#alkisg Hi, Sorry to worry you. Just a quick one on the client pcs what do i need to do to make them fat clients. they are currently running win7 pro and 4gig ram i5
12:10
<alkisg>
kidar: enable boot from lan on bios, or install win32loader if they're not uefi
12:10
!win32-loader
12:10
<ltsp>
win32-loader: win32-loader.exe adds a "PXE - Network boot" option to the Windows boot manager. It's developed for Debian and it uses http://ipxe.org for the network booting. Download it from http://ftp.debian.org/debian/tools/win32-loader/stable. More info at http://goo.gl/FPD7Zv
12:11
<kidar>
i can boot from network card no problem
12:13
i setup a test edubuntu 14.04 to test net work
12:14
<alkisg>
!ltsp-pnp
12:14
<ltsp>
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
12:14
<kidar>
on the main server side i have loaded all the programs and ubuntu mate. for the ltsp and epitopes to work what do i need to do.
12:14
<alkisg>
kidar: don't use edubuntu, it's no longer developed, use ltsp-pnp ^ with ubuntu-mate 16.04
12:14
Just follow that ^ wiki page
12:15muppis_ is now known as muppis
12:17
<kidar>

<kidar>
another question help needed
12:19
i have two rooms. one has 20 fat clients for learning. the other 9 desktops used as thin clients for an internet cafe. is there a way to get them to work of one server
12:20
and also as a kiosk
12:20
<alkisg>
Yes of course
12:21
<kidar>
ok how would i get the 20 to boot up as normal and the other 9 just as kiosks
12:22
<alkisg>
You would put [mac:address] sections in lts.conf
12:23
[pc:01]
12:23
LDM_FORCE_SESSION=kiosk
12:23
<kidar>
can you send me a sample of the file please
12:23
<alkisg>
I just did
12:24
<kidar>
on for the normal ones
12:24
<alkisg>
All the other ones won't use those lines, so they'll boot as normal fat clients
12:24
You don't need anything in lts.conf for the others
12:24
Note though that there's no kiosk session for thin clients, you'd need to create one, that just opens a browser
12:25
<kidar>
would i need to do anythng on the server to make the clients run as a kiosk except putting the above in the conf file?
12:25
<alkisg>
I just answered that above :)
12:26
<kidar>
on fat clients do i need to format the hard drive, etc
12:26
<alkisg>
No, don't touch the hard drive at all
12:27
<kidar>
so leave the win 7pro
12:28
<alkisg>
Yes
12:29
<kidar>
ok, how do i create the thin client to open browser only and also i have loaded google chrome and firefox on the server.
