hi there, i just started a tryout with ltsp. I installed lubuntu 18.04 with kwin via netboot install in virtualbox. After i added the ppa for ltsp manager and the greek ppa for ltsp. When starting ltsp-manager it asks for initial setup. But when i click ok for that - nothing happens. Starting ltsp-manager and doing the same via terminal gives the e
08:40
rror message:
08:44
<alkisg>
peters9: not many people used ltsp manager, so I stopped maintaining it,
08:44
another guys here tried to take over maintainership, but I don't know its current state,
08:44
so, I'd suggest removing ltsp manager and just using the instructions in the following page
08:44
!install
08:44
<ltsp`>
install: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu for Ubuntu, or http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Installation for other distributions
08:44
<peters9>
ah ok - so you wouldnt recommend using it?
08:45
i had some trouble to copy the error message out of virtual box anyways :P
08:45
have
08:46
ok - i am a fan of guis (dumb user) - but unmaintained/not officially supported makes handwork sound like the better solution
08:46
<alkisg>
The main thing ltsp manager offered was a GUI for mass user creation, deletion, editing etc
08:46
The setup part was just a side effect, "let's put those ltsp commands in a gui" for people like you
08:47
<peters9>
well - i dont think creating users should be so hard anyways (and happen to often) - i thought the update part and the rollback to an older image sounded nice
08:47
but guess i am new with it - and just need to read the wiki for the normal installation
08:47
thx
08:48
<alkisg>
update and rollback are just one command each
08:48
I put them in ltsp manager just to tell teachers "no need to open a terminal, ever"
08:49
(and so the GUI opened the terminal and run the ltsp-update-image command :D)
08:49
<peters9>
btw - as i am here. in the ltsp-manager section of the wiki it says that if a machine has less then 500MB Ram it is automatically /by default recognised as thin client, over 500MB Ram = fat client. Is this the default for the handmade installation also? As i want to have a fat client - but couldn't figure out the main difference in installing thin
08:49
vs fat
08:50
<alkisg>
It's the same in the default installation too
08:50
Just follow the installation page as closely as possible
08:50
it's the best for most common setups, both thin and fats
08:50
<peters9>
ok - good to know. I have no problem in opening a terminal - although i sometimes dont fully understand what exactly the command does i add ;)
08:50
<alkisg>
It supports thin and fat out of the box
08:50
<peters9>
ok - thx a lot. I will retry without gui
