Has anyone been successful in creating a an LTSP Server with thin clients that are kubuntu images?
LTSP is mostly recommending fat clients currently, not thin clients
But sure, there are many kubuntu ltsp installations
I can do a fat client if need be. I just am new to LTSP and if either someone can share knowledge or point me in the right direction.. I am having difficulty on setup parameters for kubuntu.
|21:07||GodFather has joined IRC (GodFatherfirstname.lastname@example.org)|
foxhoundvenom: start with this:
install: To install LTSP: https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/
Yes, I found that and got to the "Maintaining a client image" Section but like I said, I can't find info for Kubuntu... thank you for your help alkisg btw.
foxhoundvenom: you install a desktop pc with kubuntu, and you call that server
Then, you follow instructions, which at some point say to run: ltsp image /
That then creates a fat kubuntu image for your clients to boot from
That's all, there's nothing desktop specific about it. Any desktop will do.
alkisg So, I don't run LTSP on Ubuntu with vm-like client kubuntu images?
foxhoundvenom: of course not, if you want kubuntu, just put kubuntu on the server directly
No need to maintain any client image at all, the server installation will be duplicated for the clients
the chrootless mode
|21:15||vagrantc has joined IRC (vagrantc!~vagrant@unaffiliated/vagrantc)|
alkisg So then does it duplicate the server and keep any downloaded / saved files?
foxhoundvenom: it duplicates the server /, but not the server /home, because that is shared via sshfs or nfs
Which means that a single shared home is used for all the computer lab
alkisg The best way I can describewhat I want to do is, I want to create an environment for my children using Raspberry Pi's to remote into vm's on a server.
I have the server
The Pi's are arriving today
Ah, bad purchase then :D
I want to run Linux based items
You can install kubuntu on your server, and then create a raspbian chroot by following this: https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/raspbian/
And then you'd use xfreerdp or x2go to connect to the server
You don't need any VMs
alkisg So far lots of great information... I think I may have been confused on LTSP's and Thin clients at some point. I purchased a Dell R710 Gen II for $175, threw in 8 drives running raid 6 with 64GB of RAM and 2 CPU's. I want to run the PI's in PoE mode to allow for less wires. I figured with a good enough server, I could remote into some vm's
but I have never done it before and I am loving Linux more and more every day.
I have never run thin / fat / zero clients before so it is very new to me
To clarify I have done lots of VM's
just not for clients
foxhoundvenom: google about xrdp and xfreerdp, you basically want to try a remote desktop connection
The netbooting part is not very important, you could just put a $3 sd card with raspbian on your 2-3 clients and boot with that, and then remote desktop to your server
It would be important if you had to maintain lots of clients, but for 2-3 clients it's not
alkisg Thank you so much for all your help. I am very grateful and I feel sometimes that isn't expressed enough on forums and such.
But in general remote desktop isn't very good for browsing and multimedia etc, so it's best NOT to invest on good servers, but on good clients
So if you had bought some of these ^ instead of rpis, it would make children happier, and you wouldn't even need a server
Well, I have other uses for the server. I have Nextcloud up and running on it which doubles as a media server.
alkisg I was hoping to put most of the load on the server since there is redundancy and all that, because kids being kids, things with cords can be destroyed / broken easily. With the server in a safe place = peace of mind
An HD video needs 1920×1080×4×60 = 497664000 = 5 Gbps network bandwidth
Multiply that with your number of kids. The result will be dropped frames and unhappy kids
But for simple stuff like libreoffice it'll be fine
As long as they don't want gaming and youtube
Which is what they are for, the media server and school. My wife homeschools them.
That's why we're recommending fat clients instead of thin
No gaming or Youtube.
Give xfreerdp and xrdp a test, to see if the performance suits you
