Hello everyone! I'm trying to setup an Ubuntu LTSP image for a computer lab and I need some help

How do you configure the client login to use a local user instead of a user on the server? the reason is because I want to have a guest user for people that don't have a personal account. And this guest user will use a local home dir from the image so when the user logs out or reboot it doesn't retains any changes.
08:10
<alkisg>
Does you client have enough RAM or local storage for that?
08:10
Here's something else for guest sessions: http://marc.info/?l=ltsp-discuss&m=131098672722988
08:11
<salamak>
Yes! I'm using a fat client. And I have local storage and enough RAM!
08:12
<alkisg>
You'd need a special login script that does what you want, then
08:12
There's no upstream support for that in LTSP, but it shouldn't take more than e.g. 1 hour to create such a script
08:15
<salamak>
Please, any advice or recomendation would be welcomed. I'm lost now! hahahaha
08:16
<alkisg>
You need programming, not advice :)
08:16
Or, do what I wrote in the link above

<asbaeza>
Hi there. Does anybody know weather is it possible to use ultrathin clients with ltsp? These clients use rdp protocol (some of them use the citrix related protocols)
21:14
I ask this question because I saw a little tus over such a client in one of the ltps site's pics
21:25
<||cw>
depends. ltsp is mostly about getting diskless PXE clients going, from there it's whatever your server supports
21:25
in the default case, it's a linux distro with ssh+x11, but you could add rdp sevrer support to linux
21:27
but then you're not really using ltsp
21:29
<asbaeza>
Ok. But I can still use the services provided, or some of them? Can I manage some way these rdp terminals?
21:30
Or maybe should I acquire just diskless pc's in order to use all of the ltsp services?
21:30
<||cw>
"the services" is basically a collection of standard tools and a bunch of scripts to tie them together. if you're not booting pxe and running a linux on the think client, you're not using ltsp.
21:31
you're just using linux with remote users.
21:31
there's nothing to configure and manage. setup rdp, add system users, done.
21:32
<asbaeza>
Oh, I see. Thank you very much.
