<_UsUrPeR_>
hey all
15:00
I have a scripting question pertaining to LTSP and the boot process
15:00
I am attempting to use gdb to see why freeRDP is not working properly during boot

15:21leio has joined IRC (leio!~leio@gentoo/developer/leio)
15:26
<Gadi>
_UsUrPeR_: gdb? why not just run an xterm and see the output? or pipe the output to a file?
15:27
<_UsUrPeR_>
gadi: according to the people in #freerdp, a backtrace is requires
15:27
err required
15:27
<Gadi>
ah
15:27
so, you already know it segfaults
15:27
<_UsUrPeR_>
Gadi: correct
15:27
strangely enough: when running freeRDP 1.0 in an X session once logged in, it works great
15:28
I think using xinit to start freerdp is what's causing the issue
15:28
<Gadi>
perhaps it wants a window manager
15:28
have you tried installing xfwm or some such
15:28
and running that before freerdp?
15:29
well, I guess all that is guesswork, but I would still run an xterm session
15:29
<_UsUrPeR_>
I have not. I have never even heard of xfwm :)
15:29
<Gadi>
and use that to play
15:29
<ogra_>
_UsUrPeR_, only odl farts have
15:29
*old
15:29
<Gadi>
old farts?
15:29
:)
15:30
<ogra_>
:)
15:30
<Gadi>
what does xfce use these days?
15:30
unity?
15:30
:P
15:30
<ogra_>
who uses xfwm without xfce nowadays ? :P
15:30* Gadi reflects on how unity is the answer to everything these days
15:30
<ogra_>
yeah
15:30
unify the world in unity *g*
15:30* _UsUrPeR_ weeps
15:31
<_UsUrPeR_>
I have to say, I am not enamored by the newer default desktops
15:31* ogra_ still waits for fedora to release "diversity" :)
15:31
<ogra_>
where systemd will draw your window frames !
15:32* Gadi keeps close eye on "anarchy"
15:32
<ogra_>
heh
15:32
<_UsUrPeR_>
ok, so lets review: I will install xfwm, then what?
15:33
<ogra_>
you could also just take metacity
15:33
<Gadi>
when logical frameworks just dont do the job
15:33
:)
15:33
_UsUrPeR_: yeah, or use metacity
15:33
if it is already there
15:33Gremble has joined IRC (Gremble!~Ben@cpc10-aztw24-2-0-cust114.aztw.cable.virginmedia.com)
15:33
<Gadi>
ie, if it is a fat client chroot
15:33
but, first and foremost, just replace "freerdp" with "xterm"
15:34
<_UsUrPeR_>
Gadi: It's not a full installation, just normal ltsp + a few packages required for freerdp
15:34
<Gadi>
so you get a screen with just an xterm
15:34
once you have a screen with an xterm,
15:34
you can either use gdb, or install/run a window manager
15:35
or whatever
15:35
to see whats going on
15:38
<_UsUrPeR_>
hmm
15:38
ok

16:56
<_UsUrPeR_>
gadi: so that I am understanding this process correctly, when you suggest that I replace "freerdp" with "xterm", do you mean in /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ltsp/screen.d/?
16:58
Gadi: or do you mean replace the xfreerdp executable with a simlink to xterm?
16:59
<Gadi>
_UsUrPeR_: if you create a symlink for xterm in that directory pointing to the same place (rdesktop, is it?), then you should be able to set SCREEN_07=xterm
16:59
and have it just come up to an xterm
16:59
I think
17:00
alternatively, just find where it executes the command in the screen script and change it to xterm temporarily

17:03
<_UsUrPeR_>
Gadi: here's what I have right now -- http://pastebin.com/Zdu2xFi5
17:03
I just replaced the executables in /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ltsp/screen.d/rdesktop and copied it for execution
17:04
then set screen_03 = freerdp
17:04
it executes, but there's... problems
17:06
specifically, I can _see_ the mouse cursor, but unlike rdesktop, freerdp never actually brings up a Windows logon screen
17:07
it kind of behaves like rdesktop does when there's no route to the windows server
17:16alkisg has joined IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg)
17:16
<Gadi>
that is way to complicated
17:17
just run: xinit -- ${DISPLAY} vt${TTY} ${X_ARGS} -br >/dev/null 2>&1
17:17
that will bring up an xterm
17:17
from the xterm, do any of your gdb stuff
17:19
<alkisg>
In newer LTSP or Ubuntu versions, there's also an xterm screen script included
17:19
So you can just put SCREEN_07=xterm

Hello! Do I need to have LOCALDEV and USB set to true in order to use printers with rdesktop/freerdp?
23:50
<vagrantc>
localdev is for mounting localdevices and usb sticks and such
23:51
i'm not too familiar with how to integrate all that with rdesktop or freerdp
23:53
i *think* you'd add the appropriate printer commandline options with your RDP_* variables
23:58
<neho>
vagrantc, yes I already did and installing cups with drivers
23:58
hope it will work
23:59
If I use freerdp I need to use RDP_SERVER and RDP_OPTIONS or are they only for rdesktop?
