<Dodger>
hi all, will it irritate everyone if I ask some VERY newb thin client questions?
02:42
Since no one objected, I'll go ahead =)
02:43
I'm starting up a school - VERY beginner classes on things like Word, Excel, digital advertising, using Google Docs, that sort of thing (with most classes running for 8 hours on a Saturday or 4 two-hour sessions in evenings)
02:43
I'm trying to decide between workstations / laptops / Chromebooks / thin clients
02:44
I can't really get my head about the fundamentals of a thin client network. Could I just set up LTSP on a server then buy cheap thin clients off of Ebay?
02:46
Is it ok if the thin clients are a mixture of makes and models? Is there anything I need to look for in their technical specs to ensure they'd work with LTSP? Could I provide a Windows virtual desktop via LTSP? Word and Excel? Any other limitations that might not be immediately obvious?

hi
11:37
right now Iam trying watch epoptes throught ssh 'ssh -X user@192.168.1.1' ..and after established connection 'epoptes'
11:38
I have remote window of epoptes, but I see not connected client
11:41
<alkisg>
ZAJDAN: are there connected clients?
11:41
<ZAJDAN>
Ha! after reboot client is all ok.....but for Alkisg it will be good to know, when client had unplugged cable and epoptes lost the client, after reconnect doesn't get him back
11:42
<alkisg>
Recent epoptes versions do support reconnections

<ZAJDAN>
alkisg: mine is Epoptes 0.5.7
11:43
<alkisg>
Upgrade it then :)
11:44
Get 0.5.10
11:46GodFather__ has left IRC (GodFather__!~rcc@47.33.250.142, Client Quit)
11:46GodFather__ has joined IRC (GodFather__!~rcc@47.33.250.142)
11:50
<ZAJDAN>
alkisg: can I do it via 'apt-get install --only-upgrade epoptes' ...?
11:51
<alkisg>
ZAJDAN: distro/version?
11:51
<ZAJDAN>
Debian 8 x64
11:51
<alkisg>
http://packages.debian.org/epoptes
11:51
Jessie-backports has 0.5.10
11:51
Enable backports...
12:00
<ZAJDAN>
alkisg: epoptes has been updated to 5.10 , is somehow possible get info about active clients, into new instance of epoptes?
12:01
<alkisg>
If you mean "how to upgrade clients", you should run ltsp-update-image -c / and reboot them
12:03
<ZAJDAN>
not....I mean than during update epoptes has been epoptes restarted/deleted and installed new version and when I started the new version of epoptes I see not active clients..do I have to reboot clients?
12:03
or somehow send probe packet
12:03
<alkisg>
Yes, because they are old and don't support reconnects
12:03
If you already had 0.5.10, you would see them after epoptes upgrade
12:04
<ZAJDAN>
I updated just server side app(epoptes)
12:04
I do not need epoptes on clients
12:05
simply say I will need just reboot clients?

12:08
<alkisg>
You need to update epoptes on clients and reboot them
12:22
<ZAJDAN>
so then I need ltsp-update-image ...yes?
12:23
<alkisg>
Yes
12:23
<ZAJDAN>
ok will do..thnx
12:23
<alkisg>
np
12:25
<ZAJDAN>
would be perfect from epoptes some scheduler/timer for shutdown clients (just idea)
12:26
<alkisg>
You can run `sudo sleep 10m && poweroff` from the execute menu fi you want
12:28
<ZAJDAN>
thnx for hint

<||cw>
doens't that need to be sudo (sleep 10m && poweroff) ?
15:00
<alkisg>
||cw: it's a trick, when you say "sudo" in epoptes, the whole command is executed by the epoptes root client (system-wide instance)
15:01
It's not an actual command, it's a directive...
15:01
<||cw>
nice
