vlt: https://packages.debian.org/jessie/firefox-esr
06:43
Does that use gtk2?
06:43
Maybe it's a better way than falling back to iceweasel
06:44
(and it does get security updates)

alkisg: Hi!
09:45
iceweasel is a symlink to firefox-esr now on Debian.
09:45
This change made us realise that there are massive performance problems.

<TimKramer>
hello
09:46
<vlt>
There’s a firefox config option "gfx.xrender.force_enabled". Set to true improves the situation a little.
09:47
<TimKramer>
can anybody tell me how i deactivate the energy saving options on the ltsp clients?
09:47
<vlt>
The problem: this option is no longer present/parsed by newer Firefox versions (47, for example).
09:48
They tried to fix something in the latest nightly build of firefox but I haven’t tried that yet and it might take some time til it reaches us via Debian updates :-D
09:49
TimKramer: Our MATE desktop environment has System -> Einstellungen -> Energieverwaltung for that.
09:50
<TimKramer>
im using no mate on this clients. the clients go to a rdp session
09:50
but after 10 -15 mins no activate they shut down the monitor
09:51
<vlt>
TimKramer: Maybe there’s an "xset ... dpms" command you could put into a startup script.
09:53
<TimKramer>
okay but my linux skills are like zero so u can explain a bit more?
09:54
<vlt>
I’ll try … type "xset dpms" into the google search field and try to make sense of something that appears there. :-D
09:55
<TimKramer>
ill try :D
09:57
xset say unable to open display when i try xset dpms 0
09:57
i tried it with chroot /opt/ltsp/i386/ xset dpms 0

10:52
<TimKramer>
can anyone say me if some configs on the running ltsp client are saved?
10:58
<vlt>
TimKramer: The client usually has no local storage. The root file system is either mounted via NFS or squashfs, for example. Both in read-only mode. Anything that needs to "written" on the client is done in RAM (in a usionfs layer, I think).
10:58
TimKramer: If you want to store per-client configs there’s lts.conf.
11:11
<TimKramer>
mhh okay...
11:12
in the lts.conf i cant do anything with energy saving... i dont know why the clients goto standby :(

<vlt>
TimKramer: What did you try in lts.conf that didn’t work?
12:24
<TimKramer>
i mean i cant find any param for modifying the standby in the lts.conf

<||cw>
TimKramer: so modify it in the chroot
13:20
but that said, i don't recall any of mine going into standby by default
13:21
except maybe screen saver settings, but those are per user and are saved
13:21
<alkisg>
!lts.conf | echo TimKramer:
13:21
<ltsp>
TimKramer: lts.conf: (#1) http://manpages.ubuntu.com/lts.conf, or (#2) lts.conf manpage is available in the ltsp-docs package
13:21
<alkisg>
See the X_BLANKING directive
13:22
You just need X_BLANKING=0
13:22
There's no screensaver with rdp as you have no session
13:22
It's just dkms
13:22
<||cw>
isn't that off by default?
13:22
<alkisg>
No, it would harm the monitors...
13:24
<||cw>
looks like I do have it set on many of mine, but not all
13:25
<TimKramer>
thanks ill try

<odirneto>
Hello
21:42
Do you guys know if I can access the ltsp by an RDP program, like rdesktop or remmina?
21:45
<maldridge>
ltsp is designed for booting physical hardware, what exactly are you trying to do
21:47
<odirneto>
I'm trying to create a remote enviroment like windows terminal server in Linux-based server
21:48
What I want: a sales representative use a program like REMMINA or RDESKTOP to access a remote desktop and run the companys ERP
21:50
I saw NOMACHINE, but its licensing cost is above MS windows terminal server... so I thought that LTSP would be a opensource alternative
21:52
<maldridge>
if you are using existing clients that run something already, you could use x2go to give them a remote linux desktop
21:54
<odirneto>
Now a days we use WTS
21:54
But I want to change it, because of the licensing renewing cost
21:56
X2go would be a competitive for Windows Terminal Server?
21:56
<maldridge>
I have not used it personally, but I believe that is the case
21:56
it presents you with a way to remotely log into a virtual desktop hosted on another machine
21:58
<odirneto>
It would be a very good solution... I will research about it... thanks man!
