Hi, I successfully installed LTSP on Debian 8 and have been able to connect from a client via PXE-boot - everything works great.
14:36
Now I would like to test a fat client using the command "ltsp-built-client --fat-client-desktop <desktop>", but I have no idea how to do this within Debian. What e.g. should I put instead of <desktop> ?
14:46
<alkisg>
truth: clone your thin chroot, cp -a /opt/ltsp /opt/ltsp.bak
14:47
Then run ltsp-chroot -m to enter the chroot
14:47
There, install any desktop environment that you want
14:47
No need to run ltsp-build-client again
14:48
Which DE package name are you looking for? Gnome?

<alkisg>
E.g. https://wiki.debian.org/LXDE
14:48
A complete Debian LXDE desktop environment (starting from Debian 7.0 "Wheezy"): # apt-get install task-lxde-desktop
14:49
<truth>
I can just write GNOME for <desktop>?
14:54
Unfortunately, the man pages of ltsp-build-client do not show the possible options ...
14:55
<alkisg>
That is because the documentation is in the debian wiki, not in the ltsp wiki
14:55
You google for "install gnome on debian"
14:55
And you find the documentation
14:55
https://wiki.debian.org/Gnome
14:55
<truth>
Thanks a lot.
14:55
<alkisg>
Options There are four options to install GNOME in Debian:
14:56
...and you either select the task or the package, depending on what you prefer
14:57
<truth>
Great. Thanks again.
14:57
<alkisg>
truth: note that there's a much easier way to install fat clients, called ltsp-pnp
14:57
Which basically mirrors your server installation, and you don't need to run ltsp-build-client at all
14:57
The ubuntu wiki page is at:
14:58
!ltsp-pnp
14:58
<ltsp`>
ltsp-pnp: ltsp-pnp is an alternative (upstream) method to maintain LTSP installations for thin and fat clients that doesn't involve chroots: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp
14:58
<alkisg>
...and there's one for debian as well, I'm sure it'll show up in google
15:02
<truth>
Great - this sounds like what I am looking for.
15:02
Actually, I saw the ltsp-pnp option but I didnt realize what it will do. Thanks for your input. I will read through the manual again.
