<vma>
hello, how can i set multiple parameters for lightdm in LIGHTDM_CONF in ltsp.conf?
09:01supermeoplus is now known as doublesupermeopl
09:04doublesupermeopl is now known as hypermeo
09:10
<alkisg>
vma: LIGHTDM_CONF="param1
09:10
param2"
09:10
I.e. multiline string
09:11
Or you can use LIGHTDM_CONF=/etc/ltsp/lightdm.conf, and create that file
09:15
<vma>
that worked, ty
09:24
it seems lightdm autologin doesn't work properly in debian 10: it doesn't work on boot (i need to login-logout) and completely ignores user-session parameter, do you know anything about this?
09:24
<alkisg>
vma: you don't need a custom lightdm_conf for autologin, ltsp sets that up
09:25
I think I've tested debian10 and lightdm autologin and it worked
09:25
<vma>
i use it for custom session
09:25
<alkisg>
So you're saying that it doesn't work the first time right after boot, but it works if you login and then logout?
09:25
<vma>
yes
09:25
<alkisg>
can you pastebin all of the resulting lightdm.conf?
09:25
<vma>
i'm trying to set up xfreerdp session
09:26
<alkisg>
On the client, cat lightdm.conf | nc termbin.com 9999
09:28

09:31
<alkisg>
Does it work if you don't put user-session there?
09:31
<vma>
works with autologin-session only
09:32
but again if i relog first
09:34
<alkisg>
Do you have epoptes installed?
09:35
<vma>
yes
09:35
<alkisg>
Do you want me to have a loop over vnc?

<alkisg>
vma: to be sure autologin works, you could also test it directly on the server; or you could test it by running `sudo service lightdm restart`
13:08
I've seen a couple of cases on old clients where the default timeout=2 was too low, and more was needed
13:09
Finally, there's lightdm-autologin-greeter that should work all the times without even needing a timeout
13:10
<vma>
yeah, it seems i was wrong, i thought i needed to relog because i was choosing a different user from the user list
13:10
if i leave the default user and click log in i indeed log in as an autologin user
13:10
<alkisg>
ok
13:11
<vma>
and you're right, it's an autologin-user-timeout parameter, it worked after i set it to 0

vagrantc: heya! it'd be nice to get an epoptes release within January... it's ready, it just needs a changelog; should I do it and ask you to upload, or do you want to do the tagging/changelog as well?
16:49
<vagrantc>
alkisg: go ahead and prepare it as much as you can and ping me :)
16:49
<alkisg>
will do, ty
16:49
<vagrantc>
alkisg: you also have privledges to upload, if i recall correctly?
16:50
<alkisg>
I think so; but I'll need your help once, and keep notes...
16:51
Let's try to do that, this time :)
16:51
<vagrantc>
alkisg: peer review is a good thing, too :)
16:51
<alkisg>
I'll prepare it, do some reading, and ping you
16:51
Great
16:52
<vagrantc>
alkisg: rules-requires-root broke older systems?
16:57
oh, i guess that got re-reverted somewhere along the way
17:00
<alkisg>
vagrantc: if I remember correctly, debhelper 11 didn't work in xenial, then I put 9 which didn't work with rules-requires-root, and finally I used ppa backports and debhelper 10, which I think works with rules-requires-root, so we can put it back if it's missing now
17:00
<vagrantc>
ok, good.
17:00
or at least, good enough :)
17:02
<alkisg>
Hmm it's not there in ltsp either
17:02
I'll need to test if it works with d10 or not...
17:04
OK ok it's there, I didn't grep -i
17:05kvaps has left IRC (kvaps!2e1c6842@wedos.wedos.net, Remote host closed the connection)
17:06
<vagrantc>
other than apparently backwards-compatibility issues, it removes the need for some pointless root-emulation during package builds, which is overall a very nice thing. :)
17:07
<alkisg>
It's only needed in the Source section, right?
17:08
<vagrantc>
yeah
17:08
<alkisg>
On the next change to debian/control, I think we should remove Fotis from the uploaders, he won't be working on epoptes for the foreseeable future...
17:08
<vagrantc>
sure

vnc-dide: To share your screen with me, run this: sudo apt-get --yes install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr - this is a reverse connection, it doesn't need port forwarding etc.

<alkisg>
donkey: I don't see any issues, pages load, bookmarks work?
19:07
Do you log in multiple times with the same user?
19:08
<donkey>
yeah each terminal uses the same user
19:08
<alkisg>
That's the problem then
19:08
Use different users with different home directories
19:09
<donkey>
i can see how that would affect bookmarks maybe, but not page elements
19:09
like that arrow button in the message
19:09
if you can still see it. wont close on click
19:10
the elements within firefox should be user agnostic
19:10
<vagrantc>
many applications use files in the home directory to communicate with different parts of itself
19:11
not a good practice for a variety of reasons, but still very widespread

19:58
<alkisg>
donkey: write(file, byte); read(file, byte) => this returns a different byte as ANOTHER firefox wrote there
19:58
You cannot predict what chaos will happen if you run programs from the same home
19:59
dconf database destroyed, user files corrupted etc
