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_
I have something interesting to share. My setup uses virtualbox and finally make it work sharing USB ports at hypervisor layer with thin clients
Vbox is running on the server or on the clients?
who is in charge of wiki to see if this info is relevant and want to publish it?
And usb ports of the server or of the clients?
Vbox in server, and share USB ports of thin clients with it
How, with ltspfs or do you mean something like usb over ip?
all via rdesktop-vrdp (a modified vrdp client for virtualbox)
shure, but this way works really fast and stable, and is totally "plug and play"
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?
Yeah sure that will interest people, document it in a wiki page
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..
Of course not, documenting things is always good; if people buy or not the software isn't an issue
ok great! thanks!
np, thank you too

no way to create an account in the wiki (error 500)
coyotenq: could you send a mail about that to ltsp-developers?
I do not know about 'develop', but I do know about these similar topics: 'ltsp-developer'

@alkisg, can you tell me how to start epoptes-client for the test you recommended yesterday?
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
Can I due that via the epoptes execute/open terminal/user, locally?
need to make a local account (use AD binding and don't have a student account)
You should be able to do it with epoptes execute terminal, yes

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.
|20:25||lucascastro has left IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org, Remote host closed the connection)|
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.
And with "root, remotely" no console appeared.

dgroos: Are you expecting to see the epoptes control window?
@sutula, when I launched the epoptes on the ltsp-pnp server, that's what I expected and what happened.
I really am not sure what to expect when launching epoptes-client.
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.
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?
alkisg had suggested I try the approach of launching the epoptes and epoptes-client and see what is written there.
On my LTSP setup, launching "epoptes" on the server shows all the clients, but assuming the clients are set up to run epoptes-client?
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.
That (what you said) has been my experience.
I was trying to manually launch it on non-LTSP clients to see whether any magic happened.
Trying to find out why "broadcast screen" does not work, that was alkisg's idea to get info on that problem.
@sutula, thanks :-)
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.
I know that doesn't help your debug but I guess that's how it's supposed to work.
First run of the -client needs to be run with a -c option to fetch a certificate from the server.
@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!

@alkisg, (note to future) I think I figured out what you meant!
|22:53||gdi2k has left IRC (firstname.lastname@example.org, Ping timeout: 252 seconds)|
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
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:
"epoptes-client: 297: kill: No such process"
@alkisg, got to leave, will check back *tomorrow* :-) thanks!
