I'v tried googling it obviously

<alkisg>
very_n00b: is this question related to ltsp at all?
11:47
There are many ways to vnc to a server without having to set it up yourself...
11:47
For example, epoptes supports that
11:48
!epoptes
11:48
<ltsp>
epoptes: Epoptes is a computer lab administration and monitoring tool. It works on Ubuntu and Debian based labs with LTSP or non-LTSP servers, thin and fat clients, standalone workstations, NX clients etc. More info: http://www.epoptes.org
11:48
<alkisg>
!x2go
11:48
<ltsp>
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/
12:27
<very_n00b>
alkisg: thanks yes, working on the ltsp server, I just got it right with x11vnc which is what you used last month with me. Will look into the others now thank you.
12:31
alkisg: (the idea was to remotely log into the ltsp server and launch epoptes)

very_n00b_: what does "remotely" mean in this case? is there any routing? firewall? NAT?

<Guest37623>
For some reason I have to create ltsp setup on linux mint 19. I am able to do that. But I dont see any gui on the client.
16:15
Is it due any mistakes ?
16:23
<quinox>
what if you hit control+alt+F1, do you see a prompt?
16:27
<Guest37623>
yes root shell. If I enable it from lts.conf
16:31
<quinox>
that's good
16:32
my guess: either videocard drivers or kernel mode setting
16:33
(mmm, if the kernel was the culprit you wouldn't be able to see a prompt either probably)
16:33
<Guest37623>
ohh okay. How can I check that?
16:33
<quinox>
if you log in you can check /var/log/X.org to see what that one reports
16:34
<Guest37623>
yeah sure. I will check that in an hour.
16:36

16:37
if that does'nt help stick around, at some point more knowledgeable people will wake which can offer advic

Guest37623: make sure your default environment isn't one that requires 3D acceleration, unless you're using fat clients
16:42
though I guess you should still get a login screen
16:43
also, did the ubuntu 18.04 issues ever get resolved?
16:43
and if so, did mint pull over the relevant things?

17:27
<alkisg>
||cw: no, ubuntu issues are not yet resolved, and affect mint too
17:27
Guest37623: see if you're affected by another mint issue, that alt+ctrl+f7 was needed to switch to the gui
17:28
Guest37623: if you're unable to resolve it, install epoptes.org, and ping me for remote support
17:31
||cw: I'll prepare a new ltsp version within August

<Guest37623>
alkisg : That great! I have epoptes installed. How can I get remote support?
19:10
<alkisg>
Guest37623: do this:
19:10
!vnc-edide
19:10
<ltsp>
vnc-edide: To share your screen with me, open Epoptes → Help menu → Remote support → Host: srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr, and click the Connect button
19:21
<alkisg>
Guest37623: you had a syntax error in your lts.conf. Are you the gsoc guy?
19:24
<Guest37623>
Yes..
19:25
<alkisg>
Nice; it's best to use your usual nickname so that we know :)
19:26
Reboot the client and see if it works
19:26
<Guest37623>
Sorry about that. This was a silly one.
19:26
alkisg : Yes it works
