<tarzeau>
i wonder if someone in here already runs ltsp server with ubuntu 18.04 ?
06:59
<alkisg>
tarzeau: I am, yes
06:59
<tarzeau>
with the ubuntu default desktop, works fine?
06:59
clients being not fat? netbooted thing?
07:00
<alkisg>
In the default installation, it has a few issues like e.g. clients hanging on shutdown or resolv.conf issues
07:00
I've written the code that fixes it, but I haven't pushed it upstream yet
07:00
<tarzeau>
are the fixes being worked on, or documented?
07:00
sounds good
07:00
we're still with 16.04 (dual ltsp servers, load balanced with ldm)
07:00
<alkisg>
We might have a release with them around September, in the Greek schools PPA, if everything goes well
07:02
<tarzeau>
i prefer only official sources.list and maybe some we fix ourselves in our own repo, no ppas... but looking at your greek schools ppa will help then
07:02
i've only re-installed 20% of our ubuntu 16.04 workstations, and the ltsp servers (workstations) will be the last two
07:03
<alkisg>
The problem with LTSP is that it needs to solve issues that appear very late or even after the release cycle
07:03
So while I've been running Ubuntu 18.04 since November, some issues appeared very recently, and I'm sure others will appear later on
07:04
That means that LTSP needs to be updated frequently. SRU'ing new versions to Ubuntu is very time consuming though.
07:04
So the Greek schools PPA is actually my recommended way to run LTSP in all Ubuntu LTS versions.
07:05
Otherwise you get the older LTSP, that runs well on 16.04, and you run it on 18.04, with a lot of breakage.

<erik__>
on the thin client itself it is using this /var/run/ltsp-xorg.conf file for its settings. Where should I edit so that it will reflect my custom settings in the ltsp-xorg.conf file?
15:07
equinox, I have not tried with two touch screen monitors, as we only have the one.
15:07
sorry I misread your handle, quinox

16:24
we followed this
16:24
the only thing is now we need to make it persistant
16:25
How can we make it persistant for just a few users on a shared thin client
