<FloydATC>
Thin clients boot, connect, login and run applications just fine. How can I do the same thing from an ordinary computer running KDE or Gnome?
08:36
I have tried to configure XDMCP and used Xnest/Xephyr, I can then log in and get a desktop but applications won't start
08:46
<alkisg>
FloydATC: why would you do that?
08:47
...also, why xnest/xephyr?!
08:48
<FloydATC>
Do what exactly? I want to log into the LTSP and run programs there instead of running them on my laptop
08:49
<quinox>
ssh -Y
08:49
<FloydATC>
Yes, that's good for running individual programs, but not the desktop
08:49
<alkisg>
FloydATC: if you want to connect to an ltsp server from a roaming device, the best way is x2go
08:49
It even works over the internet
08:50
And of course when your device is on the local network, you can just netboot it
08:51
<FloydATC>
Thanks for the tip, will look into x2go right away. Laptop uses wifi so netboot is not an option
08:51
<alkisg>
Of course you can netboot over wifi, but you can't really have a decent thin client over wifi
08:51
So that's an additional reason to use the caching/compression of x2go
08:51
<FloydATC>
yep x2go looks like a match
08:59
That's brilliant, got it up and running with blackbox and everything. Thank you!
