Hi all!
10:09
can anyone say me where epoptes saves user configuration? I mean, when an epoptes user creates a group, where is it stored?
10:10
I say that because I have frozen profiles and perhaps I would create a template.
10:11
<alkisg>
~/.config/epoptes
10:11
cat .config/epoptes/groups.json

I'm having some oddness with Cups on a LTSP running on Ubuntu 12.04. Cups cannot see any printers on the network and states "scheduler is not running". Cupsd is running, though.

Good morning all,
14:56
i had an issue
14:57
when i tried to open firefoxs on different ltsp client machines at the same time.
14:57
that is not allowed by designed (now that i know)
14:58
so i tried to install firefox as localapps and hope that it will allow me to open multiple firefox with teh same user at the same time.
14:59
but i still have the same issue. Please let me repeat the issue is that i can not opent firefox on multiple client machine at the same time with the same user account.
15:00
<Zaphoid>
The problem is firefox uses settings from the users home directory, which is not stored locally, but in the users home directory on the LTSP server.
15:00
<TFDL>
<alkisg> was right to tell me that, that will not work (i tried:)
15:01
<alkisg> also tell me to look at building thin client kiosk mode image.
15:02
I have been trying to find the documentation for how to build thin client kiosk mode image but i have not found one (my arch is 10.04 x86)
15:02
so my question is:
15:03
can you please show me where i can find the documentation for building thin client kiosk mode image?
15:04
<Zaphoid>
I've not done this myself, but I know there is a --kiosk flag for ltsp-build-client.
15:05
<TFDL>
yes you are right with the issue Zaphoid, this is why i now go to building the new kiosk mode image.
15:05brunolambert has left IRC (brunolambert!~brunolamb@64.254.228.2, Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
15:05
<TFDL>
!kiosk
15:05
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'kiosk', but I do know about these similar topics: 'kiosk-lucid'
15:06
<Zaphoid>
!kiosk-lucid
15:06
<ltsp>
kiosk-lucid: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ltsp/+bug/572974
15:06
<TFDL>
Zaphoid: so i just add the flag --kiosk to it?
15:06
<vagrantc>
Zaphoid: why must you use the same user?
15:07
<Zaphoid>
Yes, but I do not know in all the ways that changes the setup.
15:07
vagrantc: That's what TFDL is trying to do, not me.
15:07
But that is a good question.
15:08
<TFDL>
vagrantc: that was because we use the same content. we do not need many users.
15:08
we user the client workstation as display
15:08
not workstation
15:09
sorry, i did not mention it all
15:09
we use them as a kiosk, nothing to save or change by the users.
15:09
did i answer your question Zaphoid?
15:10
<Zaphoid>
TFDL: I'd try kiosk mode with guest user auto login.
15:11
<TFDL>
we use ltsp thin client to display information (web application) to users and not as workstations.
15:11
ok
15:11
Zaphoid but can you please show me where i can get instruction to build kiosk image?
15:12
<Zaphoid>
ltsp-build-client --kiosk
15:12brunolambert has joined IRC (brunolambert!~brunolamb@64.254.228.2)
15:12
<TFDL>
ok
15:12
<Zaphoid>
But, again, I don't know ALL the differences that makes in the built image, so I cannot say with certainty that that will do what you want it to do, but from reading, it should.
15:12
<TFDL>
so just the flag like vagrantc said.
15:12
<Zaphoid>
TFDL: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxKiosk has some information and links, though it is incomplete
15:13
<TFDL>
ok i will keep searching
15:13
<Zaphoid>
Personally, I'd just build it and try to see what happens.
15:14
<TFDL>
thanks Zaphoid i will try
15:15
Thanks Vagrantc!
15:18
<vagrantc>
the --kosk plugin is relatively straightforward code
15:18
<TFDL>
ok, will read the details too.
15:19
<vagrantc>
it basically installs a browser, minimal wndw manager, and some scripts to run fullscreen
15:19
ad then you use SCREEN_07=kiosk
15:19
i did rewrite a bunch of it to create the users at runtime, rather than chroot creation time
15:20
which made it much simpler
15:20
i don't remember what version the rewrite made it into
15:21
<TFDL>
yes
15:23
Thanks, i just wish we have documentation. I understand it the time we need.

Hey all, I am using xfce4 and am having trouble figuring out which xinitrc the client uses when it starts (I am assuming it is using an xinitrc file).. can anyone help point me in the right direction to figure this out?
22:42
I am guessing it would it be either xinitrc in the arch chroot, /usr/share/ltsp/, or the /etc/xdg/xfce4/ ...but not really sure which or how ltsp talks to it
22:46
<vagrantc>
kev_j: /etc/X11/Xsession
22:47
at least on denian/ubuntu
22:47
other dostros have their own xsesson files

ok, I am using debian, and I don't know how I missed that one when I was listing them since I actually looked at it earlier, but I am just getting confused on the xdg/xfce4/ one
22:55
is it possible that it is using both?
23:02
I feel like that's a stupid question, but I don't know for sure, so...
