plinet?
13:22
<alkisg>
Phantomas complained that it bothered him to type a<tab>: instead of just a<tab> :D So I put my office title in front (just some greek initials meaning IT office that supports schools)...
13:22
<Phantomas>
:p
13:23
alkisg: you can fill a bug report to pidgin if you have a problem :P :P
13:43

<ltspuser_37>
hello
19:03
<alkisg>
Hi
19:03Bootless has joined IRC (Bootless!~AnDyLap@ip-90-186-0-103.web.vodafone.de)
19:03
<ltspuser_37>
I want to build a ltsp client which starts a java application fullscreen
19:03Bootless has left IRC (Bootless!~AnDyLap@ip-90-186-0-103.web.vodafone.de, Client Quit)
19:04
<ltspuser_37>
please help me,
19:07
<alkisg>
You'll need to learn enough about LTSP to be able to write a small screen script for this. We can't help you without you deploying LTSP first, then reading its code a bit, then trying, and asking specific questions when you get stuck somewhere...
19:09
<ltspuser_37>
great
19:11
Actually I succeeded to build a ubunut machine that’s starting a java application after startup And for that i used ubunut server 10.10 And for that i user TWM-kiosk
19:15
Here is the startup script Under /etc/X11/twm/KİOSK-DEFAULT #!/bin/sh # X blank screen /usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off /usr/X11R6/bin/xset -dpms # java application startup /usr/bin/fidsclient start ignore & # Background image /usr/X11R6/bin/xli -onroot /opt/fids/resources/image.jpg # hide mouse /usr/X11R6/bin/unclutter -root -idle 1
19:16
Do it is possible to do that under $CHROOT
19:17bobby_C has joined IRC (bobby_C!~bobby@85-124-22-227.teleworker.xdsl-line.inode.at)
19:18
<alkisg>
Sure
19:23
<ltspuser_37>
Ok then, What about the lts.conf ; Can you advice the configuration.
19:24
<alkisg>
[Default]
19:24
SCREEN_07=myjavaapp
19:24
That's all about lts.conf
19:25
<ltspuser_37>
thanks man
19:25
i think also i need to add auro login
19:25
because this application will be used on airport
19:26
<alkisg>
myjavaapp will start before a display manager
19:26
So you don't need to login
19:26
The default is SCREEN_07=ldm, the display manager
19:26
By putting SCREEN_07=myjavaapp, you don't need to login anymore
19:27
<ltspuser_37>
i see
19:28
If this will succeed , you will save as to buy 600 new client 
19:28
:)
19:28
because the new java application need much CPU resources
19:29
<alkisg>
So it can't run locally?
19:29
<ltspuser_37>
and the exisitng client has got AMD 500 mhz
19:29
<alkisg>
Then SCREEN_07=myjavaapp won't do, you'll need autologin instead
19:30
And you have enough server CPU to power 600 clients?
19:30
<ltspuser_37>
yes :)
19:30
we are updating the DATA Center that we have now
19:30
<alkisg>
OK, then do it as you said, with autologin + full screen java app running on the server
19:31
That's not related to the chroot, it runs on the server
19:31
<ltspuser_37>
and i planned to use the chnaged server for this project
19:31
<alkisg>
LDM_SESSION or LDM_XSESSION can help you there
19:32
<ltspuser_37>
can you provide me your email to send you a full idea about the issue
19:32
please
19:34
<alkisg>
You can send emails to the ltsp discuss mailing list, you might get answers there
19:39
(10:38:37 μμ) ltspuser_37: it is possible to run a java application that need at list 1ghz cpu
19:39
(10:38:53 μμ) ltspuser_37: on the currrent client that we have
19:39
You can try!
19:39
You can also try running them manually on the server and see if it's good enough for you
19:39
Once you see that it works the way you want it, then you can look for automating it with autologin etc
19:41
<ltspuser_37>
ok i will procceed like that , and thanks for your help
19:41
<alkisg>
you're welcome
