtual desktop running on an LTSP server. =)
When prompted to create a virtual hard disk for the client, select no.
Great! I'll give this a go after I look at some Eglaish translitionz later this monring. ;)
Thanks Hyperbyte and alkisg
VDI on an LTSP box... ^^

if you're using NBD (default on ubuntu), you'll need to run ltsp-update-image after every change to your theme
I found the solution at http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KIWI-LTSP_tips_and_tricks#Changing_LDM_theme, is not a new theme but only an ovrwrite of two images... Thanks anyway!

this local boot would be on an ide flash card

Nubae - pxe over wifi?
not even i am stupid enought to try and make that work
jejeje, I didn't know pxe over wifi even worked?
my idea was morea along the lines of wirelss point to wireless point which contains network swtiches (probably with pxe)
since its just 5-10 computers that need this, we could probably use this model
at the risk of to mutch latency ... yes.. it might be
ive seen it once, - but than again im a complete newb to ltps
latency schmatenchy, its a school, kids dont exactly treat the computers as they should be treated
WEll, I'dve done it once, but just with 4 computers
ive been using that other operating system with termial services, and with remote booting but not with ltsp

Nubae - NO i was refering to that non linux os out there... the one providing ma an unbearable agany each and every working day
oh no, dont even mention the word
its better than no job at all - but not by a long shot
I find that each OS or computer, no matter where I go, provides me agony each and every working day.
Hyperbyte - hmmmz i guess you could argue that, and i might even have to agree, BUT to some extend one os provides more of it than others
ichat, it all depends on what you use the OS for.
I use Windows for two things. Gaming and audio editing.
Works great, never have any problems.
I use Linux for every day work, and every day I'll run into something which annoys me. ;-)

Nubae: i'm not saying that kiwi-ltsp is a bad thing, it's just difficult to support because everything is done so differently from other distros.
difficult to support for people familiar with ltsp but not the specifics of kiwi-ltsp
as often as not, the upstream recommended way of doing something is done completely differently with kiwi-ltsp ... this is not inherrently wrong or bad, and like you say, some of it might even be improvements
but it's also done in a way with little to no hope of merging those improvements upstream.
and that is unfortunate.

on anohter note, whats been brewing in that brain of yourse#?
Last hink I heard you were expanding facilities or something
just been keeping pace with the relatively slow developments in LTSP, and picking up a few more debian packages to maintain, really.
Nubae: i've largely been getting increasingly interested in the rather broken Certificate Authority system, and worked on packaging perspectives and convergence for debian as hopeful alternatives ... though my heart is with monkeysphere.
vagrantc - isn't any thing releated to 'mutual trust' relatively broken
by design i mean
ichat: there are degrees of broken
having a completely violated trust result in no action because the consequences are too large is problematic
any not being able to limit your trust by scope is also problematic

update the image and... it should work?
i guess so
i tough you tried that last week
I've got a client booting on the server in a virtualbox via NX from my house. Very virtual.
Yea, and I don't think I move 'everything'--I'll try that now.
virtualization can be nice :) and nx is nice too.
the tar for the menu should be extracted as well in the directory /etc/edubuntu-menueditor/mrgg/
