:( still not finding much in way of useful documentation getting what i need it to do.
01:35
<razielle_tzu>
unfortunately the people that might be able to help you more are afk
01:37
<DRoberts>
there is also something i am rather curious about, have you heard of web of trust? (the browser extension) its flagging disklessworkstations.com as untrustworthy:s

DRoberts: "headless server" ==> that doesn't mean anything at all, you can just connect with x2go instead of a physical seat
02:25
!ltsp-pnp | echo DRoberts:
02:25
<ltsp>
DRoberts: 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
02:26
<alkisg>
This guide covers 1 nic and 2 nic setups, by just setting the server ip to 192.168.67.1 for the internal nic
02:27
I put code in ltsp that automatically configures dnsmasq etc for the second nic, if the server ip has that specific value
02:28
That's why the instructions for it are so small there, a single line :)
02:28
About unity, you can use "ubuntu-mate" as the same wiki page suggests...
02:28
This has the older gnome-2 interface
02:29
Hehe sorry I just reply while reading what you said, you already saw that part about the second nic...
02:29
The internal nic paragraph has been there for years though
02:36
...actually from the beginning, revision 1 in 2012-04-09: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp?action=recall&rev=1
02:55
<DRoberts>
hi alkisg, when i say headless i ment as in i don't want it running any x server stuff on the server, only connecting via ssh
02:56
As that line has been there, i was probably reading it a bit late after spending the entire day fiddling around with it and missed it:)
02:57
down side i guess of it being in one line, easier to overlook:)
03:01
btw thanks everyone for your help, its much appreciated:)
04:00
<alkisg>
DRoberts: if you have no difficulties maintaining a chroot (and since you don't need a gui on the server), then sure you don't need the "chroot-less" part of ltsp-pnp
04:01
If you do have issues with handling e.g. dbus or grub upgrades failing on chroots, then you can have an ltsp-pnp VM inside a headless server

<Pedrupetit>
Hi, community!! Nice to meet you!
17:43
I'm a teacher and I've installed a LTSP server in my school. Now, I don't know, where the thin clients save the documents...
17:45
... like Openoffice docs, download files,...
17:45
Someone can help me? ;)
17:48
<quinox>
on the server
17:48
try looking in the /home/ folder
17:49
for fat clients it's *also* saved on the server
17:54
<Pedrupetit>
I read something about the i386 folder, but I can't find it.
17:55
<quinox>
I'm not sittin behind an LTSP client right now, but you might be able to see what's going on by running "mount" on a client
17:56
it should show you where mounted folders originate from
17:57
<vagrantc>
Pedrupetit: most likely in /home/USERNAME on the server.
17:57
Pedrupetit: or a subdirectory of /home/USERNAME
17:58
Pedrupetit: most likely it's talking about /opt/ltsp/i386, but no douments get saved there.
