<dsugar100>
Is anyone around who can answer some questions about getting ltsp going on Ubuntu 12.04?
01:58
I have (I think) done everything, and the workstation gets IP and PXE loads the kernel and initrd
01:59
But once it tries to connect to the nbd_server all I get is 'negotiation failed' on both server and client.
01:59
I can't seem to find this error listed anywhere. I'm hoping that someone might know how to help me.
02:00
I'm using x86_64 server and client.

hi

i run firefox as a localapp, but it looks ugly - it looks like it's not able to pick up gconf settings. LOCAL_APPS=TRUE, LOCAL_APPS_MENU=TRUE. Any ideas?

hi. the ltsp-cluter website: https://www.ltsp-cluster.org seems to be out of date or missing information. I would like to set up an ltsp-cluster environment for testing. Which Ubuntu distro is recommened currently? The link on ltsp-cluster.org for Ubuntu 9.10 seems out dated. Thanks for any advice.

mikec: it should work with 12.04, it was tested once during the 12.04 cycle, at least
17:10
mikec: there's no openvz in 12.04 but there's a guide that someone put together somewhere for doing it without openvz, should be foundable via google, if not, I'll go dig in my mail archives :)
17:11
<mikec>
ok. I'd much rather use a more recent release then 9.10! not sure i need openvz. we're a statistics department and we need real cpu cycles, so not sure virtualizing nodes is ideal for us
17:12
<highvoltage>
openvz doesn't take much more cycles, but indeed, you don't need it

qwebirc25943, one small idea. can you install lxappearance and set it as local app, then run it and hopefully have it save settings that firefox will use. it's a GTK theme chooser, with no dependency. else my first guess was try to copy those settings from server, with scp or something.
19:27
but, maybe the thin client needs to have gtk themes installed somehow. I remember same uglyness : I was using firefox remotely, server was ubuntu, client was windows.
19:29
with X server running on windows, just as what would happen with a X11 thin client, or a linux workstation running ssh -X
19:36
<dsugar100>
Does anyone know how (if it is possible) when running ltsp from an Ubuntu 12 server to have the login on the workstation to be same (click on a user vs. type in a username)?
19:38
<baptiste>
it's using ldm I believe?
19:42
<qwebirc25943>
batpiste, thank you for the idea about themes. I have installed gconf2 info chroot, then gnome-settings daemon. It seems to me that some settings are available to localapps, while the others are not. But maybe indeed the theme needs to be installed. Do you know the package names for standard pangolin themes?
19:43
<baptiste>
well I suggest you looking into what's in the ltsp chroot or image. on the client : get to know what processes are running (is it still ldm
19:44
oops.
19:45
for dugar100 : you can look into configuration of ldm, but it's probably somewhat basic and won't have the feature. at least you can have autologin, which should be doable based on the MAC address of the client
19:47
qwebirc25943, with apt-cache search gtk theme|sort|less, I've noticed a couple ones including human theme, better than nothing
19:49
with dpkg -l I've found mint-themes (because I'm running mint 13), it's great by the way, installing the mint gtk theme would be interesting on ubuntu 12.04
19:49
<qwebirc25943>
dsugar100: much of LTSP functionality is implemented as LDM scripts that run at user logon/logout; so, if you switch from LDM to another display manager (like the default U12, where you click on the name instead of typing it in), all that functionality will be lost. You can see those scripts at /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm
19:51
<dsugar100>
qwebirc25943: Thanks, I'll dig in a bit and see what I can figure out.
19:53
<qwebirc25943>
baptiste: thank you for your ideas and help, i will try out tomorrow
