vagrantc, if you happen to look at the logs, epoptes is ready for upload, I'm not planning to work on it anymore unless issues are discovered

(10:58:57 πμ) alkisg: Hi CoYoTeNq_
08:04
<CoYoTeNq_>
I have something interesting to share. My setup uses virtualbox and finally make it work sharing USB ports at hypervisor layer with thin clients
08:05
<alkisg>
Vbox is running on the server or on the clients?
08:05
<CoYoTeNq_>
who is in charge of wiki to see if this info is relevant and want to publish it?
08:05
<alkisg>
And usb ports of the server or of the clients?
08:06
<CoYoTeNq_>
Vbox in server, and share USB ports of thin clients with it
08:06
<alkisg>
How, with ltspfs or do you mean something like usb over ip?
08:07
<CoYoTeNq_>
all via rdesktop-vrdp (a modified vrdp client for virtualbox)
08:07
shure, but this way works really fast and stable, and is totally "plug and play"
08:07
<alkisg>
Do you mean that you have windows running inside virtualbox on the ltsp server, and you're sharing the thin client usb ports with windows?
08:08
<CoYoTeNq_>
exactly
08:08
<alkisg>
Yeah sure that will interest people, document it in a wiki page
08:11
<CoYoTeNq_>
ok! gonna do it. Is not a problem using licenced software (like windows or virtualbox)?? I don't know if this goes against any rule..
08:12
<alkisg>
Of course not, documenting things is always good; if people buy or not the software isn't an issue
08:13
<CoYoTeNq_>
ok great! thanks!
08:14
<alkisg>
np, thank you too

Hi all!
17:09
@alkisg, can you tell me how to start epoptes-client for the test you recommended yesterday?
17:10
I had no prob starting epoptes in terminal at the server

dgroos: just open a terminal on the client and run /usr/sbin/epoptes-client
17:34
<dgroos>
Can I due that via the epoptes execute/open terminal/user, locally?
17:35
need to make a local account (use AD binding and don't have a student account)

dgroos: back
17:56
You should be able to do it with epoptes execute terminal, yes

<bwicksall>
Is there a way to prevent server cron jobs from showing up in fat clients? I notice any jobs I define for root on the server are appearing on the clients.

@alkisg, I tried to launch epoptes-client with User, locally, and there was no output.

<dgroos>
I tried launching epoptes-client w/Root, locally, and the console closed immediately and the icon in epoptes window disappeared and the client went black, only a small circle symbol rotating in the middle.
20:26
And with "root, remotely" no console appeared.

<sutula>
dgroos: Are you expecting to see the epoptes control window?
21:12
<dgroos>
Back!
21:13
@sutula, when I launched the epoptes on the ltsp-pnp server, that's what I expected and what happened.
21:13
I really am not sure what to expect when launching epoptes-client.
21:14
I was surprised when, upon entering the command in the console, that the console closed immediately and the client disappeared from the epoptes window and the client screen went blank.
21:15
<sutula>
I'm also experimenting as I type...I *think* the client may be intended to be launched on a machine that will then show up as a client on the console?
21:16
<dgroos>
alkisg had suggested I try the approach of launching the epoptes and epoptes-client and see what is written there.
21:16
<sutula>
On my LTSP setup, launching "epoptes" on the server shows all the clients, but assuming the clients are set up to run epoptes-client?
21:17
<dgroos>
I had thought that the epoptes-client ran automatically on the clients as well, not that it was an app that needed to be launched.
21:18
<sutula>
That (what you said) has been my experience.
21:18
I was trying to manually launch it on non-LTSP clients to see whether any magic happened.
21:19
<dgroos>
Trying to find out why "broadcast screen" does not work, that was alkisg's idea to get info on that problem.
21:19
@sutula, thanks :-)
21:19
<sutula>
sorry...
21:20
<dgroos>
np!
21:20
I'll look around to get a deeper understanding what epoptes-client is/does.

dgroos: Did eventually confirm that you can install -client on a random machine and have that machine show up on the epoptes server's application window.
21:34
I know that doesn't help your debug but I guess that's how it's supposed to work.
21:34
First run of the -client needs to be run with a -c option to fetch a certificate from the server.
21:39
<dgroos>
@sutula, that relates to what I found on the -client manpage, mentioning the -c option but didn't explain the context when you would need the certificate. Now I know!

<dgroos>
I started epoptes on the terminal at the server. Then I used the epoptes tool: execute/root, locally and ran journalctl -u epoptes-client -f
23:03
Then, every time I tried to broadcast my screen from the server (using epoptes) to the client, I saw this message show up on the terminal:
23:04
"epoptes-client: 297: kill: No such process"
23:05
@alkisg, got to leave, will check back *tomorrow* :-) thanks!
