<PhoenixSTF>
hey guys, is there a way to limit which programs users can open like have a group for students and a group for teachers each one with a different set of programs?
02:27
<vagrantc>
nothing ltsp-specific...
02:27
could could probably use acls or something
02:29
<PhoenixSTF>
i knew that most probably that is nothing ltsp specific, but there could be some practical practices on the subject ;)
02:32
<vagrantc>
sure
02:44
<PhoenixSTF>
anyways I solved my issue with xubuntu ltsp, the session was set on default so the xsession manager would crash and not show the desktop to the client
02:55
<vagrantc>
PhoenixSTF: what exactly do you mean? leaving the session as default crashed the login manager? tell me more...
02:59
<PhoenixSTF>
well I installed the ltsp on xubuntu, and the backend session was on default, it gave me something like "x-session-maraner:CRITICAL:we failed, but the fail whale is dead. Sorry..." on the /var/log/syslog
02:59
so I changed it to the backend session and session to xubuntu and all went fine
03:00
<vagrantc>
in /var/log/syslog on the server?
03:00
<PhoenixSTF>
yes
03:00
<vagrantc>
maybe it was defaulting to unity-3d or something...
03:00
<PhoenixSTF>
tough so to, thats why I changed
03:00
anyway is running great now
03:01
<vagrantc>
great
03:01
just wanted to make sure there wasn't some failure in LDM or something
03:01
<PhoenixSTF>
just managing user lockdown is the next step, trying to show this at local schools and University to try and change their minds
03:02
ldm works fine ;)

Not much. :)

Lets say I have a thin client and a termina server and I want to play games on my thin client. is (when assuming that the pc isn't the bottleneck) it possible and what speed would need the network needed?

hi freestyller
21:05
<gbaman>
I personally wouldnt try playing high framerate games via a thinclient...
21:05
<RL600>
why not, what would be the limiting factor?
21:05
<gbaman>
if I was, would make sure it was on a gigabit network for more than a few clients
21:06
the limiting factor is the fact that the keyboard input you hit for the game, has to travel to the server, get processed and sent back to your client
21:06
takes a lot longer than normal
21:06
but the only way is to try it out!
21:07
<RL600>
Yes try it out!
21:07
but how much longer would it take?
21:07
would it be unplayable?
21:08
<gbaman>
depends on the game
21:08
<RL600>
let's say battlefield 4
21:08
on high settings
21:08
<gbaman>
I really wouldnt recommend something like that over thin clients...
21:09
<RL600>
ok clear! thanks for the answer
21:09
<gbaman>
Another major reason is what is actually doing the processing
21:09
<RL600>
I don't get u right now?
21:09
<gbaman>
I could be wrong on this, but, have a funny feeling to do thin client stuff, all graphics stuff is rendered by the processor instead of the gpu
21:10
*the server processor*
21:10
as it isnt a physical screen plugged into the server machine
21:10
that is fine for non demanding games
21:10
openarena is a good one that will likely work fine over thin client networks
21:10
<RL600>
so a graphic card on a terminal server would be a waste of money?
21:11
<gbaman>
from my own understanding, yes
21:11
but might be worth speaking with alksig, vagrantc as they are the experts
21:11
<RL600>
what is openarena
21:11
<gbaman>
neither are here currently though
21:11
Hyperbyte: knows stuff too :)
21:12
<RL600>
thanks for the answers I will come back later for the other ones
21:13
<gbaman>
good good
21:13
<RL600>
