Hi - I'm having a problem with ltsp-localapps. I'm trying the run Firefox and Chrome as localapps but they don't seem to get any of the settings from the users profile.
13:41
So /usr/bin/firefox will load the Firefox profile correctly from /home/$user/.mozilla but ltsp-localapps /usr/bin/firefox doesn't.

hi everyone
13:54
I am running ltsp-pnp to take exams
13:55
I want to shut down the terminals at a certain time without shutting down the server
13:55
As the kiosk user I have no rights to shut down
13:56
If I place the shutdown in /etc/crontab the server will also shut down
13:56
!ltsp-pnp
13:56
<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

16:51
<nO>
Can i use ltsp vdi server and connect to "machines" via RDP? I don't whant to connect from thin client but from pc widh rdp
16:52
Can i use ltsp as vdi server *
16:53nO_ has joined IRC (nO_!53140b9b@gateway/web/freenode/ip.83.20.11.155)
16:53
<quinox>
like http://www.epoptes.org/ ?
16:56
<nO_>
propably epoptes is correct answer
16:57
thx quinox
16:57
<quinox>
np
16:58
<nO_>
sorry but epoptes is only for monitoring
16:59
i would like to users connect from windows pc to thunderbird running on linux
17:00
but i dont want to create 10 vm for each user

17:26
<quinox>
Would running 10 VNC clients work?
17:26
run them all on their own user account
17:31
what's your use case?
17:31
Last time I checked Thunderbird runs just fine on Windows :)

!x2go | echo nO_:
17:50
<ltsp`>
nO_: x2go: x2go is an NX-based suite of applications that allow logging in to a remote X server from any OS. It's much more efficient than VNC over slow network. More info: http://www.x2go.org/
17:51
<nO_>
I want to run firefox, thunderbird on a separate "computer" to protect the PC from malware
17:51
<alkisg>
nO_: so you really want one VM per user?
17:52
<nO_>
no
17:52
<alkisg>
Firefox, thunderbird etc run as the user; that means they can't normally affect the OS
17:52
<nO_>
im looking alternative for windows terminal services
17:52
<alkisg>
I think you need to better explain your use case
17:52
LTSP is Linux Terminal Server Project
17:53
So the name matches what you're looking for; but it depends on what you really want...
17:53
<nO_>
but i like to connect via RDP
17:54
run RDP client on Windows and connect to Ubuntu with LTSP and xRDP
18:01
<quinox>
why specifically via RDP?
18:01
it's a really nifty protocol, but it wouldn't be my first choice when connecting to a linux host
18:04
whenever I have to connect over RDP I boot my Windows VM and use RDP inside the VM, it's superior over any RDP tools that I've tried on Linux
18:06
<nO_>
quinox: i try x2go
18:09
<alkisg>
nO_: ltsp is about booting diskless clients. You don't have diskless clients but windows clients, so you don't want ltsp
18:09lucascastro has left IRC (lucascastro!~lucas@186.227.186.18, Remote host closed the connection)
18:09
<alkisg>
Use xrdp which is an rdp server, or x2go with x2goclient on windows
18:11
<nO_>
alkisg: You have right. I have Microsft think about terminals ;)
18:11
thanks for info
