I am running suse edu-life 12.2 and did a very regular update last wednesday and the thin clients have been unable to get to the login screen although they do get an ip address via dhcp. I have been looking online and trying fixes but terminal always fails at "pxe-T00: permission denied" Any help would be appreciated. This is a school environment

Guest66693, hey
15:08
you should check the permission of the directories/files at your tftpboot directory
15:09
take a look at your system's logs
15:28
<Guest66693>
done that
15:29
changed the permission to 777 and turned off the firewall but nothing worked

Hi... I'm new to ltsp. I installed it on an ubuntu 13 desktop and I'm using a Raspberry Pi for my thin client. Everything seems to be functioning except on my desktop on the thin client I have nothing... no menu bar, no task bar
16:02
I don't know what to do to get a funtional desktop

16:05
<ltspuser_93>

16:06
<muppis>
ltspuser_93, well.. You came back, but there's lot of people who doesn't if not responded in a minute.
16:07
And to your problem. What you do got in client? Have you build chroot for normal PC to test working at first place?
16:07
<ltspuser_93>
I see... I don't do IRC.. I accidentally clicked the #ltsp button and dropped out
16:07
so I came back in
16:08
should I repost my question?
16:08
<muppis>
No need to. It still visible.
16:09
<ltspuser_93>

16:10
<muppis>
ltspuser_93, 19.07:45 < muppis> And to your problem. What you do got in client? Have you build chroot for normal PC to test working at first place?
16:11
<ltspuser_93>
I did a ltsp-build-client
16:12
when my TC boots I get a login screen. I log in and I get a desktop with a background... nothing else
16:12
I can right click and create folders then navigate to apps through that and start them... but I don't have any menu bars
16:15
<muppis>
Looks like it's trying to use Unity as desktop, which afaik not working. Try installing Gnome Shell to server.
16:17
<ltspuser_93>
I tried this and it still does the same thing chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get install gnome-shell
16:18
<muppis>
Not in chroot. To server it self.
16:18
<ltspuser_93>
oh... ok
16:20
it wants to know if I want to use gdm or lightdm... is it ok to use lightdm
16:21
<muppis>
Should be, because neither is used anyway. :D
16:23
!gnome-shell
16:23
<ltsp>
gnome-shell: To select gnome-shell as your default session, put this line in your lts.conf: LDM_SESSION="gnome-session --session=gnome"
16:24
<muppis>
!lts.conf
16:24
<ltsp>
lts.conf: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/lts.conf
16:34
<ltspuser_93>
I tried your suggestions and when I select the "Gnome" session it errors with "Failed to load Gnome session"

<muppis>
I haven't tried does this work, but you can try this: Put LDM_SESSION="xterm" to lts.conf and you should get a terminal window after login. The try launch that gnome-session --session=gnome from there
