<ZAJDAN>
alkisg: hi master...I would like to ask You if somehow possible refresh status of preview screen in Epoptes
07:17
one my thin client is ON..I can take control, but in main window of epoptes(preview) I se just green icon(thin)
07:19
<alkisg>
ZAJDAN: that means that the epoptes root service is running on the client, but the epoptes session service isn't running
07:20
If it was running previously and it hanged, you'll need to research why it hanged
07:20
To 'refresh' it you need to go to the client and run /usr/sbin/epoptes-client
07:20
(or logout/login)
07:23
<ZAJDAN>
alkisg: yes logout/login solved it

<sutula>
Can someone recommend a decent platform/OS for a new LTSP installation these days? I have a very old LTSP on Debian squeeze that desperately needs to be updated.
22:02
I tried 17.04 Ubuntu/Unity but the graphics are unusably slow on my older thin clients.
22:03
I've so far tried "LDM_DIRECTX = True" with no improvement.
22:03
I can try other window managers and keep slugging away, but what are other people using these days?
22:04
Does anyone have something they're happy with? (especially with older/slower thin clients)
22:05
So far, I've found that the existing documentation is quite out of date, and so am just flying blind.

<bennabiy>
sutula: I would stick with 16.04 - like Ubuntu-Mate or the like. Very stable for LTSP, and MATE is very good for thin clients

22:34
<sutula>
bennabiy: thank-you? Any specific instructions? With 17.04 I installed server, added LTSP, then ltsp-build-client and went from there.

!ltsp-pnp | echo sutula
22:35
<ltsp>
sutula ltsp-pnp: ltsp-pnp is the recommented method to install and maintain LTSP for "usual" setups. Since it doesn't involve chroots, it requires little to no command line to maintain it. It automatically supports both thin and fat ltsp clients. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ltsp-pnp
22:35
<bennabiy>
!ltsp-manager | echo sutula
22:35
<ltsp>
sutula ltsp-manager: LTSP Manager is a GUI tool that makes LTSP maintenance easy. It's the recommended way to install LTSP in common setups. More info: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager
