Hi, is there a work around for gdm3 on tty1 not stealing focus from ldm on tty7 in Ubuntu 18.04 fat clients? I have tried a few things to prevent this, but completely disabling gdm in systemd prevents the lock screen from working.

Hi..Im new to this ..Im trying to set-up a client server sytem..My server hardware is Dell Poweredge T130 and my thin clients are centerm c91v2
15:48
Ive been searching and all I see is that LTSP needs the thin clients to PXE boot
15:49
Centerm sites does not state if it is capable of PXE boot...
15:52
TSS site says the thion clients runs on COS(Linux) and supported protocols are Citrix Receiver, Microsoft RDP 8.1 Compatible
16:04
<alkisg>
rickyshore: so your question is "does ltsp support my clients"?
16:05
If the clients can boot e.g. ubuntu from usb stick, then yes they can run ltsp
16:06
ARM Cortex A9 Quad Core 1.6GHz ==> you'll probably need an arm chroot...
16:06
How many of these do you have? If it's just a few, it's not worth it, throw them away and get desktop PCs as clients
16:06
!cheap-client
16:06
<ltsp>
cheap-client: https://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-c_11262/nt1_windows~10/
16:07
<alkisg>
If it's a lot, start with getting linux to run on them via e.g. usb, and when you've done that, then it's easy to netboot that with ltsp
16:10
For example, the steps for raspberrypis which are also arm based, are:
16:10
!raspberrypi
16:10
<ltsp>
raspberrypi: (#1) Ubuntu/LTSP on Pi 2: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/RaspberryPi, or (#2) Debian/LTSP (with raspbian chroot) on Pi: http://cascadia.debian.net/trenza/Documentation/raspberrypi-ltsp-howto/, or (#3) unofficial Ubuntu/LTSP (with raspbian chroot) on Pi: http://pinet.org.uk/
17:02
<rickyshore>
its quite a lot..Im trying to set-up 20 of those clients..I was able to make it run by using RDP but I wanted to see if running LTSP would be better

octaquad is already gone, but I had some solution to than gdm3/gnome3/ldm/lockscreen problem in rhel repo... I just don't remember what it was anymore...
18:08
<alkisg>
Eh, for me it's ubuntu mate for 18.04, while for 20.04 where we'll need to move to wayland/gnome, we'll probably end up rewriting ltsp without all the legacy stuff...
18:08
so, no ldm, pam etc etc
