Hello, I have installed a LTSP server on Ubuntu Bionic. The host is 64 bits and thin clients are 32 bits. I've installed a editing software (Kdenlive) and it successfuly works. Youtube is good but i can't see any video with Totem and VLC. I'd like to use VLC but it have problems with color depth. What can I do ?

is there a way to forbid printer use (or to hide) a network printer to guest user?

clef_, vlc has problems on thin or fat clients?
17:05
<clef_>
We have only thin clients and VLC is not rendering the picture properly.
17:12
I've also tried Totem but it crashes with a segmentation fault.
17:15
<alkisg>
clef_: try: X_SMART_COLOR_DEPTH=False in lts.conf

<nikoh77>
Is there a way to disable or hide a network printer for one specific user?
19:04
<alkisg>
nikoh77: that question is not specific to ltsp, ask it in your distribution channel. LTSP manages computers, not users.

<alkisg>
(that one was just for me)
19:06
<nikoh77>
sorry... for specific user that log with a thin client
19:06
<alkisg>
Yes, it's about users again, not specific to ltsp
19:06
LTSP doesn't have settings for users
19:26
vagrantc: man unshare => "mount namespace" => I wonder if we can use that to "hide" the temporary mounts that ltsp-update-image does. It's the first time I read about unshare.
19:29
From the console it seems to work; unshare -m bash, then mount something, then on another tab, the mount isn't shown, not even in /proc/mounts
19:29
<nikoh77>
alkisg: correct, i done by os configuration... sorry
19:29
<alkisg>
No worries
19:30
<nikoh77>
now i have an ltsp problem ;-)
19:30
when i log from thin client keyrin ask password.... is possible to solve it in some way?
19:31
<alkisg>
The ltsp display manager is called LDM. It cannot unlock keyrings on login, like other display managers do,
19:31
so if you don't want to type the password there, the only way is to have an unencrypted keyring (empty password)
19:33
<vagrantc>
alkisg: interesting!
19:33
<alkisg>
vagrantc: there's also an option for networking,
19:34
I wonder if we can use it to have the nbd/ssh connections there, and put network manager and whatever in a separate namespace,
19:34
separating the "ltsp connections" from the "user connections"
19:34
<vagrantc>
ltsp as a containerized service? :)
19:35
<alkisg>
Just for the network! :)

Today I set up my first school with uefi server + clients. There were also some bios clients; ipxe to the rescue!
19:39
It worked fine, except that uefi networking is rather slow in some implementations, requiring up to 60 seconds until it downloads the kernel/initrd
19:40
This is the equivalent of "ifcpu": cpuid --ext 29 && set chroot amd64 || set chroot i386
19:40
And then, kernel ltsp/${chroot}/vmlinuz ==> at that part, we want cross-distro naming
