<rac_>
how to configure the desktop background in lts.conf ?
04:47
anyone can help me ?
04:53
<sbalneav>

04:53
Not in lts.conf.

<rac_>
sbalneav: if I am in the Desktop configuration settings that only changes in one client only. but I want to change at all client LTSP
05:51
<sbalneav>
rac_: LTSP doesn't handle desktop config
05:51
You'll have to use whatever deployment tools are in the desktop.
05:51
<rac_>
the configuration in LTSP Server
05:52
<sbalneav>
LTSP just delivers the desktop
05:52
The actual desktop settings need to be done within the desktop management.
05:52
i.e. within mate, you'll need to set things within the dconf system, etc.
05:53
I'm heading to bed.
05:53
Good lucj.

<bennabiy>
All of a sudden, I cannot ssh to my server from a fat client, although everything is working from the client
15:39
too many authentication failures
15:39
even when I configure it in .ssh/config
15:41
but if I log into a tty, I can ssh
15:42
just not from a terminal within a session
15:45
<sbalneav>
What's your environment look like in the terminal?
15:45
Specifically, what's $HOME?
15:45
<bennabiy>
I think it was ssh-agent getting involved
15:45
I just added my own ssh key to my authorized_keys and now it works
15:45
I added a new ssh key for GitHub
15:46
probably sent me over the 5 limit
15:46
I just thought of that
15:47
sbalneav: do you work with LDAP at all?
15:48
<sbalneav>
All the time.
15:48
It's what we use here at Legal Aid.

sbalneav: ^
16:30
<sbalneav>
YALA?
16:30
No
16:35markit has left IRC (markit!~marco@lsmtp.trecisrl.it, Quit: Konversation terminated!)
16:52
<bennabiy>
How do you maintain it? Do you prefer command line, phpLDAPadmin or something else?
16:53
I am looking into possibly writing a frontend to allow our users to be able to maintain certain aspects of their entry, without needing to know LDAP

heh. don't seem to have any plans as yet...

How is the weather on the west coast this year?

<sbalneav>
bennabiy: command line.
19:11
And I don't allow the users to touch nothin'
19:11
Guarenteed way to have things mess up.
19:11
<bennabiy>
sbalneav: do you script it all, or manual?
19:11
<sbalneav>
It's bad enough they get to pick their own file names.
19:12
some scripting, some manual
19:12
<bennabiy>
sbalneav: true.
19:12
HAH!
19:12
what is the best way to delete all leaves below a branch, without including the branch
19:13
say I want to delete all entries below ou=People,dc=lab
19:13
<sbalneav>
"Why can't I have a file name like 'accounts recievable 2/2/2 & other stuff;'?
19:14
<bennabiy>
ouch
19:14
<sbalneav>
I'd probably use shelldap to do something like that, and just cd into the branch, and do a rm *
19:14
shelldap is your friend.
19:14
<bennabiy>
never used it
19:14
in the repos?
19:14
<sbalneav>
apt-get install shelldap should do the trick.
19:14
<bennabiy>
wonderful@!
19:15
debian as well?
19:15
<sbalneav>
yup
19:15* bennabiy rejoices
19:15
<sbalneav>
you'll need a .shelldap.rc
19:15
something like:
19:15
server: ldap.legalaid.mb.ca
19:15
binddn: cn=ldapadmin,dc=legalaid,dc=mb,dc=ca
19:15
<bennabiy>
documented I am guessing somewhere
19:16
<sbalneav>
bindpass: hahahadidyouthinkiwasgoingtopastethat
19:16
basedn: dc=legalaid,dc=mb,dc=ca
19:16
then just say "shelldap"
19:16
youi get a command prompt
19:16
ls shows you ther trees
19:16
cd allows you to traverse
19:16
rm deletes
19:17
<bennabiy>
mv ?
19:17
<sbalneav>
vi cn=blahdeblah to edit
19:17
yep, mv
19:17
cp as well
19:17
<bennabiy>
groovy
19:17
<sbalneav>
yeah
19:17
makes life easy.
19:17
<bennabiy>
Does it make mate?
19:17
<sbalneav>
no
19:18
<bennabiy>
I guess nothing is perfect
19:18
<sbalneav>
It doesn't make life that easy.
19:20
<bennabiy>
man says that if you bind successfully from cli, it will generate the .rc file automatically
19:20
is it better to generate it ahead of time, or just do it from the first call?
19:20
<sbalneav>
I've been using it for so long, I can't remember.
19:20
years.
19:20
"whatever works"
19:21
<bennabiy>
thank you so much
19:21
glad I asked
19:22
I have primarily used YALA for doing basic work, which I recently forked and updated to work with newer PHP, but it is still somewhat limited in what it can do
19:23
<sbalneav>
I find shelldap strikes the balance for me. Easy to use, intuitive (for a shell user), doesn't involve setup like a webserver/php/etc, and can be used anywhere (you can ssh from/to)
19:24
<bennabiy>
I like it
19:24
I guess you could even set it as the shell for an LDAP admin user
19:24
maybe that is a bit risky
19:26
<sbalneav>
prolly :D
19:28
<bennabiy>
Wow... I like it!

<vagrantc>
bennabiy: weather-wise, we've had an unseasonably cold december and january
19:41
<bennabiy>
I was wondering, because ours has been quite warm
19:41
<vagrantc>
bennabiy: almost a foot of snow dropped a week ago and hasn't melted, expecting freezing rain today
19:41
<bennabiy>
I am jealous
19:41
we got about 8 inches about a week ago, but it lasted a day
19:41
<vagrantc>
i think this is the most days below freezing we've had since i came to the northwest ~16 years ago
19:45
good thing i can telecommute :)
