When I run ltsp-remoteapps soffice Downloads/TestWordDoc.doc, file is opened as it should. But if I try to open it with xdg-open Download/TestWordDoc.doc nothing happens. Mime type is found and poiting to libreoffice-writer.desktop which Exec -line is ltsp-remoteapps soffice %U
08:37
Way to debug why that doesn't work? Boths return code is 0.
08:51alkisg has left IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg, Ping timeout: 260 seconds)

<muppis>
Founded. xdg-open just sends a filename to ltsp-remoteapps. :(
08:56alkisg has joined IRC (alkisg!~alkisg@ubuntu/member/alkisg)
08:58
<alkisg>
Why is that bad?
08:58
ltsp-remoteapps <file> should then invoke xdg-open <file> on the server... :)
08:59
<muppis>
Apparently it doesn't.
09:00* alkisg doesn't like the local/remote apps implementation very much and hasn't spend much time in it, other than replacing the daemons with xprop so that it saves RAM...
09:20
<muppis>
This is weird... I think I got it working, but didn't see that one coming. If xdg-open tries to use file under /usr/share/... it doesn't work. If it uses /rofs/usr/share... it works.
09:20
Same file in question.

<donjon>
hello
22:39
i'm having two problems (maybe more) with ltsp
22:40
network printers only work for simple programs like gedit
22:40
if you use openoffice... they don't show and you cannot use them
22:42
usb drives mount and once again they only can use simple files.... if its a document it appears the program cannot find the location on drive below /media
22:47
<||cw>
donjon: this or fat clients? if thin, any localapps? do you have the thing to make local USB available on the server?
22:48
<donjon>
thinclient setup
22:48
usb's work on server
22:49
they work on the client... it programmatic problem...
22:49
<||cw>
it's a context issue
22:49
<donjon>
simple docs can be picked up and used....
22:50
<vagrantc>
can you copy a file to another directory and read it?
22:50
<donjon>
but documents for open office (libre) don't load... well libre office cannot even see the usb
22:50
<vagrantc>
i.e. a directory off of the USB stick
22:50
<||cw>
the type of doc shoulnd't matter, they are all just files it may be a locking issue though, getting client USB file to the server context is a bit of a hack
22:50
<donjon>
yes, if you move the files to your home directory then libre can pick it up
22:50
<||cw>
is libre running as a local app?
22:51
<vagrantc>
that is most strange.
22:51
<donjon>
libre and all apps are local
22:52
libre also doesn't see the network printer
22:52
<||cw>
I mean does the process run on the thin client itself?
22:52
<vagrantc>
all apps are local, as in a fat client?
22:53
<donjon>
no... as in they load over line... then execute in memory
22:54
<||cw>
that a fat client
22:54
<donjon>
the client runs the apps... because of network traffic problem
22:54
<||cw>
thin client the app runs on the server and the display streams
22:54
<vagrantc>
donjon: do you have some apps that run remotely on the server?
22:54
<donjon>
ok... then its fat... sorry
22:54
<vagrantc>
i don't see how some apps would work and some not, otherwise.
22:54
<||cw>
well, may still be thin with localapps... there's so many options :)
22:55
<vagrantc>
or fat with remoteapps
22:55
<||cw>
o_O
22:55
heh
22:55
<vagrantc>
donjon: at any rate, you need to install ltspfs in the client image.
22:55
<||cw>
key is working out which works and which not, specifically, and then start from there
22:56
<vagrantc>
or wait, you shouldnt need to use anything ltspfs at all, just use the normal OSes handling of usb sticks
22:56
<donjon>
hmm... so you are saying that some... are executing locally... likely the small apps... like gedit... and some are executing on the server
22:56
<vagrantc>
donjon: how did this environment get configured?
22:56
<donjon>
i did it
22:57
<vagrantc>
donjon: we can speculate how it's set up all day long .... but it would be good to know how.
22:57
<donjon>
i'll come back tomorrow ;) when i have more time
22:57
<vagrantc>
donjon: what exact commands did you run?
22:57
donjon: try and get specific about what you've done when you come back...
22:58
<donjon>
yes, will do that
22:58
<||cw>
lts.conf options will help
22:58
<vagrantc>
ltsp-info
22:58
also useful
22:58
<donjon>
got that... have ssh connection to server...
22:59
chuckle... thanks guys... i will return tomorrow
