hi anyone who can help with getting lightdm to pass username and password using pam_exec
15:37
<Hyperbyte>
joshu, you realize itÅ's saturday, right? You should be out there, painting the town purple!
15:38
<joshu>
Hyperbyte lol I wish I could, but I'm on a tight deadline to have this working so I have no choice but to slave in front of the computer and try tog et somewhere by trial and error :(
15:38
I haven't done this stuff before some I'm flying blind
15:39
<Hyperbyte>
Well, I can't help you though... I have no clue what pam_exec is, nor do I know anything about the inner workings of lightdm.
15:40
Maybe it would help if you elaborated a bit, on what you're trying to accomplish and how it relates to LTSP
15:41
<joshu>
I found this on github https://github.com/opinsys/ltsp-lightdm/blob/master/hack/etc/pam.d/lightdm
15:42
I'm trying to get something similar working but with xfreerdp and as I was LTSP specific I thought I'd ask her
15:43
<Hyperbyte>
I have no idea what that file does.
15:43
But I guess, youÅ're trying to process an xfreerdp login via lightdm, correct?
15:43
<joshu>
Hyperbyte exactly
15:44
<Hyperbyte>
Yey!
15:45
Now the bigger question. Why aren't you just displaying a login prompt on the remote machine, inside the rdp session?
15:46
<joshu>
Not sure I follow. You mean connect via RDP first and then display the Windows login prompt?
15:46
<Hyperbyte>
Yeah. Doesn't Windows do that by default?
15:47
<joshu>
yes it does but I'm trying to simplify life for my users so that they login once only
15:47
<Hyperbyte>
Ah... they first log in to Linux and then start RDP session alongside their Linux desktop?
15:47
<joshu>
yes
15:51
<Hyperbyte>
Well, it all sounds like something really useful
15:51
Unfortunately I have no idea how to accomplish it.
15:52
<joshu>
no worries..so why aren't you out enjoying yourself :P
15:52
<Hyperbyte>
I'm presenting a radio show right now. :)
15:53
Which, to me, means I'm enjoying myself. ;-) Just inside.
15:53
<joshu>
hehe radio show really
15:57
<Hyperbyte>
:)
16:31
<joshu>
Hyperbyte you still here?

16:31
<joshu>
can you please tell me what does the content of /usr/share/ltsp/ltsp-session look like I can't find an example online
16:37
<alkisg>
joshu: you need to do that with lightdm, or LDM (=ltsp specific) will also do?
16:37
Because ltsp doesn't work with lightdm by default...
16:37
<joshu>
hi alkisg lightdm if possible
16:37
I'm getting closer but not there yet
16:38
<alkisg>
Then the issue isn't really related to LTSP, maybe you should ask in #ubuntu instead
16:38
<joshu>
I can get the username and password echoed to a textile, but now I need to figure out how to start the session from pam
16:39
<alkisg>
vmlintu or asmok here have implemented lightdm + ltsp integration, if you see them around you could ask them
16:39
With kerberos single sign on for other services etc
16:39
<joshu>
ok thanks alkisg

joshu, yeah, I'm still here... but like I said, I have no experience with anything you're trying.
