<toddobryan>
Hey, all. Can someone tell me how to run a desktop environment from inside the ltsp chroot? I'm running a lab of fat clients and I'd like to get everything set up in the image the way I want it and then build the image once I'm happy.
00:18
(I'm also open to other ways of dealing with stuff if people have suggestions.)
00:20
BTW, the computer club is here after school playing Open Arena in the lab. It's about 7:15pm and we're going until 8:00. Today was the last day of school before winter break, so we thought we'd have a LAN party.
00:23
Oh! I'm using Kubuntu 11.10 for the server system, in case that makes a difference.
00:27
<vagrantc>
toddobryan: you don't really run from the chroot ... just boot a fat client and update the packages till you get it right
00:30
<toddobryan>
One of the things I have to install is Eclipse. (I teach programming.) Unfortunately, there's not an easy way to install Eclipse plugins from the command line. It'd be much easier if I could just fire up the GUI.
00:31
<vagrantc>
that's on the mastermind plans for LTSP 6.0
00:31
<toddobryan>
Ah. So if there is a way to do it now, it's not easy?
00:32
<vagrantc>
still pretty much theory, i think...
00:32
<toddobryan>
I mean, I know it's possible to run GNOME and KDE from inside a chroot, because people do that to test new versions before installing them.
00:33
But I haven't found any easy-to-follow instructions.
00:33
<vagrantc>
yeah, but LTSP does some writeable stuff that would get overwritten on boot
00:34
<toddobryan>
Oh, right. I forgot about that.
00:34
OK. I guess I'll just fiddle until I get it right.
00:35
I'll probably move a terminal next to my server so there's less running around involved, though.
00:35
;-)
00:35
<vagrantc>
use a virtual machine for a terminal :)
00:37
<toddobryan>
Oh, that's an idea I hadn't thought of. Just install Virtual Box?
00:39
<vagrantc>
virtualbox or qemu or kvm ... whatever works :)

Thanks. I'll give everything a try next week.
00:54
This weekend, rest...
