Strange behavior, if anyone can help...I have an LTSP setup (Ubuntu 16.04 if it matters). Working fine. I'm the admin (teacher) and never log in. But then I start logging into the cluster on a thin client and see some odd behavior.
03:02
First thing I notice is that some of my subdirectories (e.g. Desktop) are suddenly set to group "teacher".
03:03
But the more troubling thing is that I had set up a screensaver (slideshow) and the target subdirectory that contains the pictures are now changed to group teacher and chmod such that nobody else can see the pictures.
03:04
So something, I think, is happening during login where a script is changing group ownership of some set of things to "teacher" and even modifying permissions.
03:05
Is this known/expected behavior? Is it documented anywhere? (pointers to code are fine :-) What's the purpose?

sutula: if your user is called teacher the group is teacher as default too... did you change it?
06:28
also those directories are in your home directory right?
06:29
I don't know the code but you could simply put the "shared directory" outside of your home directory eg. /home/screensaver

<alkisg>
sutula: that's the "shared folders" feature of ltsp-manager
07:04
I won't be porting ltsp-manager for 18.04 since there wasn't a lot of demand for it, so we'll keep using sch-scripts locally here in Greece, so just remove it from 16.04 too if it has "undocumented" features that you don't like/know how to use...
07:04
The script starts from /etc/xdg/autostart/shared-folders.desktop

<enaut[m]>
alkisg: does the shared folders feature remove "manual" shares done with file permissions?
08:04
<alkisg>
enaut[m]: it doesn't "remove" anything...

Is it safe to say that ltsp-manager is out of support?

hello. Is it safe to say ltsp-manager is not out of support?
12:39
<enaut[m]>
deepanshuG_: I worked on it lately and did not publish it yet but I will do so in the coming weeks.
12:40
<deepanshuG_>
okay. are you alkisg?
12:42
other then less demand, Are there any other issues/reasons why its not ported in ubuntu 18.04
12:43
Maybe some security issues.
