I'm still getting "Could not acquire name on session bus", but if I manage to login (just after reboot), I get a Mate desktop where I can't click anything. Mouse moves the cursor, but that's it: no clicks anywhere, no keyboard response either. Has anyone seen anything like this?

<jgee>
I changed the repo to the Greek Schools PPA, and generated a new image. Still the users can login but after that, mouse and keyboard stop working on the Mate desktop

<jgee>
I found this in the user's .xsession-errors; could possibly have something to do with my mouse/keyboard errors? «xhost: must be on local machine to add or remove hosts.»
17:44
<quinox>
you're using thin clients?
17:45
<jgee>
quinox: Yes, HP T630 as thin clients
17:47
<quinox>
looks fancy
17:47
they are not suitable to be fat clients?
17:48
I have no experience with thin clients
17:49
<jgee>
Probably. We've used other HP models, but I'd never come across this issue: Mate loads (black background, though), and no response to mouse clicks or keyboard at all
17:50
<quinox>
that xhost might be the problem
17:50
you can whitelist all IPs just for testing
17:51
If I remember by xhost commands correctly it's "xhost +"
17:52
it's a security hole the size of the titanic, so don't use it beyond testing
17:52
<jgee>
I'll try that. This would be on the server, right?
17:53
<quinox>
yes
17:54
<jgee>
Thanks, I'll research that way. I also should try to use them as fat clients
17:55
<quinox>
in general I believe the advise is to use fat clients unless you have good reasons to use thin ones
17:55
nowadays at least
17:55
a CPU, some RAM and a network card can be had for little money
17:56
<jgee>
Yes, since we use mostly older HP thin clients, I find it easier to setup all of them as thin
17:56
<quinox>
oh right, motherboards all have on-board NICs now, so that's not even something you need to buy

17:57
<quinox>
oh sure
17:57
<jgee>
But I'll setup this image with Mate and send it to them as fat, and see how it goes
17:59
<quinox>
you can have LTSP support both, the clients will choose based on RAM
17:59
http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager/Preparation
17:59
<jgee>
Yes, I was looking at this options in the conf file
18:00
I hadn't found the page you sent, though. Looks pretty clear
18:01
<quinox>
if you need help just ask and stick around, smart people with lots of LTSP experience do hang out here helping people
18:02* quinox is just a mere mortal happily using LTSP
18:03
<quinox>
jgee | I'll try that. This would be on the server, right? <-- under the account of the user you are trying to fix BTW
18:05
<jgee>
Oh, ok. Thanks
18:05
<quinox>
it even needs to know your running X instance... not sure if the setting is remembered
18:06
you can do it over SSH unrelated to the X session, you just need to know which one it is
18:06
fe.: DISPLAY=:7.0 xhost +
18:06
<jgee>
got it
18:06
I'll try that
