Heh. Another possibility of ltsploop, is to boot the server itself from the VM image. So I can e.g. test fedora30 on real hardware on local disk without having to install it to a partition.

!hash
07:40
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'hash', but I do know about these similar topics: 'LDM_PASSWORD_HASH', 'ROOT_PASSWORD_HASH'
07:41
<alkisg>
!LDM_PASSWORD_HASH | echo jeblesh_
07:41
<ltsp>
jeblesh_ LDM_PASSWORD_HASH: LDM_PASSWORD_HASH=True in lts.conf saves the password hash to /etc/shadow on login, so that the users can unlock the screensaver etc. If they happen to change their password though, that only takes effect until logout.

!fat
07:41
<ltsp>
I do not know about 'fat', but I do know about these similar topics: 'fatclient-printers', 'epoptes-fat-clients', 'fat-internal-disks', 'fat-passwd', 'fat-sudo', 'fatclients'
07:41
<alkisg>
!fatclient-printers | echo jeblesh_
07:41
<ltsp>
jeblesh_ fatclient-printers: You can publish printers on your network so that fat clients see them, by launching "system-config-printer" and selecting Server → Settings → Publish shared printers connected to this system

when i tray to add a printer i get forbidden errore and also cant sudu in clients ...
07:53
<alkisg>
jeblesh_: don't login with the same account in 2 computers
07:53
Then, files get overwritten, file locks don't work, it's very messy
07:53
Create a "test" user instead
08:00
jeblesh_: you haven't put the LDM_PASSWORD_HASH command
08:00
But, note that you should NOT run sudo on the clients
08:00
Because e.g. if you install a program, it will be lost on reboot
08:00
If you install a printer, it will be lost on reboot
08:00
The clients are like live cds
08:01
<jeblesh_>
oky so bad icear on my part
08:01
idear*
08:01
<alkisg>
Where is the printer connected now, that you want to share?
08:01
<jeblesh_>
yes
08:01
<alkisg>
On the server?
08:01
<jeblesh_>
network printer ...
08:02
<alkisg>
You add printers from the control panel
08:02
You add them on the server, and clients get them automatically
08:02
Choose the printer you want and install it
08:04
jeblesh_: ok this is not related to ltsp; your printer doesn't support ubuntu properly
08:05
Do you want me to search and help with that?
08:05
<jeblesh_>
oh
08:05
i realy dont whont to bother you i will tray and do it my self (:
08:05
<alkisg>
ok
08:05
<jeblesh_>
need to learn things on the go ...

<mwalters>
Hey alkisg, I need to do a wireless bridge to a building about 50 meters away from a site w/ an LTSP server... assuming I can get good performance out of the AC bridge... do you think fat clients would work OK over it?
14:49
supposedly should be around 450mbps... I'd have 2 clients in the building, 2 voip phones
14:49
(obviously wireless always lies... ;) )
14:49
<alkisg>
mwalters: wireless has evolved a lot since I last tested, and if it's only a link and not a "public access point", it might work
14:50
<mwalters>
yeah, it'll only be used to link the 2 buildings
14:50
<alkisg>
If a fat client can get 100 mbps without a lot of latency, it works good enough
14:51
<mwalters>
ok thanks... still pondering on it... we have this oddball building that we rent space in... right now it has a workstation with a full ubuntu install... and who knows how the wireless link currently works, but it's flakey as hell

<jeblesh>
is ther any way when a user login and theirs a session open for him on enother client that the session will migrate to the new client insted of opening a new one ?
19:16
<alkisg>
jeblesh: not with LTSP; you can do it with x2go, vnc, rdp...
19:17
<jeblesh>
and to not allaw login and state witch client has the session open ?
19:17
<alkisg>
And of course that will mean no fat clients, but only remote desktop
